Hours of Operation
Sangria Grille was a dream of friends and chef/owners Carly Lilly and George Skandalos as far back as 2001. Having both worked in the restaurant industry for many years, they spoke often of someday building a place of their own. They wanted a warm, cheerful place to spend time hanging out while doing their favorite thing; cooking Peruvian food. In the spring of 2003, they made a phone call, which turned into a lease negotiation, which turned into a design challenge, which turned into a massive construction project, which thankfully resulted in the restaurant they’d dreamt of all along. Thanks to help of all kinds from family and friends, kind-hearted townspeople & local builders, and the excessively high credit card limits of the early 2000’s, Sangria Grille opened its doors July 19, 2004 to rave reviews.
Today, people come from near and far to eat and drink at Sangria Grille. Chefs George and Carly are deeply committed to their community. They frequently travel for research and to further their culinary education, but are always happy to come back home to Moscow, their favorite place on earth! Sangria sources ingredients from over 25 local farmers, ranchers and artisans. The menu is Peruvian with a large focus on seasonality and sustainability. The cocktails are Latin inspired and crafted using herbs from Sangria’s garden, local fruits, and South American spirits.
