Sawtooth Grill not ready to reopen, yet

The blog post on Thursday, about the raft of new restaurants hereabouts, noted we weren’t sure then what the owner of the Sawtooth Grill would do, following closing down on Saturday.

Late in the day we got a call from owner Jim Simonson, who lives in Seattle.
Simonson says he’s looking for another Spokane location, but hasn’t found it yet.

“I want to find a location away from downtown,” he said. Simonson said he’ll keep The SR informed on his plans.

A further note:  our list of new eateries yesterday could have included the new Five Guys Burgers shop, up on 29th, and the the Flying Goat, on Northwest Blvd. There are even more new restaurants apparently in the wings.
