Greek eats in Grand Rapids

I'm frequently in Grand Rapids, and wondered if there are any good Greek restaurants in GR. I know there are a couple of restaurants with Middle Eastern food -- i.e., Marie Catribs -- but I'm really looking for Greek food. A grocery store carrying Greek items -- esp. Greek olive oil, olives, cheeses -- would be wonderful too. I have such easy access to Greek food here in the Chicago area, and would like to take my GR relatives out for Greek in GR. Being all from Chicago, it's something they miss.

Looking for Doughnuts In Michigan - Several Cities

Try Robinette's Apple Barn on 4 Mile Road, just west of the East Beltline. They make wonderful cinnamon sugar doughnuts all year, and should now be making pumpkin spice ones. A bonus -- the fresh cider from their own apples.

ReLo to Grand Rapids, MI

I've visited GR often in the last 20 years, and agree that the restaurant scene has really improved. Last month I had a great lunch at the Green Well Gastro Pub on Cherry -- lovely mussels, and my companion had their mac & cheese, which was incredible. I've also had good meals at San Chez, Rose's on Reed's Lake, Blue Water Grill, Bistro Bella Vita, Tuscan Express, Marco's Bistro, and Leo's. For family dining, try Olga's Kitchen in East Grand Rapids. Love the vegetable soup, and the salmon sandwich was wonderful. Oh -- for many years we went to Pietro's -- still like it, and it's family friendly.
