Lodge on the Desert's Restaurant to Reopen

Posted By on Tue, Nov 17, 2009 at 1:14 PM

Lodge on the Desert's restaurant (306 N. Alvernon Road)—which closed back in July for renovations and a concept change—is reopening this week with a new chef and menu.

A press release put out today says the restaurant will begin serving dinner on Friday, Nov. 20, with lunch service beginning on Monday, Nov. 30.

The place has named Ryan Clark, the former sous chef at The Dish, as its new chef. Clark—a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America who has also worked at Canyon Ranch and Fuego—has redesigned the menu with a focus on "the freshest products and ingredients, most locally grown and locally sourced," according to the release.

"And we believe our guests have a right to know the source of the food they are enjoying as well as the methods used to prepare it. Our role is to facilitate the food’s journey from farm to fork,” Clark stated in the release.

Reopening the restaurant is the final touch on a $15 million renovation. Originally a private residence, Lodge on the Desert first opened as a business in 1936.

Call 320-2000, or visit their Web site for more information.
