Scala Stonegrill, 1411 S. Garfield Ave., Alhambra, brings a unique interactive experience of dining where dishes are served cooking at the table on high-heat natural stones. Introduced and developed by Stonegrill International Pty. Ltd. in Australia in 1985, Scala Stonegrill licensed with the company to bring this age-old concept of cooking on stones to the tables of modern-day diners.

Special types of stones are heated to 752°F in a customized Stonegrill® oven and can stay heated for up to 40 minutes for diners to enjoy their hot dish longer. The Stonegrill® technique sears the meats quicker and retains the natural juices keeping the flavors and tenderness of the food. Stonegrill choices of hearty USDA meat and seafood are sided with fresh vegetables and house- made sauces for dipping. This cook-it-yourself grilling gives diners their own choices and way of cooking their meat from rare to well done. The Stonegrill style of dining is fresh, healthy, and nutritious because it does not require the use of added fat or oil. Scala Stonegrill wants its customers to experience a fun and exciting way of stonegrill dining with the feelings of comfort and enjoyment of the tranquil ambience.
