Biscuit Wizard has streamlined its biscuit offerings and beefed up its burger selection.

The casual walk-up-counter eatery in Saranac Commons opened last summer with a biscuit-centered menu. Friday, the casual eatery unveiled its new line-up: four of its most popular biscuits, plus its weekly-changing Wizardry Burger special and four other new burgers.

On Twitter Feb. 9, chef and owner Jeremy Hansen announced the “big menu changes,” saying, “Biscuits are delicious but burgers are better with beer.”

Black Label Brewing Co. is also located in the Saranac Commons building. Biscuit Wizard is teaming up with the brewery to offer dinner specials, one of the advantages of the new burger-and-sandwich-forward menu.

Kaiser buns come from Hansen’s Common Crumb Artisan Bakery, also located in the building. The ketchup is made at Hansen’s flagship restaurant, Sante, located just down the street.

Burgers are: the Home Brewer, with a 5-ounce Black Label bratwurst patty, parsley and hopped maple gravy; Kryngshame Katsu with a 5-ounce chicken sausage patty, pickled veggies, greens and hog sauce; Vladimir Poutine with a 6-ounce beef patty, fries, cheese curds, brown gravy and greens; and a double-bacon cheeseburger with 12 ounces of beef, cheddar and aioli.

Remaining biscuits are: the S.O.S. with biscuits and sausage gravy; the Chupacabra with Mexican chorizo with mole sauce; the Murtopia with rum barrel-aged maple-and-sage sausage with cheese curds and bacon gravy; and the Big Le Biscuit, inspired by the 1998 movie “The Big Lebowski,” with bacon, bacon confit, White Russian gravy, sausage, egg and Kahlua sauce.

Biscuit Wizard opened last July. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Other menu items are: Sante sausages – Black Label bratwurst, kielbasa, linguisa – on a bun, garlic truffle fries, poutine, breakfast sandwiches, take-home packs of biscuits, and sandwiches. Look for the Dark Lord with roast beef, Swiss and blueberry mustard; the Grilled Wiz with bacon, smoked provolone, apple and greens; and the Vegetable Incantation with peppers, onion, greens aioli, cilantro pesto and provolone.

Hansen and wife Kate own and operate Biscuit Wizard, Sante, Common Crumb, Inland Pacific Kitchen and Hogwash Whiskey Den, all in downtown Spokane. They’re also preparing to open the Ridpath Brasserie and Gin Bar, also downtown.

Biscuit Wizard is at 19 W. Main Ave. Call (509) 290-5927.
