Grand Rapids Magazine names best restaurants
Date: February 21, 2014
For the second year in a row, the readers of Grand Rapids Magazine have crowned the same restaurant their favorite place to eat.
Grand Rapids Magazine announced yesterday the eight winners of its 34th annual Grand Rapids Magazine Dining Awards.
The winner of Restaurant of the Year for 2013 is Grove, which is located in Grand Rapids' East Hills neighborhood, at 919 Cherry St. SE.
Grove, which won the award last year, “wows the palette,” said Marty Primeau, managing editor of Grand Rapids Magazine, a sister publication of Grand Rapids Business Journal.
Primeau added that Grove keeps winning, because it keeps offering innovative cuisine with locally sourced ingredients.
This year’s winners reveal that Midwestern fare is coming on strong, and chefs are taking classic favorites and incorporating ethnic twists, Primeau said.
“The farm-to-fork trend continues to dominate the restaurant scene in West Michigan,” Primeau said. “Local chefs are building creative menus around farm produce, ethically raised animals and artisan breads and cheese.
