Taste Grand Rapids

When you come to Grand Rapids, you and your friends will want to check out some of the great restaurants very near the quilt show. There are cuisines to match every taste and budget. I’ve eaten at most of them and can tell you there is some good food just waiting for you to try.


Within walking distance you can find choices ranging from burgers at Bull’s Head Tavern, tapas at San Chez Bistro, fabulous seafood at Charley’s Crab House or authentic Italian dishes at Tre Cugini. Grand Rapids has 75 different restaurants in the downtown area, all ready to deliver delicious fare for the hungry quilter.


If you’re saving your dollars for fabric, you still have wonderful choices of dining on a budget. Enjoy Asian cuisine at Angel’s Thai Cafe’, favorites from familiar spots such as TGI Fridays and Subway, or a slice of delicious pizza from Big O’s Cafe, just to name a few spots.


As a local, if I were planning my itinerary for the day, I would start at Sundance Grill for breakfast and order a Morning Star Scramble. On my way back to Devos Center, I would stop at Biggby Coffee and grab a Mocha Carmel Latte. Then for lunch I would venture out for tapas at San Chez Bistro for authentic spanish tapas. For dinner I would take my friends with me to Leo’s for delicious seafood. Then after dinner, I would stop by the B.O.B., a wonderful old warehouse that has been turned into a multi-faceted entertainment venue, complete with a micro-brewery, night club, and best of all a comedy club.


This is only the tip of the iceberg for what downtown Grand Rapids has to offer you. You and your quilting friends have a wide variety of wonderful restaurants to choose from for all of your meals. You certainly won’t have to eat at the same place twice. All venues are eager to welcome quilters and ready to serve you delicious meals all week.
