La Grande Orange

Tucked among the boutiques of Phoenix’s hip central area, La Grande Orange is not your average pizzeria. Executive Chef Shay Gau promises that the inventive menu contains only natural ingredients, many of them locally-sourced. Be sure to try the variety of cheeses, meats, and uniquely-topped pizzas offered, highlights among them being the avocado and prosciutto pizza and smoked salmon salad. Libations aplenty also entice many diners—La Grande Orange offers a wide variety of local beers as well as the tummy-healing elixir, Kombucha, on draft. lagrandeorangegrocery.com.
