    Panera should be added to this list – one on South Westnedge, one on West Main, and one on the east side of town. Also, B’Wiched Deli & Microcatering is going out of business and should be removed.

      Thanks for the suggestions, but this isn’t a list of restaurants in Kalamazoo. This is a list of restaurants I’ve eaten at in Kalamazoo. The Panera on South Westnedge is actually under the Portage tab. For some reason, I’ve never blogged about the one on Main although I have eaten there. As for B’Wiched, yes they are closed, but I don’t remove links from my list.

    You’ve missed your chance to review McGinnis Landing at 5031 W. Main St. (M-43) in Oshtemo Township’s West Century Center:

      Kind of ironic…I was just thinking this weekend we should go there. Honestly, we did kind of avoid it due to poor recent reviews on Urbanspoon, Yelp, etc. and the lack of a website. We go to the Froyo place next door quite often and always talked about going to McGinnis Landing for lunch then Froyo….hopefully that space doesn’t stay empty long….

    A new restaurant with entertainment, dancing, alcohol, and outdoor service is planned for 2941 Howard St., in Campus Pointe Mall II:

    Santorini’s Island Grill (Greek-inspired cuisine to-go) is coming in January to the Bronco Mall at WMU:
