Bullman's Pizza

NEW PIZZA PLACE PLUS NEW CAFE

If you find yourself wanting to do the whole "grab a bite and catch a flick" thing, a new Montana-based pizza place opened across from Regal Cinemas in Coeur d'Alene's Village at Riverstone shopping center.

Bullman's Wood Fired Pizza, located at 2385 N. Old Mill Loop, opened last month as the first Bullman's in Idaho. The family-owned restaurant first opened in Helena in 2006, and then added two more locations in Montana.

Everything at Bullman's is made from scratch and a freezer doesn't even exist on the premises, says general manager Cindy Helgren.

Since the Montana locations serve Montana beer, the Coeur d'Alene spot carries Idaho favorites such as Laughing Dog, Grand Teton and Wallace. As for the menu, you'll find pizzas like the Bear Tooth with sausage, mushroom, green pepper and Gorgonzola along with the Bitterroot topped with pistachios, red onion, rosemary, olive oil and sea salt.

Over in Spokane, a new café was also started up last month by chef Jamie Lombardi (formerly of Huckleberry's 9th Street Bistro, Klink's Resort and Seasons Café). Flavor Café, in the Tapio Office Center at 104 S. Freya St. Suite 109, serves Roast House coffee along with lunch items like wraps and panini.

You can also get some of Lombardi's scratch-made granola — dark chocolate quinoa or honey cinnamon coconut — and there are daily specials on sandwiches and drinks happening each day.

Lombardi also just extended her hours and is now open an hour later from 7 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday.

DON'T FEAR THE ALLERGIES

If you're a parent and you shudder at the mention of gluten, lactose or nuts because your child has a food allergy, Liz Williams is coming to help. Williams, an early childhood trainer and consultant, will be at Pilgrim's Market in Coeur d'Alene on Saturday at 2 pm talking about providing a safe environment for children with food allergies. When people find out they or someone they love has a food allergy, it can be overwhelming. Williams will address how to deal with that and how to eliminate the fear that comes with it. Gluten-free food samples from Namaste Foods, a local 100-percent allergen-free company, and recipe ideas will be available. RSVP by Friday so Pilgrim's Market doesn't run out of samples (208-676-9730). Cost to attend is $15 per person.

SCOUT CLOSES

Scout Tavern — a downtown spot for not just food and drinks, but also trivia nights and slam poetry — served its last bunch of customers on June 2 and was officially closed the next day. The closing of Scout follows the closing of Catacombs Pub last month. Both restaurants were located inside the Montvale Hotel building and owned by Montvale owner Rob Brewster, who filed for bankruptcy protection for the building earlier this year.

Red Rooster Coffee Co.

1718 N. Hamilton St.
321-7935

When Red Rooster Coffee Co. reopened last week with an "Opening Open Mic of Openness," Amanda Maule took to the stage to recite her wedding vows in front of 15 or so strangers, in a tiny house, with her husband working behind the counter. As the cafe's manager, it's obvious Maule is passionate about the Rooster.

After Red Rooster closed down, Maule's husband Gabe Ehrnwald approached the owner and offered his assistance in its reopening. Together, the husband and wife run the coffee shop that they hope will moonlight as a hub of creativity and expression.

Also a drive-through, Red Rooster is located in a rustic country house on Hamilton Street. Framed coffee bags from around the world line the walls and the furniture looks as if it was taken from your grandma's place. Maule wakes up early every morning and bakes everything from scratch. No machines are involved in the menu of quiche, soup, and various baked goods like apple cinnamon muffins. more...

Baja Mexican Restaurant

116 S. Lefevre St., Medical Lake
299-2875

Word on Lefevre Street in Medical Lake is that Baja Mexican Restaurant has some humongous burritos. It does. But one look at its equally humongous five-page menu will show that there's quite a bit more — from cheese nachos ($5.50) and fajita quesadilla ($9.50) appetizers to standard entrées like carne asada ($12.75) and smaller combination plates that place tamales, enchiladas, chimichangas, burritos and tacos side by side ($9.25-$12.95).

Then there are some not-so-run-of-the-mill menu entries like the massive Vegi-Macho Burrito, stuffed with mushrooms, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, baby corn and white rice, or the seemingly misplaced steak and lobster with a side of fries ($25).

No word on how many — or with what frequency — people order the lobster, but every customer gets a basket of tortilla chips, a spicy bowl of tomato salsa and a slightly cooler bowl of shredded-cabbage-and-cilantro salsa. more...
