Inside the reopening of That Early Bird

"25% is a small amount but its kind of a nice, comfortable progressional step for us we have been safe and contentious during the entire pandemic," owner Sarah Wepman says.

There will only be 10-12 people inside the restaurant eating at a time. They will also be serving food for takeout.

Wepman also owns also Quarantinos across the street from That Early Bird, and The Little Bird in downtown Grand Rapids which is temporarily closed.

That Early Bird will offer its full menu Monday through Friday from 7am to 4pm and from 4pm to 8om have a Little Bird burger pop-up.
