  • Picture yourself enjoying a meal in the great outdoors; Ruins added a 20-seat patio this spring.

Chef Tony Brown's landlord thought he was crazy to add a patio at Ruins, the boutique restaurant in the shadow of the Spokane County Courthouse. The space, which previously had been a parking lot for a neighboring bail bonds outfit, now seats 20 people in a trellis-lined spot behind the restaurant.

In addition to serving folks who prefer to sit outside whenever possible during our increasingly hot summers, the patio also provides more seating for a restaurant whose popularity almost always keeps its tables full. Ruins now also has a well-executed and eclectic brunch on the weekends, beginning at 10 am.

Part of the popularity is due to the fact that Brown, who opened the restaurant in 2014, has continually rotated his menu between different styles, ethnic influences and themes over the past year. He expects to continue this effort-intensive practice throughout the summer, then begin changing things up on a monthly basis.
