Sushi and ramen bar opens on Michigan Street
A taste of Japan has rolled onto Michigan Street.
Ginza Sushi & Ramen Bar opened last month at Diamond Place, a $42-million mixed-use development east of Medical Mile in Grand Rapids, next to the Gordon Food Service store.
Its address is 1015 Michigan St. NE.
“As the newest spot in town for modern-centric vibes and authentic Japanese cuisine, we are excited to impress you,” the restaurant says in an Instagram post last month.
Shun Ci Chen is Ginza’s executive chef and co-owner, along with co-owner Dong Wen Wang.
The pair are also are co-owners of Fuji Yama, Sakura and the Downtown Market’s sushi bar.
The restaurant was originally billed as Chidorii Ramen & Sushi Bar, the Business Journal reported in August. Manager Sheri Smith said the owners changed it to Ginza in hopes it would be easier for patrons to pronounce.
In addition to sushi and ramen, Ginza serves poke bowls, hibachi dinners, appetizers, soup and salad.
It is open for lunch and dinner and also offers takeout, catering and online ordering.
Its hours are from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday, noon-11 p.m. Saturday and noon-9 p.m. Sunday.
NAI Wisinski of West Michigan represented the landlord, PK Development Group, as well as the tenant in the lease transaction.
