Churchill's Steakhouse, in downtown Spokane, reopens

Someone suggested Bill Alles name his new steakhouse in Spokane, The "Prime Minister."

The pun was less than accurate for a business that cooked more than prime rib.

But owner Bill Alles liked the idea and eventually the moniker evolved into Churchill's Steakhouse.

Starting this evening, the downtown Spokane restaurant is back in full operation, following a 20-month rebuild from a July 2008 fire that destroyed nearly everything inside the business.

Churchill's. at 165 S. Post, will offer a full menu of steaks, seafoods and desserts.

The restaurant will operate 4 to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 4-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
