The Gaslight Village shopping district in East Grand Rapids will be the home of West Michigan’s newest steakhouse.

Bowdie’s Chophouse, which also has locations in Saugatuck and Lansing, this fall plans to open a location in the former Derby Station, at 2237 Wealthy St. SE, the building’s landlord, CWD Real Estate Investment, said today.

Bowdie’s original location is in Saugatuck, at 230 Culver St., and it also has a restaurant in Lansing, at 320 E. Michigan Ave.

For President Tyler Bowdish, Gaslight Village is the next logical step for the “upscale steakhouse.”

“Bowdie’s Chophouse is thrilled to be joining the Gaslight Village and East Grand Rapids community,” he said.

“We feel Bowdie’s perfectly matches the boutique, small-town feel that Gaslight Village is already known for and are beyond excited to bring our talented staff, attentive service, exquisite cuts and handcrafted cocktails all together to provide a one-of-a-kind experience.”

The full Bowdie’s menu includes various items: starters; soups and salads; shareables; entrees, including chicken, salmon and steak; and wine and cocktails.

He said the Gaslight location also will have a private dining section for large groups and events featuring a pre-set menu and personalized service.

Derby Station opened in 2008 and served beer and American-style pub food. Its owners, Larry Zeiser and Brian Giampapa, closed the eatery in July, citing a desire to “move on and let others take part in this vibrant community.”
