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.

The South Hill former Blockbuster building, at 1318 S. Grand, has been closed for 14 months. See the closing announcement.
A local group planned to move a restaurant called Savory into that building. Then the project stalled due to unexpected issues, including remodeling costs.
There’s still some action related to that project and we expect some resolution will be announced before the end of the summer. If anyone wants to add more information on this project, please comment here or e-mail us, at Business@spokesman.com.
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.
