Chef Hegsted has been hard at work with VP of Tundra Design Group, Jeff Katz, finalizing the design of his dream restaurant, Wood Smoke. Below is the initial blueprint released at the beginning of the May.
As you can imagine there are many specifics that go into designing a restaurant which can lead to a slow, drawn out process. Hegsted’s architect is working with the city of Spokane to make sure all building codes are in compliance and Katz is optimizing the space to fulfill all of Hegsted’s needs.
The blueprint above is not yet final, but a few things are certain; on the main floor, Hegsted will have a full bar, dining space, two restrooms and state-of-the-art kitchen where he’ll work his magic to deliver an exceptional dining experience. What this blueprint doesn’t indicate is the rooftop dining space. Hegsted’s restaurant will have the one and only rooftop bar in Spokane with an exceptional view of downtown and the Spokane River. The team is still deciding whether or not to put a bar on the roof and the number of tables needed.
P.S. Chef Hegsted is opening a second restaurant! “The Yards”, will be located next door to Wood Smoke and serve baked goods, breakfast and lunch. More details to come!
