Businesses come and businesses go, but this neighbourhood restaurant and lounge has been a permanent fixture in the Midnapore Mall since day one.
The Grove, as it is affectionately known, started out as a restaurant with a small backgammon lounge (the locals used to show up with their backgammon sets on Saturday afternoons). The owners expanded the lounge when the shop next door closed and have been bringing in regular music acts like Stan Foster, Celebration, and JD Cuda, ever since. It's small, but cozy. The dance floor at the front of the stage accommodates the regular Thursday, Friday and Saturday crowds, but barely. If you need elbow room on the dance floor go during the week.
The restaurant is classy, romantic, spacious, and surprisingly quiet. Drapes adorn the walls with large comfortable seats in booths running down the sides for extra privacy. The food is Middle Eastern/Lebanese. There is nothing too complicated on the menu - lamb, veal, chicken, seafood - and the prices reflect that. The restaurant has also built up a solid reputation for its pizza for eat-in and delivery and has expanded the pizza delivery to a second location.
If you are looking for a nice evening out that included dining and dancing 'The Grove' will accommodate all your needs.
