Press Release – Angel’s Thai Cafe Opening in Grand Rapids

November 30, 2009

From a press release….

Grand Rapids, MI – The much awaited Angel’s Thai Café will open its doors at 136 Monroe Center this Friday, December 4 at 12:30 p.m. Business owners Lang and Julie Lee invite the public to its grand opening, where Mayor George Heartwell will officiate at the celebration with a ribbon cutting followed by food sampling. Following the event, the restaurant will open at 2 p.m. for regular business.

The Lees are seasoned restaurateurs, and recently relinquished their partnership in the Thai Express restaurants in Southfield and Detroit’s Greek Town in order to move to Grand Rapids and open a new restaurant. During the past few months the space has been completely renovated to serve the public well, both logistically and aesthetically.
Why Grand Rapids? Julie Lee has been watching Grand Rapids for several years. “I feel that Grand Rapids is the next up-and-coming metropolitan city. People here are really, really friendly, helpful, and resourceful.” The business incentives for the building renovation and signage were also a plus. Mai is very enthusiastic about Downtown events as well. “I feel they are very well organized and something I can benefit from.” Being directly across from Rosa Parks Circle is a definite advantage.

Then there is the food. Angel’s Thai Café will accommodate a wide range of Thai food lovers. The restaurant will have “really traditional” Thai cuisine, as well as the newer “fusion” style. For customers not well-versed in Thai food, Julie will be a personal consultant, going through the list of sauces in order to best match your tastes. And a “Create your own dish” option is also on the menu. While Julie will guide you on selection, Lang and her brother, Junior, are the chefs that will create it. Says Julie: “So far I have never had a customer walk out without being happy.”

Hours: Mon. – Thurs. 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., Fri. 11 a.m. – 3 a.m., Sat. 12 p.m. – 3 a.m., Sun. 12 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Phone: (616) 454-9801
