Grand Rapids is home to exceptional experiences that are sure to impress the well-traveled. Over the next two weeks, we want to highlight some of our favorite restaurants with outdoor seating in Grand Rapids. These spots are great for soaking in what is left of our beautiful Michigan summer!
Reserve Wine & Food is a luxurious restaurant in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids with a farm-focused menu, beautiful ambiance, and exceptional service. Their menu, overseen by Executive Chef, Luke Verhulst, offers unique appetizers, cheese & charcuterie plates, and the best entrées in Grand Rapids. With a seasonal menu, Verhulst utilizes local, seasonal ingredients for each dish. They make all breads, pastas and pastries in-house and do all butchering on site. Reserve is a member of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program. They partner with farmers who share their views, that responsibly grown produce and sustainably nurtured meat taste best. While they are known for their extensive wine list, they also have a thoughtfully curated selection of whiskey and other spirits. Their seasonal drink menu is designed to complement their food menu, and is headed up by industry veteran and President of the Grand Rapids chapter of the U.S. Bartenders Guild, Rob Hanks.
Some current cocktail favorites to enjoy in the main dining area or the terrace are The Dunder Mifflin, a refreshing and complex herbal cocktail, and the Oaxacan Camazotz, a stronger drink made of Mezcal, the pride of Oaxaca.
Pair these cocktails with the “Grilled Cheese” Gnocchi and the Red Drum Fish. See more drink offerings HERE.
