TGB Hospitality Group is pleased to announce the launch of its seventh restaurant: The Granola Bar in Darien, CT. Featuring day-to-night dining and a sophisticated vibe, The Granola Bar Darien will make its debut at 1020 Post Road on April 27, 2023.
As TGB marks its tenth anniversary this year, the brand is expanding from a daytime destination to a day-to-night concept while still offering the same level of warmth and hospitality. Darien is the second TGB location to serve dinner, wine, beer and cocktails, in addition to breakfast and brunch. Like its sister location in Rye, the Darien menu offers elevated share plates as well as bar bites and TGB’s signature breakfast and lunch offerings.
TGB has partnered with several local and national brands to create a carefully curated selection for guests. The Darien location will offer bread from local bakery Flour Water Salt Bread, and bagels from Darien’s Upper Crust Bagel Company. Guests can also enjoy coffee from Coffee of Grace, a premium coffee company that emphasizes environmental stewardship and seeks to support farmers by sourcing directly from co-ops in Rwanda, Peru, Guatemala, and Brazil.
The Granola Bar Darien will be open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, and will be open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday. Happy hour will be offered from 3-6pm Wednesday-Saturday, and the restaurant will also serve brunch on weekends.
The indoor/outdoor space is also available for a variety of private events including cocktail parties and seated dinners.
“We have long hoped to be part of the Darien community and are thrilled to be opening a restaurant in town,” said TGB Co-Founder and Co-CEO Julie Mountain. “This is the first time we are intentionally designing a restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and we have put a lot of thought into the design, the menu and the experience to make it a place guests will want to return to regularly.” Fellow Co-Founder and Co-CEO Dana Noorily added, “As we grow, the feel of The Granola Bar has become reflective of our team and our guests – many have been with us for years and their input has helped shape this location and the future of our brand. I’m especially excited about the design of this particular location. Our goal is to create a space which makes you feel like you have been transported to a major city. This is a spot you can come for any meal of the day and to escape the mundane.”
