A.K. Rikk's Patio Series: The Sovengard

A.K. Rikk's Patio Series: The Sovengard


Grand Rapids is home to exceptional experiences that are sure to impress the well-traveled. We are sharing our favorite places for soaking in what is left of our beautiful Michigan summer! Last week, we highlighted Reserve Wine and Food. This week, we want to highlight another one of our favorite restaurants with outdoor seating in Grand Rapids- The Sovengard! 

The Sovengard is a biergarten and kitchen on the West-Side of Grand Rapids featuring hyper-local and seasonally based cuisine and beverages. Here you will experience two separate farm to table food menus and three comfortable dining spaces while enjoying a multitude of craft beers, cocktails, and wine. The Sovengard draws some of their inspiration from Hygge- a Danish word that often defies English translation, but means a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of well-being. When asking a Dane, though, they may be more apt to point at a scene to describe it than citing some sort of definition. “Enjoying a beer while fireside may be cozy, but add in some dear friends and great food, and there you may find yourself some hygge. At The Sovengard, we hope to espouse this feeling and state of mind.” During the warmer weather, see their 60 foot living wall and play on the bocce ball court. The patio also has yard games, a shipping container bar, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

One of their favorite cocktails on the menu is The Walk in the Woods- earthy, flavored, and unexpected. Click on the video below to learn more!

Pair these cocktails with the “The Pappardelle” for an amazing combination.
