July 31, 2017; FOX 17

If there is one good problem we have in Grand Rapids, it’s that we have so many fabulous places to eat! On top of that, Restaurant Week Grand Rapids (RWGR) is just another great way for local chefs to showcase their talents.

RWGR will run from Aug. 9-20 with nearly 70 participating locations which includes 15 new ones this year. This is a wonderful time for everyone to “Taste the City” with some offering a $28 per person three-course meal or two dining for the same price at select locations. For the first time ever, some locations will offer a $14 lunch option, which is a two-course meal. This event is also about paying-it-forward. From every meal sold, restaurants will donate $1 to the Secchia Institute of Culinary Education Student Scholarship Fund at Grand Rapids Community College.
