Ridpath Brasserie

and Gin Bar

This forthcoming restaurant and bar is hiring.

Restaurateurs Jeremy and Kate Hansen are looking for some 37 staff members – from morning and evening line cooks to servers and sous chefs.

The Hansens are planning to open Ridpath Brasserie and Gin Bar as early as April 1. (Previous names for the bar included Octopus Gin and Papa’s Lover.)

The menu is still being determined, but the Hansens plan to offer the same items and entrees all day long. Early on, Jeremy Hansen said the menu would focus on French classics, such as escargots, steak and frites, foie gras and boeuf bourguignon.

Plans also call for the establishment to be open from 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. daily.

Meantime, résumés are being accepted between 1 and 4 p.m. daily at the couple’s flagship restaurant, Santé Restaurant and Charcuterie, at 19 W. Main Ave. Ridpath Brasserie and Gin Bar is slated to open in the old Ridpath Hotel, which is being developed into apartments.

‘Just Eat It’

The Spokane Edible Tree Project and the Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County are presenting a screening and panel discussion of “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story” on Tuesday.

The documentary follows filmmakers Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin as they aim to survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. It also follows them as they talk with farmers, retailers and community organizers to explore causes and impacts of food waste.

The post-film discussion will feature representatives of food recovery and hunger relief programs, including Feed Spokane, Catholic Charities Food For All and Spokane Edible Tree Project.

The film starts at 7 p.m. The panel discussion begins at 8:30 p.m. There’s a suggested donation of $5 to benefit the Spokane Edible Tree Project. The event is at the Community Building, 35 W. Main Ave.
