RüT Bar and Kitchen
Spokane Vegan Restaurant Inspired by the Pacific Northwest.
RÜT (pronounced “root”) opened Spring 2019 in Spokane’s South Hill neighborhood. The Modern American-style Gastropub features vegan and vegetarian comfort food as well as some healthier vegan options, alongside craft cocktails and a curated beer and wine menu. Founders Justin Oliveri and Josh Lorenzen have been a team since their youth, and they profess a devotion to both the food culture and natural beauty of the area. On their days off the duo can usually be found rock climbing or enjoying other activities the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Their passion and connection is reflected in the restaurant itself, which encourages patrons to stay awhile with its modern, plant-filled interior that features thoughtful lighting, natural textures, and paintings by local artist Hazel Miller.
