Missing Grand Rapids Tried and True

sunshine | May 12, 2003 12:41 PM

Moved away from Grand Rapids, MI, and find myself missing some old, dependable standbys:

best beer and burger joint - cottage bar
best neighborhood dive bar - the pickwick
best "nice" restaurant with bar/date place - grapevine
best italian in GR - tuscan express (don't let the name or the location in a strip mall fool you)
best vegetarian and leisurely breakfast - gaia cafe
best martinis/ok meals - bistro bella vita
pleasant brunch - cherie inn
ethnic food faves - there aren't that many, but GR does have korean, thai, indian, vietnamese, chinese, ethiopian, and swedish food - i miss them allfor their unique character and perseverance in a tough market.

also miss palazzolo's homemade white chocolate raspberry gelato
