d’Sozo chef back with Garden Grill Cafe

Inside the new Garden Grill Cafe.

Since d’Sozo went out of business last spring, I’ve been getting frequent e-mails from vegetarian/vegan diners wanting to know where chef Miguel Larcher was and when he’d be cooking again.

On Thursday, Larcher finally opened his new restaurant he’s been working on for months, Garden Grill Cafe, on the first floor of Occidental Plaza, 300 N. Main. (Longtime Wichitans will remember Two Feathers, El Torero and other restaurants operating in the space.)

The restaurant focuses on vegetarian and vegan food made with Greek, Italian and Mediterranean flavors. Larcher is offering daily specials and a menu full of smoothies, sandwiches, pizzas and pasta dishes. (You can see the menu here. 

The Garden Grill Cafe is inside the Occidental Plaza.

Larcher, a native of Martinique, plans Tuesday-night cooking classes and Monday-night lectures by health professionals. He’ll open for Sunday brunch starting on Nov. 4.

Until then, his hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays with dinner hours from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
