Get ready for some Biscuit Wizard-ry
Chef Jeremy Hansen’s latest eatery, Biscuit Wizard, is slated to open in early to mid July in downtown Spokane.
The casual-style eatery with a walk-up counter will specialize in buttermilk biscuit sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“It’s going to be pretty cool,” Hansen said. “We want to do everything scratch-made and do it really well, but just make it fun.”
To that end, the counter has an edgy look, with spray-painted, street-style art decorating the counter. Hearty biscuit sammies will be in the $8 to $12 range. Look for The Wizard, a rotating weekly special, for $10.
Look, also, for the Chupacabra with Mexican chorizo with mole sauce and the Murtopia with rum barrel-aged maple-and-sage sausage with cheese curds and bacon gravy.
Son of a Biscuit features pork and beans. Good Old Days, inspired by the childhood classic, features American cheese and tomato soup.
The Big Le Biscuit, inspired by the 1998 movie “The Big Lebowski,” is a double-size biscuit with bacon and White Russian gravy. “It’s fun,” Hansen said.
Also fun: the Kryng Shame, named in honor of Simon Moorby, the bar manager at Hansen’s Hogwash Whiskey Den. His Instagram handle is “kryngshame.” His biscuit features fried chicken-apple sausage and apple-brandy mascarpone.
On the smaller side, there’s the Little B: a biscuit with butter and jam for $4.25. Four packs of biscuits will be available to go for $6.
The also menu includes a soup of the day and rotating panini as well as three vegan salads: ancient grain, romaine, and kale with berries and balsamic. Of course, there’s always the option to add a side of sausage for $4, Hansen said.
Sausage will come from Sante Restauarant and Charcuterie, his first downtown establishment with his wife and business partner, Kate. Croissants and biscuits will come from Common Crumb Artisan Bakery, also owned by the Hansens and located in Saranac Commons. They also own Inland Pacific Kitchen in the old Washington Cracker Co. building.
Biscuit Wizard will be located at 19 W. Main Ave.
Hours are slated for 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 9 or 10 p.m. on weekends. “If it’s busy, we’ll stay open longer,” Hansen said.
Specialty breakfast items – croissant sandwiches, eggs, bacon – will be served from 7 to 11 a.m. daily.
