GRBJ reports that it will be the Asheville, North Carolina-based restaurant chain's 16th location, and its first in the Midwest.

Tupelo Honey Southern Kitchen & Bar will serve brunch, lunch, dinner, along with beer and cocktails.

According to their website,

Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina mountains we call home. Our recipes are simply crafted and made from scratch with responsibly sourced ingredients that bring the best of every season.

Stephen Frabitore, CEO of Tupelo Honey told GRBJ,

“It was easy to fall in love with Grand Rapids, as it has so much going for it: the Grand River, the people, beer city and the fact that it’s the second-largest city in Michigan and growing."

Tupelo Honey downtown Grand Rapids plans to open in Spring 2020.
