You remember your first Asian restaurant. No, come on, now — not the one with a hundred blessed dishes to choose from, each with the gooey, gloopy consistency and a Day-Glo sauce to match. The real one.
Restaurant Week GR is a celebration of outstanding local food. It’s an opportunity to try something new while experiencing the best that Grand Rapids restaurants have to offer. We sent Revue writers to four participating restaurants for a sneak preview of what’s coming to your table.
Mad Men has been off the air for two years now — it’s high time we millennials admit that Don Draper taught us how to drink whiskey. The education shouldn’t stop there, and fortunately for our tastes, Bridge Street is at it again with another establishment dedicated to upping our collective spirits knowledge. This month, Revue sat down with Meagan Freriks of One Bourbon to talk whiskey, fried chicken and daily homemade pie that would make Dale Cooper blush.
Butcher’s Union, occupying the former Monte's space, is the new rage. You may already know this if you use Facebook or Instagram, which lately seem to exist for the sole purpose of enabling Grand Rapids diners to inform their friends they’ve secured seating there.
Yes, outdoor dining season is upon us. We kicked off last summer by surveying some notable alfresco eating locations in the area, and we could have filled an entire issue with it. But since print space, like summer, is finite, we’ll simply offer another (admittedly incomplete) pile of suggestions for outdoor dining spots that are new, notable or worth revisiting.
With a new restaurant that opens Friday, Coppercraft Distillery in Holland wants to showcase the possibilities of pairing food with cocktails.
A new era of doughnut consumption has dawned. West Michigan is home to several beloved doughnut stops — Marge’s Donut Den, Sandy’s Donuts, Van’s Pastry Shoppe, to name a few — but here are some of the impressive new players that have joined the market in the past year.
When it comes to dining, strip malls get a bad reputation. The universally drab architecture of strip-mall buildings could make you think they hold no culinary gems. However, we all know it’s what’s inside that counts. With excellent food from all over the world, here’s a few strip mall sensations that deserve a visit.
Family recipes on the menu bring back the power of food made from love, magic and a little history. Whether it’s your mom, nonna or uncle’s secret sauce, you can rest assured no one slaps their name on a dish unless it has achieved perfection through generational lore.
Brunch is no longer just a late breakfast for lazy folk. No — this weekend tradition is a sacred event dedicated to early morning drinking and specialty menus, far superior to your standard breakfast offerings. Read up on where to find stellar brunch menus and Bloody Mary bars.
