ReGrow Dining Spotlight

Lunds & Byerlys 
Al Gartner – General Manager  

There’s a lot going on at the Lunds & Byerlys store in White Bear Lake. Although their popular café and craft beer and wine bar “The Mezz” had to suspend on premise activity, just like all restaurants, their online, curbside and in-store hot food bars are all delicious and safe options for their customers.  

General Manager Al Gartner and his dedicated team of professionals look forward to the days when the café seating, beer, and wine bar reopen, but for now they maintain their laser sharp focus on making sure their customers have a safe and comfortable shopping experience as we navigate through these challenging times. “We have taken care of our customers and they are rewarding us with their loyalty, and for that we are very grateful”, says Al. Creations Café, the fresh self-serve hot food bar is open daily from 7am to 7pm, offering quality meals you can build yourself. L & B has taken the Safe Dining Pledge – utensils on the buffets are changed every twenty minutes and surfaces are sanitized constantly. They even employ a Store Ambassador to continuously watch over the safety processes. 

L & B offers their customers many creative, sustainable, and flavorful Take-Out dining options, such as: Holiday Turkey and Prime Rib Dinners; sustainable salmon, tilapia, and shrimp Fresh microwavable dinners to go; and a European Pastry section with a real European Pastry chef on staff. The loyalty rewards program “Extras” offers special package deals that are usually only available one per day, but as a safety precaution to limit visits, they are being offered to Extras members in packages of three per visit during their “12 Days of Extras” programThe knowledgeable wine staff will help you pick just the right wine for that holiday meal. In fact, the Wine Shop was recently voted “Best Wine Selection” in Vadnais Heights.
