The Grove Restaurant, Grand Rapids


By Nancy Smorch

How did I not know about this???? 

The other day my husband and I decided to try out a newer restaurant in Eastown Grand Rapids, Michigan - The Grove.  I was attracted to it because it uses local farmers and artisans for much of their menu options.  After sitting down and looking over the menu, I just about started to cry.  The selection was amazing, creative, fresh, local, and something else that I can’t quite put my finger on at the moment.  The service was impeccable - perfect! 

I recognized most of the farms that were listed as sources of the ingredients which made me feel confident as to the quality of the food and the care with which it was grown.  I have to say it was by far, one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had.  The only drawback - I could only eat so much food - I would have to wait for another visit to The Grove to try something else!

Check out their website and give them a try!
