In an age of fast food, microwavable meals and delivery services, The Sovengard is bringing “slow food” back to Grand Rapids. Originating in Europe, slow food is a movement encouraging individuals and businesses to purchase from local farmers and cook meals in their own kitchens.
Known for its Nordic fare and biergarten (one of Grand Rapid’s coolest outdoor dining spots), The Sovengard has expanded to the storefront upstairs. Before, the main dining area was a bit hidden from the street – but now, it’s front and center on Bridge St.
We hope you weren’t planning to catch up on sleep this weekend. Grand Rapids has so much to do it was hard to narrow our list of favorites.
