829 E. Boone ( corner of Boone & Hamilton ) is perhaps better known as the 8,000 square foot multi-tenant building that took over the land that was David's Pizza near Gonzaga University. But it's also meant to provide Zags and Spokane's Logan neighborhood with a multitude of dining options.
The building, which is named the Clementine Center was developed by John Stockton and built by locally based Baker Construction. When it was completed a couple of years ago it was full of restaurant tenants, but quickly those numbers have started to dwindle.
Pizza Oven which was in suite A, closed citing a dispute over lack of payment from a general contractor. Noodle Works ( Suite B ) and Loco Dogz ( Suite C ) also closed up shop for unknown reasons ( Loco Dogz also closed their flagship store in Cheney ) . Leaving the new building kind of empty looking.
But all of that is about to change with these new restaurants leasing space in the 829 E. Boone Building-
Joey's Taste of Chicago
Joey's will soon open their third store within the building. The restaurant also has locations at 9222 N. Newport Hwy in North Spokane and in Rathdrum.
The business is growing and gaining a bit of following in it's relatively short life. Joey's Taste of Chicago is a Chicago style hot dog restaurant. They are one of only a small few restaurants in the Inland Northwest using Vienna Beef hot dogs.
In addition to delicious hot dogs, Joey's Taste of Chicago also serves hot Italian Beef and Gyros. A liquor license is also in the works for their new location.

After gaining a name as a Sushi restaurant in Spokane Valley, Sushi Sakai will soon leave the Valley for 829 E. Boone.
Sushi Sakai will close their location at 11520 E. Sprague Ave and relocate to a suite in the this building. Sushi Sakai offers many different sushi rolls and sushi party boats. Bento boxes , some teriyaki and Korean food dishes are also available on the menu for reasonable prices.
Sushi Sakai is also a Sake bar with many brands and flavors available.
While this will be the Sushi Sakai's first venture into the City of Spokane proper, Spokane Valley will not be left without. The business says they also plan to re-open a second location, back in Spokane Valley sometime " within the year ". Exactly when and where is not yet known.

Some original restaurants never left....
While the building at 829 E. Boone has appeared a little empty, it never actually was empty. That's because two of the tenants that moved in when the building was built are still open for business there.
The frozen yogurt chain, Froyo Earth and cheesesteak / sandwich chain Bruchi's also maintain restaurants there serving hungry students and locals alike. Bruchi's did also recently announce they are planning a new location in Downtown Spokane, not too far away but will likely still keep this location.
