Burgundy’s gets a new look

The restaurant at the Spokane Club has a new look.

Soon, it will also be getting a new name.

Burgundy’s, the restaurant in the private club, reopened in early November after a two-month closure.

Gone, now, are the salad bar, raised booths and white tablecloths. Gone also is the burgundy, harvest gold and green color scheme.

The new color palette features neutral tones accented by red (throw pillows) and houndstooth (bench backs) in a newly created nook lined with black-and-white-photos of members. There are new tables, chairs, light fixtures and large, flat screen TVs, too.

The adjacent bar is slated to get a facelift in January, when a new name will be chosen from members’ suggestions.

Executive chef Aaron Crumbaugh and Michael Melone, food and beverage director, helped redesign the space, which gained seven additional seats in the reconfiguration.

The restaurant holds 80, plus another 10 in the private dining room, 40 in the bar and 30 on the patio.

The newly renovated restaurant also features a new, streamlined the menu with a “gastropub theme,”  Crumbaugh said.

Look for salads, pizza, hand-helds and dinner entrees such as Wagyu ribeye, Wagyu flank tagliata and cedar plank steelhead.

Burgundy’s had been slated to be remodeled in early 2017. Work was moved up after a plumbing emergency flooded the dining room in August.

Founded in 1890, the Spokane Club is a membership organization with athletic, dining and other amenities in downtown Spokane and Spokane Valley. Call (509) 838-8511.
