High Voltage Ice Creamery to open in Spokane Valley

 Gage Lang and his crew have been "killing it" for years with Spokane Valley based Breauxdoo Bakery. It all began awhile ago as a small delivery only business and in October of last year they expanded into their first retail storefront at 14109 E. Sprague #7a in Spokane Valley. Now they're growing once more with a new ice cream shop planned to open soon at another location also in the Valley.

The company has leased space at 15310 E. Marietta Ave. #4 , next to Jump For Joy and nearby the intersection of Marietta & Sullivan. The new space is 3000 square feet and will actually be shared by two businesses, the main being High Voltage Ice Creamery and the other Hells Bakery. Hells will be a wholesale baking space for Breauxdoo's production and commercial kitchen use for food entrepreneurs to produce their products. The name they say is a homage to Chef Gordon Ramsey's Hell's Kitchen.

The ice cream shop, High Voltage Ice Creamery will be open to the public and set to open in early May. The business will create their own small batch ice creams and offer about 20 seats for indoor dining. Also, we're even hearing that popular local artist Godfitti is adding a mural or similar within the space.

We'll be sure to check in again on High Voltage Ice Creamery in the coming weeks, until then follow their progress via their social media pages- Facebook / Instagram

New restaurant, Bowery will open soon in former Garageland space

A little over a year ago, Chef Todd Andrews began an extensive renovation of a space along Riverside in Downtown Spokane, with the goal of opening a new restaurant there. Last used as the now defunct Garageland, the building, which was built in 1914 and needed significant work. But flash forward to today and we're hearing said work is nearing completion and that new restaurant is now just weeks away from becoming a reality.

Located at 230 W. Riverside, the new restaurant will be called Bowery is to open possibly as early as the middle of next month. I'm told they have done what they could to keep the nuance of the historic building that's been home to a number of different businesses in its storied 100+ year history. The space is also in a great location, only a short distance from the University District and nearby some of the east side of Downtown's newest multi-family housing developments.

Chef Andrews tells us by email that Bowery will have a menu serving French inspired Inland Northwest cuisine. "We will have coffee and pastries weekday mornings, brunch on weekends, full-service dinner 7 nights a week". Bowery will also offer beer, wine and cocktails all led by Chef Andrews, a Seattle native who has worked in restaurants in Seattle and New York City.

Architectural work for the new restaurant was done locally by Indigo Diggs Architecture. According to building permit data the renovation project came in at an estimated $200,000. To my knowledge there isn't a website for Bowery just yet but information about the restaurant and their progress can be found on Instagram at
