Meet Your Chef Feature from the Inlander
Check out an awesome little feature in the Inlander about Matt – “Meet Your Chef”. While it’s not what we set out to do, it’s always nice to get a little recognition!
“While in school to become a teacher, Matt Goodwin decided he didn’t want to continue with his degree.
In 2000, Goodwin found a job bartending at Fast Eddie’s Bar and Grill. Rather than return to school, he has since become an important player in the Spokane dining scene.
“Once I found someone willing to open a restaurant with me — and my first was Pub Club — one turned into two and two suddenly turned into three.”
Currently, Goodwin co-owns Fast Eddie’s Bar and Grill, Press, the Boiler Room, Volstead Act and the Backyard Public House. He has plans to open Remedy — a neighborhood gastropub with a 1920s pharmacy theme — in March or April.
The eclectic pub menu at Remedy will feature clams, wraps, salads and upscale sandwiches with what Goodwin describes as a “foodie twist.” Every item listed on the menu will be cooked in a wood-fired oven.
Goodwin believes that the casual dining scene in Spokane has changed tremendously since he’s been a part of it, and the competition level especially has elevated.
