New Peruvian and Mexican Restaurant Opens on 28th Street in Grand Rapids
Upscale restaurant, Rio Peruvian and Mexican Cuisine, is open at 69 28th St. SW as of August 17, 2023.
Crain's Grand Rapids reports that Andy Rosario, who also owns Maya Mexican Grill and Bar on 28th St., bought the building a year and a half ago for $375,000.
Since then he has been transforming it into the new restaurant. Rio seats 279 people. Here's a look inside:
Rosario tells Crain's,
We need something new in the community. I feel like everybody wanted to open a Mexican restaurant, but there’s more to offer than Mexican food. I feel like Peruvian food can be more creative.
