Wooden City—big city flair in smaller towns

Wooden City restaurant


written by Cara Strickland

Restaurant industry veterans Jon Green and Abe Fox met in Seattle a little over four years ago. They hatched an idea for a place that would offer a big-city quality of food and experience somewhere smaller—Fox had recently moved to Tacoma and fell in love with the area. He and Green were excited to create food they loved to eat and a place they wanted to be regulars. Tacoma embraced their eclectic menu—the salmon toast, Hungarian wax peppers and beet ravioli paired with burgers, roasted chicken and fresh pasta keep people coming back. They’d been planning to expand to another up-and-coming area—Spokane—and the coronavirus didn’t stop their 2020 opening. At each of the restaurants, you’ll find a classy, comfortable interior, well-made food, handcrafted cocktails and stellar service. You just might become a regular, too.   

Beet ravioli is on the menu, as are decadent burgers.
