It’s official: Our downtown location is now open!
The 4,500-square-foot location offers seating for 60 indoors and 20 outdoors and will feature dine-in and to-go options. We are excited to serve the growing number of downtown Grand Rapids residents and visitors.
“Since opening in 1905, my grandfather made it his mission to serve the Grand Rapids community in any way he could. Our first location was on Division Street, in what was known as ‘Little Italy.’ When we needed more room, we moved twice and eventually opened up on 29th Street, which is currently our main location. We always knew we would return to our roots and this second location will allow us to serve the downtown community as we once did 112 years ago.”
-Phil Russo, president of Russo’s International Market
The Fulton Street location opening menu includes gourmet sandwiches, pizza, salads and Italian entrees. Kid-friendly options are also available. Menus were crafted by head chef, John Chisholm.
The Fulton Street location is in addition to our existing 18,000-square-foot store on 29th Street, which was purchased in 1976, and expanded in 2008. The 29th Street location will continue to offer its 45-foot deli case, with more than 300 meats and cheeses from around the world, olives, fresh baked breads, oils, pastas with Russo sauces, their own homemade frozen entrees, a vast selection of craft beer, more than 3,000 wines, kitchenware, and more.

“The Grand Rapids community has been so devoted to our family business throughout the years, and our goal is to continue to serve the community to the best of our ability. We realized the lack of offerings for downtown residents, and want to meet this demand.”
