Azar's was a well-known restaurant serving a menu of Greek and Middle Eastern dishes for 42 years from a building on N. Monroe St. in Spokane. However, the eatery closed for good this past weekend, with the owner now focusing on a real estate career. But the building at 2501 N. Monroe won't sit empty for very long, with a new restaurant planned to be welcoming diners once again by the end of the year, if all goes as planned.
A new locally owned and operated sandwich shop, called Zozo's Sandwich House is planning on taking over the space. They plan to do some upgrades to the building and add new decor before opening for business, likely sometime in December.
The concept of Zozo's will be a little different than most other similar establishments in the area. They tell me they plan to smoke and/or roast most of their meats including turkey, chicken, pork and a variety of cuts of beef. Some east coast style sandwiches will also be included on the menu like Italian roast pork and a variety of chicken and pork cutlet sandwiches, including a Cuban that they say will include a "twist that everyone will love". House made dips a jus will also be available.
In addition to a menu packed full of different sandwiches, Zozo's will also offer up a verity of smash burgers, healthy salad options, scratch made soups and homemade sides like a pickle pasta salad. Beer and wine as well as Vegan and gluten free options will also be available.
