Butcher Block Social to Open in Caledonia

Good news, meat lovers! A new restaurant smoking and grilling up all the meats is opening up soon!

The owners of Wildwood Family Farm and Saladino Smoke are joining forces to bring a new restaurant and tap house, Butcher Block Social, to 9900 Cherry Valley Road in Caledonia.

Earlier this week, owners shared an update on progress on the new restaurant, saying,

For the next 5 or so months we plan to take you on a journey as we transform our new building, into Caledonia’s first BBQ and tap house. We are wrapping up the interior design plans, have been awarded our class c liquor license from Caledonia township, and are beginning all of the permitting processes. On behalf of the Heyboers, Saladinos and Witvoets, we can’t wait to serve you.

Small plate charcuterie will be on the menu too. The custom grazing boards will be made with meats, local cheese, and seasonal fresh veggies and fruits from Wildwood Farms and homemade breads, spreads, and jams from local artisans.
The owners say,

Whether ordered dine-in or to-go we promise it will be worth any wait. BBQ is an art perfected by passion, heart, and commitment. This will all shine through immediately when the first bite hits your mouth.

Drinks at Butcher Block Social will include craft beer, bourbon, and wine.
