Kalamazoo 's newest barbecue restaurant, Kelvin & Co., will offer fresh meat smoked daily, handcrafted sides and homemade sauces; doors will open by the end of March.

The husband and wife team of Mark and Kassidy Nieuwenhuis have been working hard on making their dream come true, remodeling the former Main Street Cafe at 232 E. Michigan Ave. Calling it a "fast service BBQ restaurant" downtown diners will be able to grab a quick bite during a short lunch break or order smoked meat by the pound. Homemade sauces and sides will spice up the menu.

As someone who looks forward to Kalamazoo Ribfest every year, I can't wait to grab a bib and get into this place! Take a look at the Nieuwenhuis' pictures of the remodeling and you can bet we'll let you know when we get an official opening date for Kelvin & Co.
