Family out to expand operation with new restaurant

Phil Castle, The Business Times

Laurie Hammond believes the food, service and atmosphere that have made a Grand Junction restaurant a popular venue for nearly 30 years also will attract patrons to a second location for the family operation.

While the newly opened Loree’s restaurant in downtown Grand Junction won’t be identical to Garfield’s, Hammond said customers can be expect the same fresh seafood, steaks and other fare served in a similarly upscale atmosphere.

Hammond handles marketing for her mother, Sue Hammond, who owns Garfield’s and now Loree’s.

Loree’s opened at 336 Main St. in a space formerly occupied Dolce Vita. The Italian restaurant closed in December after 16 years as mainstay on Main Street.

Laurie Hammond said her mother decided to open the restaurant in part to bring the Garfield’s experience to a downtown location.

Sue Hammond purchased Garfield’s last May after working there since the restaurant opened in 1986.

The space that used to house Dolce Vita was upgraded with new paint and carpeting as well as hardwood flooring around the bar, Laurie Hammond said

Loree’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant offers seating for more than 100, including tables outdoors along Main Street and inside an atrium that can accommodate parties and other events.

Lunch at Loree’s offers a casual setting, Hammond said, with a menu that features fish, pasta, salads, sandwiches and a build-a-burger option.

For those in a hurry, a 20-minute lunch menu available between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. includes french dip, lobster salad and philly cheese steak sandwiches as well as spicy fish tacos.

Dinner offers a more upscale experience with fresh seafood and steaks, Hammond said. Like Garfield’s, Loree’s will offer a choice of various preparation techniques for  seafood, she said.

Loree’s also will offer two important attributes of a successful restaurant, Hammond said: consistently good food and service.

At the same time, though, Hammond said she hopes Loree’s will build on the family operation by filling downtown niche that caters to people staying at nearby hotels and attending events.

    My elderly mother and I had lunch at Loree’s yesterday and I was served spicy tuna fish tacos and she had grilled cod. It was the worst experience we ever had at a restaurant. The raw fish on the tacos tasted horrible because it wasn’t fresh – or wasn’t cooked properly. I just couldn’t finish it. For the rest of the day my stomach was upset and I had that taste of rank, strong fish in my mouth. My mother came home and got sick – her cod wasn’t cooked well. THey knew that we couldn’t finish our lunch and charged us full price anyway. They gave us a coupon for a free appetizer – like we’re ever going to go back there again!

    I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant and couldn’t finish my meal!

  • Local Fan of Garfield’s!!!

    Unfortunately, “consistently good service” is NOT one of the things you can expect here! The fact that they only had ONE high chair, which was being used when we arrived with our 14 month old daughter, was beyond disappointing, too! Waste your money and time here at your own risk!!!
