While it was sad to say goodbye to Osteria Rossa downtown Grand Rapids, it's good to hear a new restaurant is opening up in its place!

After eight years in business, Osteria Rossa, an Italian restaurant, permanently closed in early January 2022, citing "unforseen times" as the reason.

We now know what's replacing it!

Nagoya Hibachi Steak House and Sushi to Replace Osteria Rossa

A new Japanese Hibachi Steak House and Sushi restaurant is opening up at 16 Monroe Center St. downtown Grand Rapids, where Osteria Rossa once sat.

While an exact opening date has yet to be revealed, according to the new restaurant's website, it will open in October.
