Park Lodge adds lunch, happy hour and tasting menus
Park Lodge is now open for lunch.
Plus, the newer Kendall Yards restaurant has also launched three-course and six-course tasting menus as well as happy-hour pricing from 4 to 5 p.m.
Park Lodge has offered a cocktail hour since opening in spring. But drinks were offered at their regular price points. Now, happy hour features $5 wells, $6 glasses of red or white wine and a dollar off draft beer. A couple of cocktails – the Kalimotxo and Porto Tonico right now – are $6
Park Lodge has also added lunch service from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Nov. 5 was the launch for both lunch and happy hour.
The new lunch menu includes starters such as calamari, lamb meat balls, Brussels sprouts and steamed Manila clams. There’s also an array of soups, salads and sandwiches, including the Park Lodge Smash Burger with onion-bacon jam, arugula, Gruyere and green peppercorn aioli on a pretzel bun.
Plates are duck confit carbonara, roast chicken breast and the restaurant’s popular seven vegetable tagine. Desserts are pumpkin spice creme brulee and baklava.
The three-course tasting menu is $40, or $65 with a wine pairing. And the six-course tasting menu is $90, or $130 with a wine pairing.
Park Lodge opened in April. Philip Stanton is the chef and owner. He specializes in locally inspired comfort food with a Mediterranean influence.
“The menu is reflective of what comfort food means to me,” Stanton told The Spokesman-Review when he opened his restaurant earlier this year. “This is me in my comfort zone.”
Stanton, a 2004 graduate of St. George’s School in Spokane, worked for nearly three years as the sous chef at Italia Trattoria in Browne’s Addition while planning and searching for a location for his own eatery.
He attended the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco then spent about three years in the greater Los Angeles area and another three years in Portland before returning to Spokane.
Park Lodge is at 411 N. Nettleton St.
