Rodina quickly became a Cedar Rapids favorite dining spot upon opening five years ago. Sadly, James Beard Award-nominated chef and owner Samuel Charles has announced the restaurant will only remain open through October. But if you’re quick, there’s still time to enjoy this spot known for Midwest comfort food at its finest. Whether you go with the duck, the housemade pasta or a gorgeous ribeye, it’s a meal to be savored. With a fantastic happy hour and a go-to brunch menu, Rodina is worth a quick visit before it serves its final meal.
