August 24, 2018

Ruins, the North Monroe Street restaurant that specializes in small plates and ever-changing menus, is slated to appear on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on Sept. 21.

Filming took place in June.

Ruins is owned by chef Tony Brown, who’s in the process of opening a second restaurant, Eyvind, in downtown Spokane. Meantime, Ruins offers themed menus that change frequently as well as its popular McRuins night on Mondays, featuring its own takes on fast-food specialties.

The episode description – for season 29, episode one, dubbed “From Pork to Pasta” – mentions “a local joint with killer culinary, like carnitas fries and a twist on gnocchi.”

Also in that episode, Fieri features Italian fare in Chicago and “an authentic Hong Kong barbecue.”

It’s schedule to air at 9 p.m. Sept. 21 on Food Network.

A Spokane food truck is slated to appear on the season’s second episode, titled “Sandwiches, Southern and South of the Border.”

That show, scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Sept. 28, features “a lights-out food truck smokin’ up real-deal barbecue” in Spokane as well as a Mexican eatery in Ashland, Oregon, and “a fried chicken haven” in Bozeman, Montana.

Ruins and the unnamed food truck – if it’s yours, let us know – join Waddell’s Pub and Grille, which is scheduled to appear on Fieri’s new “Triple D Nation” in mid-September. According to Waddell’s Facebook events page for the viewing party, the brewpub is slated to be featured on the episode airing on Food Network at 9 p.m. Sept. 14.
