Grand Rapids Restaurant Rumor Mill

Recommended Posts

Looking at a satellite view, the south side of 28th looks to be constrained by Little Plaster Creek and associated wetlands. Though for the sake of the new hotel I hope they fill in the car-sized potholes in the access drive.

Mission BBQ is opening on E Beltline north of Knapp, where Bagger Daves was.


I ate at the new City BBQ on 28th near woodland last week. Very good!  But... what's with all the BBQ all of the sudden?

In bulk, brisket is $2-3 a pound, they can easily charge $15-20 a pound when cooked. Pork shoulder is $1 a pound, slap half a pound on white bread with some pickles and it is an $8 sandwich. Combine that with the counter service business model (i.e. no servers) and BBQ is about the only high(ish) margin restaurant business out there.

Mark Sellers' Tiki Bar and Restaurant is set to open October 19th.  Third floor tiki-themed hotel rooms to open in 2020. 




I'll try to get some pictures when I go, really excited for this to finally open.


Also, we got a bit on national press for it: https://punchdrink.com/articles/most-notable-best-new-bars-america-fall-winter-2019/
