GF in Grand Rapids! Marie Catrib's

Tommie and I had the great pleasure of spending the Easter holiday with my god-parents in Michigan! The Kalyvas family lives in Ada, Michigan which is right outside Grand Rapids and Tommie took this opportunity to research some GF options in the area. On our way home, we stopped at this wonderful little restaurant called Marie Catrib's.

I was amazed at how nice everyone was! As soon as we walked in an employee met with us and talked to us about the daily specials and the GF options (which is almost everything). The menu is extensive and leans towards the Mediterranean side. The owner is Lebanese and I have to tell you that being of Greek heritage, I was in love with the menu. I ordered the 'Adult Grilled Cheese' which had feta, goat, and cream cheese drizzled with olive oil and cracked pepper with fresh tomatoes and basil. I chose challah bread. YUMMMMMM! Tommie ordered the shoarma (gyros) on GF bread of course and it tasted as good as it smelled. We had some of their wonderful potatoes on the side and the heat supplied was just enough.

I have to say, we will definitely be visiting Marie Catrib's next time we're in town. Here is a link to the restaurant site:

I was so happy that I found this place while I was researching GF in Grand Rapids.

The potatoes were amongst the best-prepared I'd ever tried (and that's coming from a guy who's never met a potato that he didn't love).
