Get ready for the evolution of The Goodwich. The popular Downtown sandwich spot is building a second location in the southwest at Buffalo and Warm Springs, in the same new center that will house new restaurants from Fukuburger, Fist of Fusion and Jogasaki Burrito. The new Goodwich should open in December or January and will be about 50 percent bigger than its predecessor, and offer full service instead of counter service only, a patio and a bar serving beer and wine. Owner Josh Clark says all your favorites will stay on the menu at Goodwich the sequel, but new dishes will be popping up, too.

We will look forward to sharing any and all additional news about the Palms’ new offerings when plans are solidified.”
