Fire engulfs the Shogun restaurant in downtown Spokane early on the morning of April 22, 2018. 

More than a year after a fire destroyed the Shogun restaurant on the east end of downtown Spokane, the business has made its return.

The Shogun reopened in Spokane Valley on Monday. Its new home is in a building at 20 N. Raymond Rd., which used to be the Roadhouse Bar & Grill.

The restaurant first opened on E. 3rd Ave. in downtown Spokane in 1992. For decades, many celebrated birthdays, super bowls and other occasions at the hibachi-style Japanese grill.

Flames engulfed the building early on a Sunday morning in April 2018. Firefighters worked to save the business for seven hours, but the Shogun was declared a total loss.
