Grape and The Grain has been spectacular throughout the last year. We want to highlight them as the business of the month. This location, while technically in Mills50 (our sister district to the East), has been and is now a member of Ivanhoe Village Main Street too. Owner, Christian Arqueros, has been navigating the difficult waters of shutdowns and re-openings throughout COVID-19. They are serving their own food items. They have teamed up with different food trucks on the back patio. This is allowing them to operate within the State of Florida guidelines, positioning them to survive a pandemic.
The back patio offers a spaced out setting with lovely lights strung throughout. A variety of seating is available, including options under a patio roof for use during rain storms. For groups over 5, there are large red patio seats in a camp style setting, allowing you to distance and enjoy the evening. With nicer weather headed our way, this is a great way to support a local business and capture a moment of a night out on the town.
Masks are required when not sitting. Sanitizer is available. Social distancing is enforced. However, you can also enjoy their legendary frozen rosé or red wine slushies. The patio is open with glowing lights. The beer is cold and the wine is pouring. Allowing a relatively normal night out. A large thank you for their continued support of our Orlando Main Street programs. Their ability to pivot in a difficult time. And their continued sense of community. Congratulations on being our Business of the Month!
