There is certainly  a lot going on, going up and going in at the Trade Center site on the North side of I94 between S. Westnedge Ave and Oakland Dr in Portage.  Along with the signature businesses and hotels, we're going to see completion very soon of one of the next phases in the plans- the first restaurant.

You might have expected some of the 'usual suspects' to move in as we see on Westnedge and W. Main but you'll be surprised that one of the more unique establishments will make a home in this bustling area.  Black Rock Bar & Grill is slated to open in the spring with the first location on this side of the state...the West side...the Best side.  If you've ever been to The Grill House in Allegan, you'll know what makes Black Rock so unique.  Like The Grill House you get to cook your steak yourself but instead of a normal grill it's volcanic rocks at more than 750 degrees according to our friends at MLive.  Check out the whole story HERE.

Now, you might think that grilling your own steak isn't fun but let me tell you something, if we have half as much fun as we've had at The Grill House, this place is going to be hard to get into.
