Downtown Spokane's new " restaurant row " along continues to grow with a new restaurant opening next Spring in the former Agave Latin Bistro space at the corner of Lincoln and Sprague. The new restaurant was originally announced as a business called Burger Lab. But, we now know this new space will still be a burger restaurant with bar to instead be called Knife Burger Bar.
Knife Burger Bar is too open sometime in the Spring of 2015 and will create about 20 new local jobs. The new restaurant is headed up by a well known team of local restaurateurs, including Matt Goodwin, Armando Hurtado, Jon Wells, Joshua Hissong and Skip Hissong. Collectively this group owns 14 companies in the Spokane area.
Design work will be done locally by HDG Hissong + Hurtado Design Group. This is the same group that designed the other restaurants in the new Restaurant Row which currently also include Nudo Ramen House and Fire Artisan Pizza. We're also hearing a rumbling of another new restaurant around the corner in the old Deleon's and a coffee shop in the same block as Knife. Neither of those have been confirmed as of yet.
Knife Burger Bar is described as Spokane's first philanthropic restaurant with a portion of a upcoming Kickstarter campaign being donated, another portion of their sales will also be donated. More info on this is available on their web site which can be found below.
Knife's menu will consist of a selection of specialty burger with several side options. Also, their web site mentions that bacon can be added at no charge, sign me up!
