11 Weird, Beautiful Things Inside Grange Hall’s New Restaurant
Fans of Rajan Patel and Jeffrey Lee’s Grange Hall, an exotic home-décor shop renowned for its collection of oddities like woven baskets with deer-antler handles and snake-skeleton paperweights, as well as ornate flower arrangements and an on-site apothecary, will surely recognize the playful touches at their new restaurant.
