GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) ꟷ A new family restaurant is bringing its first taste of Kurdish-style Mediterranean cuisine to the downtown Grand Rapids market.

Miro’s Coffee opened its second location inside the market this week, about six months later than originally planned. A spokesperson for downtown market said the project encountered the same construction, labor and material challenges as other projects during the pandemic.

Cafe de Miro’s menu includes favorites from the original Breton Village mall restaurant, as well as bowls, wraps, gyros, falafel, baba ghanoush, eggplant shakshuka, paninis, acai bowls and Turkish coffee.

The owners’ son, Botan Alagoz, will manage the new location.

“We want to offer customers the opportunity to try recipes that our family has enjoyed for years,” Botan said in a press release. “Our menu at the market will do just that while complementing our current offerings.”

“It’s wonderful to bring a style of cuisine that has not yet existed in the Halle du Marché since the opening of our doors eight years ago. Cafe de Miro will certainly fit this bill, and we’re sure customers will embrace this addition,” Mimi Fritz, President and CEO of Downtown Market, said in the press release.

Café de Miro will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday. Customers can have their meal in any general dining hall in the market.

The new restaurant is located along the back wall of the Market Hall, in the space that previously housed Bliss & Vinegar. In April, Bliss & Vinegar announced it would not be renewing its lease at Downtown Market after it was hit “particularly hard” by the pandemic. Bliss & Vinegar’s Forest Hills location remains open.
