Montrose Memorial Hospital’s Lobby Grille is much more than your typical hospital cafeteria. It’s one part gourmet restaurant, one part non-profit organization, one part teaching platform, folded – not beaten. Lobby Grille’s mission is exceeding expectation, local and fresh. As an example, each week the Grille cooks, poaches, bastes or any other way uses 1,000 eggs from local sources for guests and patients alike.
The Lobby Grille’s passion for local foods shapes it’s philosophy, spending as many dollars as it can locally to reinvest in the community.
In addition to a passion for local is a passion for flavor. Lobby Grille’s menu is filled with fresh, field-to-table inventory. Produce, dairy and meats are sourced from the surrounding areas. From bison to tomatoes; fennel to baby artichokes; and sweet corn to poblano peppers, as many items you wish to sample, the chances are good that the raw ingredients didn’t come from a can, they came from just down the road.
