FOOD BLOTTER: Butcher Bar, Chairs Public House, food trucks and more


There’s lots to catch up on since there was no Food Blotter last week, since it was Thanksgiving and I was in India. For proof, this is what I ate for breakfast on Thanksgiving:

Breakfast in Pondicherry: Samosa, vada, idly, pineapple juice. - LISA WAANANEN

Anyway, back to the Inland Northwest... Last week, Chairs Public House opened its doors at 1305 N. Hamilton.

The River City taproom also opened, at 121 S. Cedar St.

  • River City Brewing

Tomorrow is opening night at Sante’s new Butcher Bar.

It’s also the first-ever food truck rally in downtown Spokane, which makes it worth braving the cold for First Friday.

Two Knights Homebrew in Post Falls is hosting its grand opening this Saturday at 5 pm with a number of local breweries.

In this week’s Entree newsletter, we have news about the beer and wine Revel 77 is adding to their menu. We also have more details from chef Adam Hegsted, who is opening two restaurants in Kendall Yards this coming spring. (He also just launched a Kickstarter campaign, and here’s the Yards Bruncheon menu.)

Exciting news for people who don’t get to Sandpoint much: MickDuff’s has signed on for distribution of their excellent beer down into the Coeur d’Alene, Moscow and Lewiston areas.

This Sunday is the annual Santa breakfast at Madeleine’s. (Call for reservations.)

Morning Sun Bakery is celebrating its one-year anniversary with two weeks of cinnamon roll specials.

Just one week left to contribute to Batch Bakeshop’s Kickstarter campaign. They’re just about halfway to the goal.
