Being waited upon is a treat, especially when it's by a waiter in a restaurant and not a grumpy clown in a makeshift big-top mess hall. Enjoy the company of a friendly food-toter with today's Groupon, which gets you the well-crafted cuisine of The Grille at Watermark on Cascade Road Southeast, FireRock Grille in Caledonia, or Rush Creek Bistro in Grandville. Choose from these two options:
- $20 for $40 worth of dinner fare
- $10 for $20 worth of lunch fare
Voted Best Chef by the readers of Grand Rapids Magazine, Eric Chaitin, executive chef of all three restaurants, oversees an edible empire emphasizing creativity and customer service. Take your taste buds on a dream date to The Grille and ponder its sophisticated menu, which entices eaters with wood-fired pizzas, hearty pastas, and meaty marvels such as a Wagyu New York strip ($18.95). Rush Creek Bistro's menu slays cravings with an eclectic assortment of sandwiches and rib-sticking entrees, while the menu at FireRock Grille includes shrimp ($9.95) and steak ($15.95) that can be cooked on a 500-degree FireRock like those used by Stone Age tailgaters before the first Super Bowl. Each menu changes seasonally, accentuating locally grown, seasonal produce and fresh meats. All three locations feature scenic country-club views, outdoor dining, and bar areas for debating with strangers over which of the Founding Fathers had the nicest singing voice.
