Suburban take-out eatery closes doors
A suburban take-out eatery with “chef-driven” and “Michigan-inspired” fare has closed.
Co-owners Peter Davidson and Sarah Andro announced the closing of Saburba in Ada, at 7277 Thornapple Dr. SE, in a post on the eatery’s Facebook page today.
Saburba, which opened in 2012, offered a menu of mostly sandwiches, with soups and salads, tacos, ramen and other options.
The eatery began losing money when construction on Ada Drive began earlier this summer, and Thornapple River Drive “became a side street,” the post says.
“We so appreciate the love and support that all of our loyal customers/friends/family/staff have shown us over the years,” the post says. “We tried to make it work....We really did.”
The closure is the latest in a string of local restaurants that have shuttered in recent weeks, including Black Heron Kitchen & Bar on Grand Rapids’ West Side and LINC UP Soul Food Café in Grand Rapids' Madison Square neighborhood..
