    I wanted to drop a line about my new business! It is called The Salted Cupcake and features salty, sweet, and unique flavored cupcakes which I create. We will have 10 cupcake flavors per day plus 2 wheat free flavors (12 in total). If my inspection goes smoothly, we should start our soft opening on Tuesday, June 16.

  11. Hi Chris,

    You stopped into The Holiday Bar the other day for our $4 Sunday BYO burger. I decided to stop by the site and noticed The Holiday Bar isn’t listed in your general directory of restaurants. What can we do to be featured on your website? We’ve had our full kitchen/food menu open since late July of 2016.
    We would love for you to stop by and try some of our other items!

    As you know we’re a local neighborhood bar/restaurant that has served the West Side for 111 years. We have great burgers and eclectic menu offerings, including escargot and pork belly tacos. Our patio will be opening soon for those that love to dine outside!

    Our hours are Monday-Saturday 11am-2am, and Sunday 12pm-2am

    Hope to speak with you soon, have a great day!

  13. Hello Chris –
    So excited to be a part of this local food effort – What a great way to build a following and support of the “little guy”!

    As an officially new “little guy,” I wanted to throw Cookie Chicks’ hat into the mix here. We have just opened our new shop at 3979 West River Dr., NE in Comstock Park and are ready to support the local sweet tooth. We bake-to-order gourmet cookies and other goodies, using premium ingredients, no preservatives AND we deliver to our customers – we like to say that our cookies are “worth the calories!” We are also the West Michigan fulfiller of Fruit Bouquets for, so we do have some healthy stuff available as well – though it is still best, covered with chocolate.

    We invite you and other EatGR members to stop by our new place to check it out – we’ll even give you a cookie.
