Grand Rapids Restaurant Rumor Mill

Recommended Posts

If im correct, the new bbq/ chicken place is another Corey Hart/ Shannon Williams venture. Does anyone know what's the hold up on its opening?

It's actually Tommy Fitzgeralds place. Owner or exec. chef (not sure if he's both) of the recently destroyed Jimmy's grill in Lowell. He is the executive chef though of Corey and Shannon's new place so you're close. I think he's probably just overwhelmed with work at the moment with Churchills opening late this month and Jimmy's burning down last week.

Well, looks like what i heard was incorrect. There's a sign in 48 West's window saying they're reopening tonight.

There was also a "Celebrate The Grand Reopening" ad in the paper yesterday. I thought for sure they were done for. That's good news - I had a good diner there the time I went.

Heard a "rumor" so to speak that "The Stack" is reopening as "The Stack" on New Years Eve. Anyone else hear this?

I hope they have the huge cover charge, loud music, and over priced drinks again.

That'd be sweet.

Ok, so I have some updated information from someone I consider reliable..

Yes, the building is going to reopen, but not as "The Stack". It will be remodled, new decor and a "new atmosphere", and will happen sometime after the New Year, but no exact date has been set.

The person who I got this from was going to post, but forgot thier password :rolleyes:

You mean across the street, near the CW guy?

I do believe that's the Kendall Bldg. And I hear it's for sale...

I don't know if Hopcat is still opening on the 17th, but they're definitely doing some serious work in there. I can't see much through the windows, but I can hear what sounds like a jackhammer from a few floors up...

Welcome to UP Chad! My wife and I and our neighbors may check it out Saturday night. :thumbsup: BTW: Do you guys have a liquor license there? :dontknow:

I've heard a lot of great things about Bloom, and I hope the new location goes great!

Is that the building that was a Revco in the very early 1970's? (Revco took away one of my favorite lunch/ice cream sundae counters when I worked in the Keeler Buildling.)

I heard that there is a new Ethiopian restaurant in Eastown.

I have not been able to get over to Eastown yet...can anyone confirm this?

It's coming. They're going to have noodles and rice to sub for Injera...and silverware too.
