Restaurants like Grand Rapids and Grand Rapids Food Truck have been doing it for decades, but this summer, they’re doing it in the name of love.
As part of a major expansion of their downtown dining space, the Grand Rapids Downtown Kitchen is adding a whole new, high-end menu to the mix.
The menu includes the usual combo of burgers, chicken wings, salads, burgers, fries, pasta and sandwiches, but also new dishes, including the classic chicken salad, chicken tikka masala, roasted chicken, fried chicken, grilled chicken, chicken and more.
There’s also a “breakfast sandwich” featuring breakfast-like pastries with scrambled eggs, bacon, bacon and eggs, and a “beverage menu” featuring a selection of seasonal drinks like ginger beer and lemonade.
And there are more “breakfasts” as well.
There are also more “desserts,” like apple pie, chocolate chip cookies, lemon sorbet, strawberry sorbet and more, plus an ever-expanding “sandwich menu.”
And, of course, Grand Rapids has its signature chicken wings and pancakes, which have become a staple of Grand Rapids restaurants for decades.
The grand opening will be on August 16 and will be open only on the weekends.
Here’s a look at the new menu, including some of the more popular items.
