With new restrictions on indoor dining starting a few weeks back, restaurants across Spokane County have been dialing in their takeout game to invite their fans in to support them. And it’s no different at Wooden City Spokane, except that they had barely settled in after a late summer opening when Washington’s four-week dine-in shutdown hit. Without a large patio space to safely seat customers outdoors, the past few weeks have hit the restaurant hard, says co-owner Jon Green.
To encourage guests to try its menu of casual American dishes with a bit of French and Italian influences, all crafted with a careful attention to detail, Wooden City tweaked its to-go menu to highlight dishes that travel better. For now, pasta-focused entrees are gone in favor of woodfired pizzas (try the bacon pesto with white sauce, gorgonzola, red onion and aged balsamic) and several sandwiches, among them the must-try “Fancy” burger with mushrooms, onion jam, garlic aioli and aged balsamic, as well as a fried chicken and a chicken parm. Wooden City’s famous stuffed Hungarian waxed peppers (pictured above) also remain on the takeout menu. A wide variety of pre-mixed cocktails include a 32-ounce bottle of its draft old fashioned (about 10 drinks!).
Online ordering has been implemented to make grabbing dinner to-go as easy as possible; Wooden City is currently open daily for takeout from 4 to 8 pm. Order at woodencityspokane.com.
