New Pizza, Pasta Restaurant, Myrth to Open in Ada
Chef Paul Berglund, a University of Michigan grad and a Navy veteran, is set to open a new restaurant in West Michigan.
Berglund has been cooking for the past two decades, most notably as the executive chef of The Bachelor Farmer in Minneapolis, where he was awarded the 2016 James Beard Award for Best Chef in the Midwest.
The new restaurant is called Myrth and is located at 7423 River St. SE in Ada.
Berglund lives in Ada with his wife, son, and dog.
A post to Facebook shares,
Though his career path has taken him away from pizza and pasta in recent years, they are the first foods he mastered as a young chef and the ones he has been dreaming about ever since. He can't wait to fire up the wood oven and get back to the foods he loves most!
