Thinking about your New Year’s resolutions? GR|MAG asked its contributors to share something they are looking forward to trying or checking out in Grand Rapids in 2018. Feel free to steal their ideas or share your own in the comments.
Matchbox Diner and Drinks owner and executive chef Eric Chaitin knows the Grand Rapids food scene better than most. Originally from the North Shore of Chicago, he served as the executive chef at Rose’s on Reeds Lake and later at the Watermark Country Club. He’s since snapped up West Michigan favorites like Ottawa Beach Inn in Holland and the dockside Mermaid Bar and Grill in Saugatuck.
