Later this year the South Hill's Manito Tap House will have a new sister restaurant. And, while this new restaurant will have some similarities to Manito, it will be a totally different establishment.
This new place will be called The Blackbird and will be opening soon, north of Downtown Spokane on the first floor of the historic Broadview Dairy building. The Blackbird's address will be 905 N. Washington St. #100. The location will also be convenient as it is only a couple of blocks east of the Spokane Arena, helping it to possibly score some business from the events there.
Here is The Blackbird's logo-
The Blackbird will serve an gastropub style menu. While we haven't seen a menu we're told The Blackbird's menu will be a bit more upscale then the menu at Manito Tap House. The new restaurant will have a wood fired grill and smoker.
Also, The Blackbird will have a full bar and a good sized beer and wine selection. There will be 4 wines on draft, 34 beers on tap and 150 - 200 bottled beers.
This new restaurant will seat about 115 inside and 130+ outside with 2 outdoor patios planned.
Work is being done now to prepare The Blackbird for opening. And currently they plan to open in mid-to-late May. In all about 70 - 80 jobs will be created.
