Restaurant Week celebrates the local food scene


One of the best opportunities to try restaurants in Grand Rapids kicks off this week.

The 13th annual GR Restaurant Week begins Friday, November 4 and runs through Saturday, November 12. More than 40 restaurants will participate in this year’s celebration of West Michigan’s culinary scene, hosted by Experience Grand Rapids.

“Restaurant Week is a fun and exciting way to enjoy some of the best food Grand Rapids has to offer,” said Kate Lieto, Associate Vice President of Marketing for Experience Grand Rapids. “Specialty menus are where local chefs really shine and showcase their culinary skills and creativity.”

Restaurants may offer two or more dishes for $25 or less or two more dishes for more than $25. Some restaurants also offer desserts and drinks.

A digital component of Restaurant Week GR will help raise money for a scholarship fund while offering diners a chance to win a prize. By downloading the Restaurant Week GR digital pass to a phone, diners can check into the restaurant and receive a coupon for a future visit.

Three registrations also earn a prize: a sustainable lunch box or a ticket to the Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival at DeVos Place from November 17-19.

Every digital pass check-in also translates to Experience Grand Rapids donating $1 to the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College. Since Restaurant Week GR began in 2010, it has contributed over $150,000 to the local culinary education program.

Grand Rapids was named No. 25 on WalletHub’s Top Foodie Cities earlier this year based on 29 metrics. There were 180 cities judged against the criteria.

Grand Rapids was #6 on the list for affordability and #40 for diversity, accessibility, and quality.
