Out with the old and in with the new, that's the case for a Downtown Coeur d' Alene restaurant space. That space is a small storefront at 206 N. 4th about 2 blocks north of Sherman Ave and across the street from the former federal courthouse building. At the end of November the sad news came in to the Inland Northwest Business Watch newsroom of the closure of Scrud's Gourmet Grub. The business had only been open a couple of years but had built a good size following. Scrud's had an extensive menu of burgers that even included some unusual combinations. ... But the space won't stay empty long, and the space's replacement will also be a restaurant specializing in burgers. The new restaurant will be called Schmidty's Burgers , named for the new businesses owners Nathan Schmidt and Denise Hodges/Nils Rosdahl, Business Bits, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
Question: I never ate a burger at Scurd's Gourmet Grub. Did you?
