THE WEATHER ISN'T THE ONLY THING THAT'S HOT THESE
SO IS .
THE DOWNTOWN RESTAURANT SCENE WITH SEVERAL NEW EATERIES
KXLY 4'S ALEX LEFRIEC TAKES A LOOK AT SOME OF THE
BEST SPOTS TO CATCH A BITE THIS SUMMER.
Alex Lefriec - Forty years ago expo 74 forever changed
the landscape of downtown Spokane.
Forty years later, it appears the area is ready for
it's second renaissance.
THE GRAND HOTEL SPOKANE IS SLOWLY RISING WHERE A PARKING
LOT ONCE STOOD AND A PROPOSED 60 MILLION DOLLAR RENOVATION
OF RIVERFRONT PARK WILL SOON BE ON THE BALLOT.
BUT THERE ARE ALSO DOZENS OF NEW RESTAURANTS DOTTING
JOSH BLAIR IS OPENING 24 TAPS, A SPORTS BAR MEETS
TAPROOM CONCEPT IN THE OLD HEROS AND LEGENDS SPACE.
We're really going to focus on that Spokane style
Bringing in No-Li, a lot of local beers so it's really
great to have those good local brews to bring in.
JUST SOUTH BURGER LAB WILL GRACE THE OLD AGAVE LATIN
BISTRO SPACE AND ACROSS THE RIVER VERACI PIZZA IS
MOVING INTO KENDALL YARDS.
it's the new up and coming place in Spokane
SETH AND WIFE LAURA STARTED VERACI AS A FOOD CART
3 YEARS AGO AND DUE TO DEMAND, DECIDED TO OPEN A FULL
THEY FEATURE A NEAPOLITAN STYLE THIN CRUST PIZZA AND
AN OVEN THAT WOULD MAKE MARTHA STEWART JEALOUS.
YA, 90 SECONDS.
The longest part is making them and then once their
in their out almost immediately.
PERHAPS THE ONLY THING MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE OVEN,
IS THE VIEW.
It's one of the best patios in Spokane in my opinion.
Veraci Pizza hopes to open just next week while 24
Taps hopes to open it's doors in mid-August.
Either way it should be a delicious Summer.
