Following California's cautious reopening plans last week, the folks behind The Grove are rolling out yet another way for Angelenos to safely visit its stylish property (and lift local spirits). For the first time ever, the popular L.A. retail and dining center is opening its usually pedestrian- and trolley-only Main Street to vehicles for a retro drive-through that'll benefit nonprofit organization Para Los Niños' COVID-19 relief efforts.
This Saturday from 12 to 8 p.m., drivers can cruise through The Grove and grab a bite to eat at Miramar To-Go, which will offer bites from stylish Montecito resort Rosewood Miramar Beach's Michelin-starred executive chef Massimo Falsini alongside fare from Palisades Village eatery Hank's (both properties are owned by developer Rick Caruso and Co.) Falsini's Miramar food truck will serve up fried chicken sandwiches, tacos, salads, Hank's Double Diamond burger, ice cream sandwiches, and kid's meals, and Icelandic Glacial's still and sparkling water will also be on offer (think refreshing flavors like Bulgarian Elderflower and Sicilian Lemon).
Of course, the scenic route will include sights and sounds from The Grove's Bellagio-inspired fountain, while the lifestyle hub's bright green trolley and its conductor will be there to greet guests.
Since late March, the Miramar food truck has served over 12,000 free meals to frontline workers, first responders, and others in need. For every meal sold at The Grove's drive-through, another meal will be donated to Skid Row-based Para Los Niños — now that's some good news to chew on.
