New eatery, named Wisconsinburger, will open on South Hatch this spring

View Larger Map

This is the kind of restaurant that may do very well in Spokane.

Jeff Nordvall and Laura Paisley plan to open a new restaurant, Wisconsinburger, at 916 S. Hatch St. on Spokane’s South Hill.

They expect to open in March.

The pair formerly started and operated the Lantern Tavern in the South Perry District. They sold that business in 2012.

Wisconsinburger will feature Midwestern menus, including fried cheese curds and butter burgers, Nordvall said.

“We will focus on fresh food and local foods,” he said. “We are not trying to be a fast-food restaurant,” he added.

The restaurant’s décor will feature elements drawn from traditional Midwest bowling alleys, Nordvall said. The service area, with about 1,100 square feet, will hold 35 to 40 seats.

It will serve beer and wine and will be open six days a week to start, closed Sundays.
