Reserve Wine & Food Now Open for Lunch (M-F)
West Michigan’s award-winning Reserve Wine & Food introduced weekday lunch service, beginning April 1. Lunch hours are 11:30am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday – with Happy Hour beverage and charcuterie offerings from 4-6pm and dinner service beginning at 5pm. Saturday hours remain 4pm-Midnight; the restaurant is closed on Sunday.
Executive Chef Mathew Green is pleased to present a new fresh menu which includes a selection of sandwiches, lunch plates, soups, salads, sides and snacks including a fried perch sandwich, lamb Reuben, French omelet, oxtail tart and chicken Keiser salad with Great Lakes salt-cured smelt dressing. Dinner menu favorites – like pierogis, pork fat fries, heirloom lettuce salad and potato soup – are also available. The lunch menu will change regularly, reflecting the seasonal offerings from the woods, waters and farms of West Michigan and beyond.
“People have been asking us for years to open for lunch so we are very excited to make those people happy,” says Chef Green. “We took our time developing the menu and translating what we do at dinner into a lunch menu. It's a great showcase for our housemade charcuterie, we are featuring our own bacon, sausage, mortadella, ham, and corned lamb brisket. We are having a lot of fun with the menu and I think that is evident in the dining room.”
In 2012, Grand Rapids Magazine recognized Reserve for the “Best Restaurant Wine List” and “Best New American Restaurant” in its annual reader’s poll. In 2011, the restaurant was named a winner of OpenTable’s Diner’s Choice Awards for Top Wine Lists in the United States – one of only two restaurants in Michigan to make the list.
Located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids at 201 Monroe Avenue NW, Reserve Wine & Food offers a world-class menu fully embracing the West Michigan farm-to-table philosophy in an elegant yet casual fine dining setting.
