MacKenzie River Pizza will open its downtown eatery next wek

It's roughly a week before MacKenzie River Pizza opens its downtown food location in the Lincoln Plaza Building, at Lincoln and Riverside.

It's taking the spot last used by Ciao Mambo. Both brands are part of the Glacier Restaurant Group based in Whitefish, Mont.

Workers this week were completing the move-in of the industrial pizza ovens.

No exact opening date has been announced. If you know the date, leave a message here.

Ciao Mambo restaurant downtown closes, looks to morph into pizza place

Spokane's downtown Ciao Mambo restaurant, 818 W. Riverside, is saying arrivederci, and plans to morph into a MacKenzie River Pizza operation.

The restaurant opened its doors in March 2011. It closed on July 30.

Plans for the transition are being reviewed by parent company Glacier Restaurant Group, out of Whitefish, Mont.

Its now-defunct Facebook page had said the goal was to reopen as a MacKenzie Pizza within a few months.

Notably, the Ciao Mambo ended up in a main level part of the building previously used by a Washington Mutual Bank branch, in the Lincoln Plaza Building. That bank's implosion made the space available for the restaurant.

More details on the next food operation in the former Ciao Mambo will appear in next week's Spokesman-Review food section.

Ciao Mambo opens its doors Monday, in downtown Spokane

Spokane's new downtown Ciao Mambo restaurant opens its doors to the public on Monday.

Dinner hours start at 4 p.m. until close. It's open seven days a week.

This is Spokane's first Ciao Mambo. Ciao Mambo is a network of restaurants managed by  Whitefish, Mont.-based Glacier Restaurant Group.

Here's a photo taken during recent last-finishing touchups of the interior. The space, 818 W. Riverside, was formerly used by Washington Mutual Bank, and we have a feeling Ciao Mambo will turn out a little better than WaMu did.

In May the restaurant will offer lunch service, said Jim Elkins and Brad Townsend, company managers for Glacier Restaurant Group.
