When the Benoits moved to Grand Rapids from Haiti in the early '90s, they explored various entrepreneurial ventures before starting their own catering business, which served the sweet and savory creole flavors of their island homeland. As their success began to snowball, they opened The Chez Olga's current location, where bamboo and hardwood finishes make the Caribbean restaurant resemble a jungle castle or the dream treehouse your dad promised to build after Detroit won the 1990 NBA Finals. The eatery's menu unfurls with Haitian specialties that range from 1 to 10 in heat, awakening tasters with its signature plantain sandwich and made-to-order meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes, served alongside spicy coleslaw for an extra kick to the palate. The Benoits look to share the fruits of their success with their foundation to improve education in Haiti, and their inspirational story has snagged the attention of news outlets such as ABC affiliate WZZM 13.
Patricia Kooy?a licensed massage therapist and board-certified HPT and CMMT?has learned a great deal about the body?s inner workings during her 10 years of practice, much of which adds up to a single guiding principle: ?Healing is a process, not an event.? Patricia begins this process with her advanced repertoire of bodywork techniques, which includes targeted manual therapies as well as holistic energy treatments. She understands that each healing journey requires its own combination of methods, so she tailors her techniques to each individual, treating specific ailments such as arthritis and fibromyalgia with medical deep-tissue techniques or connecting chakras with healing-touch therapy. Depending on the technique and her client?s level of tension, Patricia may incorporate essential oils, hot stones, an infrared-heat lamp, or molten lava to help her melt away stresses.
Warm, red and white tortilla chips spill forth from a basket. Slow-cooked black beans are simmered with poblano peppers and blended with spice. Aged colby cheese melts together with tender shredded pork inside a hand-rolled enchilada. Traditional ingredients, house-made with care, fill the inventive dishes at El Barrio Mexican Grill. House-made salsas, sauces, and cheese blends accompany most of the grill’s hearty fare, with deep-fried Tijuana corn dogs diving into dishes of creamy melted queso blanco and avocado-ranch dressing winding around wedges of grilled avocado inside soft flour tortillas. The specialty shredded-pork carnitas fly to tables in salt-rimmed skillets that hearken back to the full bar’s margaritas, adding to the festive, cantina-like atmosphere and spurring discussions about which ocean tastes the saltiest.
At Brandywine's casual eateries, an appealing explosion of framed photos and artwork greets guests as they sit down to their morning breakfast or unwind over a leisurely dinner. Chefs warm up the kitchen in the a.m. by cracking dozens of eggs into veggie-stuffed omelets, eggs benedict, and hearty breakfast burritos stuffed with black beans, fresh cheese, and chorizo. During lunch, patrons can pop in for sandwiches and wraps, including a corned-beef reuben or the Northender wrap?a collection of deli-sliced beef with grilled mushrooms, horseradish mayo, and peppers. For dinner, Brandywine's chefs show off their multicultural influence in dishes that blend Caribbean, Asian, or Greek flavors, including the chili-rubbed Norwegian salmon or fettuccine tossed with saut?ed capers, artichokes, and black olives.
Named one of 60 Restaurants Worth the Trip by Midwest Living magazine, GoJo Ethiopian Cuisine introduces guests to the traditional, community-focused dining style of Ethiopia. Using injera, a soft sourdough flatbread, diners scoop up bites of robustly flavored stew, or watt, from a bed of the same flatbread. Tibs watt, a dish made of sautéed tender beef and spices, and doro watt, a spiced chicken stew, satisfy carnivores, and lentils, collard greens, and green beans take the lead in the vegetarian dishes. The lamb sampler, GoJo's No. 1 seller, consists of well-spiced lamb and smaller sides of spiced beans and other vegetarian dishes.
