The Luggage Room Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: Located next door to La Grande Orange Café, occupying the former luggage room at the restored train station, is this lively pizzeria. Red walls, a prominent wood-burning oven and a horseshoe-shaped bar illuminated by a trio of crystal chandeliers cast a casual, funky vibe, heightened by loud music. The menu is short, but consider starting with the LGO chopped salad, a generous portion of lightly dressed chopped greens elevated by diced salami, pistachios and golden raisins. Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese are as sweet as a dessert, but somewhat addictive. Among pizzas, consider the "mushroom party," with crimini and oyster mushrooms and fennel --- an optional runny egg is recommended. The "rocket man" is loaded with Fresno chiles, broccolini, roasted garlic and oven-dried tomatoes. For a finale, we recommend Key lime pie or the multi-layered red velvet cake. The mostly California wine list is more than respectable, but a bit pricey for a pizzeria. Cocktails include the "amaro punch" --- Fords gin, Amaro ciociaro, lemon and sparkling water --- which can be ordered by the carafe for the table ($39).

No Happy New Years for me at my beloved Luggage Room
by jinglehyme on Fri Dec 30, 2011 7:31 pm
After settling in at the bar an enjoying a cocktail I ordered a couple of pizzas to go. While waiting for my order I witnessed a woman behind the bar screaming and gesturing to my bartender – she was scolding her for too generous of a pour – right in front of me!

I sought this woman out to tell her that her actions were draconian and that these good looking pleasant servers should not be controlled by such an inappropriate control freak, especially in front of the clients that support the entire operation.

Hello corporate – goodbye local hangout.

(I have to mention that I was present for the grand opening of LGO and have sent hundreds of people there over the years.)

No Happy New Years for me! If this wasn’t bad enough, when I got home the pizza was half the size it used to be and the toppings miniaturized. (I hear the chef quit!)
