Roux
Rumplings
Epic Sandwich
America - The Diner
Over the 9
Ten Tables
Gospel Bird
Hull and Highwater

Am I missing any?


I was actually the chef at Over the 9 longer than Griffin Paulin was and had a lot more success selling food than he did. He was trying to sell $15 foie gras, peanut butter, and jelly sandwiches to bachelorette parties doing wine tastings. Over the 9 closed because Falls City's brewing operation was moving and the owner didn't want to continue bothering with food in that location with nothing to bring people to that side of 8th street.

I work 3 blocks from Over the 9. When it first opened we would get lunch there a few times a week and beers and apps after work atleast once a week. Once the menu changed (prices increased, portions decreased) we quit going.
