It comes with great sadness every year that we remind people which local restaurants are no longer with us. Restaurants go out of business for a variety of reasons, but the one reason that we never want any place that we really enjoyed to close is because they lacked the foot traffic.
Here is the list of restaurants who have gone out of business since our last yearly update:
L. Simone African Cuisine
Brandywine (Eastown Location)
Brighton Graye’s Bistro
Chuancai Fang (Grand Rapids)
City Vu (Holland)
The Dog King
Earth Angels Soul Food
Flying Bridge Fish
Forest Hills Inn
Garden Diner (Formerly Bartertown)
Great Lakes Shipping Company
Milo’s (Grand Haven)
Oh My Salad
The Pizza Experiment (Formerly Cult Pizza)
Small Town Soup Shop (Grand Haven)
Waldron Public House
XO Asian Cuisine
Now, I am sure that I may have missed something, but these are the places that have been on my radar this past year.
Make sure to support your local restaurants by thinking of them first when you are considering dining options.
