This place oozes unique, eclectic taste, and creativity.
You walk in and the staff is immediately fabulous. Sincerely warm and welcoming, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful, they answer all your questions.
Grange Hall is an avant-garde flower shop. It is also so much more. Fragrances (such as Histoires de Parfums and Costes), teas (Mariage Frères), decorative housewares (such as Nymphenburg and Lee Hale), jewelry (Martin Bernstein, Gabriella Kiss, and Christian Koban to name a few) gifts (cards, books, journals) and a restaurant have been added.
Your eyes are going to want to cover every inch of detail in this place, which is no small fete. Take the time to look. We were told they change it up every week. Even the restaurant menu is hardly the same week to week. If you are lucky enough to come once a month or even every weekend, you will be walking into a different dreamy wonderland with each visit.
Let’s start with a few of my favorite things in the shop.
This chandelier was designed by jeweler Martin Bernstein. There is so much to love about this piece. It serves its purpose by giving light, yes. It is also so aesthetically pleasing. A little chaotic at the top, it delicately drips what seems like molten gold and drops of crystals. You want to touch it, but you shouldn’t. But I did, and I’m not sorry.
I kept coming back to this display. The leopard is made of feathers. The giant mirror reflects the display and the rest of the shop. The feathered trees are lamps and it is surrounded by decorative pillows and collectibles.
The flowers here are incredible. It is as if Flora (goddess of the spring and of flowers and blossoms) came to visit and left her best creations.
Classical, gothic or whimsical, there is something for everyone.
Now, the restaurant.
Decorated with an equal amount of creativity that went into the shop, the restaurant deserves as much visual attention as the front.
The menu presentations were so elaborate, I bordered on being afraid to open them to diving in from my excitement at how fancy I was. I dove in.
I loved the small black tea menu with the black and white floral cameo on front.
Sugar spheres and iridescent flatware just made it fun.
The Cheese Plate
Thinly sliced apples and pears, dried fruit, and nuts were presented with cheeses that ranged from creamy house-made ricotta to a strong cheese from outer Brooklyn. Artisan bread and a fig and pear compote completed the plate.
The ricotta was to die for. I have never had anything like it. On the grilled bread with the compote, it was sheer cheese ecstasy.
The Fruit Plate
It was hot outside and this just sounded refreshing.
Melon, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mango, starfruit, grapes, orange, and kiwi. All perfection.
This was the best burger I have had in as long as I can remember. It wasn’t even a hamburger – it was a turkey burger. Perfectly seasoned and bursting with flavor, it was topped with tzatziki and served with a small bean salad with a very light and clean dressing.
The Italian Ham Sandwich
Hammy, cheesy and served on a bread that was like a real unfilled French eclair (not the donut shop kind). Served with a spiced pear compote, it was delicious.
No room for desserts or tea. This time.
