Chef Adam Hegsted closing The Cellar restaurant in Coeur d’Alene

The Cellar at 317 Sherman is closing. The last day for Adam Hegsted’s restaurant in downtown Coeur d’Alene will be Jan. 20.

The Cellar is known for contemporary Pacific Northwest cuisine and an extensive wine list. It’s part of the Eat Good Group of restaurants, which includes Wandering Table, The Yards Bruncheon and Gilded Unicorn in Spokane as well as Eat Good Café in Liberty Lake and Le Catering.

Hegsted bought the longtime restaurant and wine bar in 2014 from Patricia and Tom Power, who own the building. It was built in 1915, stretches nearly 11,000 square feet and is listed for sale for nearly $1.7 million. The couple plans to sell the restaurant along with the building “as a package deal,” Hegsted said.

The closure affects about a dozen employees. Hegsted, who lives in Coeur d’Alene, said he will make room for them at his other restaurants “as much as possible.” He called the closure “a hard loss for the middle of downtown.”

But he said, “Hopefully something gets done with (the space).”
