About the restaurant
Forty Pearl is a sensory Pure Michigan experience in the heart of Downtown Grand Rapids. Our mission is to showcase Michigan wines and small-batch wineries by pairing them with adventurous bites and sourcing seasonal ingredients locally. We are a collective of Michigan-based winemakers, chefs, storytellers, and characters.

Originally opened by Ed and Robert Brengman as a tasting room to showcase their award-winning wines and bring a taste of Traverse City to Grand Rapids, Forty Pearl has grown to be a neighborhood gem in Grand Rapids.

We’d put Michigan up with the best of ‘em for producing some of the finest wine, cocktails, and food and we strive to showcase this in every glass and plate served. Our restaurant is best suited for adults.

Exactly what you'd expect, but the chicken tenders were the saddest little guys I've ever seen. It's like they took one normal chicken tender and cut it into thirds.
