Until now, Club David’s food options were pretty much limited to frozen pizza. But that’s about to change.
Ellee Spawn, who owned a restaurant in northwest Iowa about 10 years ago, is returning to the kitchen to run Gnosh.
It will be based out of the downtown nightclub and initially operate a few nights a week as well as during events. She’s scheduled to debut her empanadas Friday night.
“My menu is always going to be a work in progress,” she said. “It’s bar food but a little more upscale. We won’t have anything fried at all.”
Spawn’s preliminary menu includes appetizers, salads and sandwiches, but she said she’s open to customer suggestions.
“I’m trying to keep the operation as lean as I can,” she said, adding she might eventually add catering and an occasional prix fixe menu.
“It’s gastropub fare. I’m just trying to do my own thing. I’m more of a foodie that really wants to feed people. That’s really what makes me happy.”
The plan is to start serving food Thursday through Saturday nights later this month.
