New restaurant watch...

I know I'll probably miss some but here is a quick review of some of the new restaurants coming to the Spokane area!

Soba Teppenyaki

Now open in the food court of Spokane Valley Mall is a cool new Asian food eatery called Soba Teppenyaki. Menu consists of reasonably priced noodle dishes, ramen and more.

Sams and Coffee

Also now open in Spokane Valley is Sams and Coffee. Albeit a bit hidden Sams occupies a 1600 square foot space at 12709 E. Mirabeau Pkwy for the workers of the surrounding Pinecroft Business Park and the entire community.

Sams menu consists of a few sandwiches and salads in addition to beer and a full espresso line up.

The Grain Shed

Not technically a restaurant it must be mentioned that The Grain Shed is now open in the South Perry district at 1026 E. Newark .

It's an awesome locally owned and operated place that is sort of 2 businesses in one. Culture Breads makes amazing fresh breads each day on the bakery portion and the on site brewery brews up fresh beers. It's a must to check out!

Vessel Coffee Roasters

Also on South Perry, Vessel Coffee Roasters is setting up a new neighborhood coffee shop in the formerly abandoned building at the corner of 11th Ave and Pittsburg. This is the same Vessel Coffee that is already operating a shop on N. Monroe.

Dinardi's Pizza and Pasta

We've been hearing rave reviews already coming from Spokane's newest pizza shop, Dinardi's. Located in the same building as Bruchi's at 829 E. Boone , nearby Gonzaga this new restaurant serves up fresh pizzas, Stromboli, calzones, heros, wings, wraps and more.

Austin Live Fire BBQ

Not too much is known yet but we do know that the owner of Mizuna is working on opening a second restaurant in the Downtown area. This time it will be a new BBQ place called Austin Live Fire BBQ and is coming as early as next month to 421 W. Main.

River City Pizza

River City Pizza is already a cool local pizza joint serving Otis Orchards, but it looks like they are branching out and will soon open a new second location to serve Newman Lake. Work / licensing is in the works for this new River City Pizza at 12515 N. Newman Lake Rd.

Heritage Bar & Kitchen

We mentioned this one on this blog sometime ago but wanted to re-mention as it is now officially open for business. Heritage Bar & Kitchen is in Downtown Spokane at 122 S. Monroe and is a full bar with food menu of burgers and some pub fare.

Heritage even has a drink menu of drinks named after local media icons like the Tom Sherry ( choice of flavored vodka, soda, splash of tonic & a lemon twist ) or the Robyn Nance ( Hornitos Tequila, sweet & sour, lots of lime & a float of grand mariner ). And, a few others, funny I don't see any drinks named after your friendly local blogging media members though.... ( just sayin' ;) )
