Work continues to make Kendall Yards in Spokane’s West Central neighborhood a destination for dining. The latest restaurant tenant will be Umi Sushi, in space it will share with the newly opened Maryhill Winery Tasting Room, 1309 W. Summit Parkway.
Improvements to the 2,700-square-foot restaurant shell will run $100,000, according to permits issued by the city.
According to plans, the restaurant will be two floors, with about 1,700 square feet of space on the lower level, which will have patio seating and dining.
The sushi restaurant will join Central Food, Wandering Table, Veraci Pizza and Yards Bruncheon in the growing neighborhood. My Fresh Basket, Craftsman Cellars, Nectar Wine and Beer, Solace Mead and Cider, Paper and Cup, and Brain Freeze Creamery also are located in the development.
Umi Sushi will be run by HLH Food Ventures LLC, of Spokane, which is partly controlled by Scott Hoefer, a radiologist at Inland Imaging, and John Heath III, president and chief operating officer at Washington Trust Bank.
The project’s general contractor is Kilgore Construction, of Colbert. The design is done by Spokane’s Uptic Studios.
