ROCKFORD, Mich.—Final rounds of training are underway at the newest restaurant opening in Rockford.
Ramona’s Table will welcome its first guests Aug. 1, beginning at 11 a.m. The restaurant is located at the corner of Squire and Bridge, which was formerly the home of A Charmed Life boutique. The building dates back a century, when it used to be a grain elevator and the White Pine Trail was a thoroughfare for cargo-laden trains.
Construction workers have been working on renovating the space since January. The restaurant
pays homage to the building’s history, with the original beams, wood floors and parts of the pulley wheel on display. Owner Jackie Ziehm says the restaurant also features a three-story atrium with skylight, as well as seating for 92 people inside and 70 people on an outdoor patio.
