Savory will try to have a patio for more than three months of the year

The restaurant Savory is what’s going into the building at 1314 S. Grand, formerly where Blockbuster Video was.

We meant to run a rendering in our Friday Here’s the Dirt column, which provides the key details on who’s behind it and what they’re planning. We never ran it due to a space shortage. So here it is.

The location doesn’t easily allow for a patio, but the design, shown in the rendering, explains what the goal is. The patio will be in the triangle just east or left of the building. It will butt up against the sidewalk along Grand.

One of Savory’s owners, Steve Herrmann, said the patio will stay open as long as possible with a number of aids, such as trees for a windbreak and a heater.

They hope to open Savory in September.

Credit for the rendering here is Josh Hissong, of Spokane Restaurant Equipment & Design, and Armando Hurtado of Nystrom & Olson architects.
