Suburban pub closes doors
An 11-year-old pub in the area has closed.
Owners Larry Zeiser and Brian Giampapa, of the Grand Rapids-based restaurant group L&B Portfolio, last week closed Derby Station in East Grand Rapids, at 2237 Wealthy St. SE.
“We appreciate all the patronage over the last 10-plus years, but felt it was time to move on and let others take part in this vibrant community. Thanks again — Derby Station,” says a notice posted at the entrance.
The owners and the landlord, Grand Rapids-based CWD Real Estate Investment, did not immediately return calls for comment.
Interim City Manager Doug LaFave declined to comment on the closing.
The restaurant opened in 2008 and served a large, rotating menu of beers on tap, as well as “fun, fresh and local” American-style pub food.
L&B Portfolio also owns Logan’s Alley.
