Sandy Point Beach House restaurant coming to Grand Rapids –

Restaurant News

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Sandy Point Beach House, a restaurant in West Olive, is opening a second location in Grand Rapids.

Geoff Gaskin, president of CDKI Holdings, said he plans on Feb. 1 to close his restaurant, Zoko822, located at 822 Ottawa Ave. NW, and reopen the space by the second week of February as Sandy Point Beach House GR.

He said he plans, at some point this year, to reopen Zoko822 at 2130 Plainfield Ave. NE. Zoko822 is a Spanish tapas and gin bar that opened in December 2017.

Sandy Point Beach House GR’s menu will feature items such as burgers, halibut, steak and frites, roasted chicken and mussels. The restaurant has seating for 99 people and an outdoor patio with space for 100 people, Gaskin said.

“Bringing Sandy Point Beach House’s standard of Live Jazz Thursdays, Easy Listening Music Fridays, and our renowned Reggae Saturdays to the new Grand Rapids location this summer should make for a great time,” Gaskin said.

Gaskin said he thinks Sandy Point Beach House Grand Rapids will be a better fit for the 822 Ottawa Ave. NW location than Zoko 822. That’s in part because Sandy Point’s menu and atmosphere will better complement Street Eats GR, a food truck court with a full-service bar located at a parking lot adjacent to 822 Ottawa Ave., he said.

In addition to Zoko822 and Sandy Point Beach House, Gaskin’s company, CDKI Dining, also owns MeXo, a Mexican restaurant at 118 Fulton St. E in Grand Rapids.
