Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to Celebrate Grand Opening of MeXo

On July 3rd, 2018, Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss performed a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony at MeXo, a Pre-Hispanic Modern Mexican restaurant that recently opened in Downtown Grand Rapids. The ceremony, which was held at 118 E. Fulton St. in downtown Grand Rapids, marks the official Grand Opening of the restaurant.

Named by combining the words “Mesoamerica” and “Mexico”, MeXo is a fusion of Pre-Hispanic, Mesoamerican culture and modern authentic Mexican cuisine. The restaurant’s unique dining concept is the first of its kind in Grand Rapids. MeXo’s cuisine is complemented with a tequila/mezcal bar that carries an extensive collection of more than a hundred varieties of tequila and mezcal.

MeXo’s parent company, CDKI Dining, is known for its popular West Olive based establishment, Sandy Point Beach House, a casual fine dining restaurant. CDKI Dining also opened Zoko 822 in December of 2017.  Zoko features a small plate collection of recipes that are inspired by the Basque region of Spain and is located at 822 Ottawa Ave. in Grand Rapids.

“Our passion is to build a world-class dining culture here in Grand Rapids,” said Geoff Gaskin, President of CDKI Dining.  

Members of the community and the press are welcomed to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony and to stay and enjoy food and cocktails along with complimentary appetizers.  MeXo’s award-winning chef, Oscar Moreno, will be available to greet guests at the event. Chef Oscar will also be preparing special lunch features for the celebration.
