  • Anthony's at Spokane Falls

    510 N. Lincoln St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-328-9009

    Fresh seafood is the top priority for Anthony’s — the restaurant company works directly with fishermen and shellfish suppliers to make sure every last salmon, swordfish and oyster meets a high standard. But diners don’t need to know the details to appreciate the fine-dining atmosphere, daily specials, happy hour offerings and — perhaps most impressive — the postcard view of the Spokane Falls.

  • Cedars Floating Restaurant

    1514 Marina Dr., Blackwell Island Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-664-2922

    This isn’t lakeside dining — when you eat at Cedars’ floating restaurant, you’re dining on the water at the confluence between the Spokane River and Lake Coeur d’Alene. Seafood is the specialty here and the smoky, cedar-planked, wild-caught salmon is consistently good. The patio is the place to be. You can even arrive by boat and tie up at one of Cedars’ docks.

    Don Draper would fit in beautifully at Churchills, with its luxurious, masculine décor, top-shelf cocktails and traditional (in all the best ways) takes on sides and steaks. The star of the show here is the USDA prime Midwestern beef that’s dry-aged, then cooked at 1800 degrees. The sides are a la carte, and the Cougar Gold mac and cheese is worth every single calorie.

  • Hay J's Bistro

    21706 E. Mission Ave. Liberty Lake

    509-926-2310

    The blocky strip-mall exterior — and book-cover first impressions — are immediately overturned the second you open the door. Inside, Hay J’s Bistro is pure class, with candle flames flickering atop wine bottles at the tables, and metallic vine sculptures wrapping around wine bottles on the walls. With a wine list boasting 100 choices, and a wine bar next door, the selection manages to live up to the hype set by the décor. The relatively pricey menu boasts steaks, tapas, burgers, pastas and risottos — but seafood remains the most popular genre.

The sirloin-brisket burgers, coupled with happy hour and a sunset, make this a worthy destination. (July 2013)

  • Midtown Bluebird

    816 N. Fourth St. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-665-3777

    In the heart of Coeur d'Alene, Viljo and Autumn Basso's Midtown Bluebird, which opened in mid-2016, offers refined but accessible cuisine to locals and tourists looking to sample the city's culinary array. For dinner, under the "briny, raw and crunchy" menu heading, choose from a pickle plate, tater tot poutine, baked clams, a charred octopus salad and many other starters that offer a creative melding of flavors. A dinner staple of Muscovy duck is cooked confit-style and served with Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and bacon. The Bassos are known in the region for opening Syringa Japanese Cafe & Sushi Bar, which they still own. (Next door to Syringa, the couple founded but no longer owns the Garnet Cafe, a popular local breakfast spot.) With an old Western saloon-themed interior in the space, a relic of previous tenants, the Midtown Bluebird's owners embraced the quirky and eclectic atmosphere, which complements their ultra-varied menu offerings.
