Anyone know of spots in Downtown Grand Rapids
My favorites downtown are Six One Six (contemporary American), Leo's (contemporary seafood), and Bistro Bella Vita (contemporary Italian). All are nice upscale places, where well-behaved kids shouldn't be a problem.
You'll find more recommendations in these lengthy GR discussions (where some of the information is somewhat dated but much of it is still accurate/relevant):
