Lunch in Grand Rapids, MI
I am from the other side of the state, but will be in Grand Rapids next weekend for a short time and want to have lunch in the area. It will be my husband and I and our very well behaved 4 year old. Any suggestions for a can't miss spot?
Which day(s) will you be lunching? Lots of places are only open for lunch during the week, not on weekends (including, unfortunately, my two favorites - Leo's and Bistro Bella Vita). Some are open for lunch only on Saturdays and not Sundays, while others do Sunday brunch.
I like Rose's on Reed Lake a lot, as much for the delightful setting as the good food, and they're open seven days for lunch. It's a great place for lunch because their menu includes a lot of "light fare" items - wood-fired pizzas, sandwiches, and the like. As its name implies, it's right on Reed Lake; they have a huge outdoor deck overlooking the lake for al fresco dining, weather permitting, and it's absolutely lovely. The view of boaters etc is a pleasure for adults and kids alike. It's on the east side of town. www.thegilmorecollection.com/Rose%27s...
