One of my favorite restaurants in Grand Rapids is Chez Olga.
Chez Olga is a labor of love for owner Olga Benoit, who has owned and operated the restaurant, at 1441 Wealthy St. SE, since 2010. When you visit, you will find Olga in the kitchen, but no matter how busy she is, she always makes time to visit the dining room and welcome regulars and newbies alike.
This is not the place to dine if you are in a hurry. As mentioned, Benoit is joyfully preparing the dishes and it can take a bit of time so plan on a longer evening — and bring your own wine.
My two favorite dishes here are the Creole tofu and the potato lasagna, but you can’t go wrong with any item on the menu. The restaurant has been operating as take-out only due to COVID-19.
