  • 1898 Public House

    2010 Waikiki Rd. Spokane - North

    509-466-2121

    When the Kalispel Tribe bought the former Spokane Country Club, they tapped Executive Chef Tyler Schwenk (former of Beverly's at the Coeur d'Alene Resort) to create a menu that captured an upscale gastropub feel, but that was also family-friendly. The result is a widely varying menu featuring Schwenk's take on youthful foods and traditional classics alike, like the lobster corn dog appetizer, or the honey-stung fried chicken entrée. With sweeping views of the golf course below, a cozy bar and sizable patio that offers spectacular sunset views through the trees, 1898 is a place for both special occasions and post-golf refreshments. Daily happy hours from 4-6 pm offer downsized versions of many of Schwenk's regular menu mainstays, and Tuesday night hosts "Burgers and Brews," where diners can choose between two featured burgers that come with a 20-ounce pint of beer, all for the cool price of $15. Portions at 1898 are hearty, and with so many options, no matter your reason for stopping in, you'll find more than enough to sate your hunger and slake your thirst. (CHEY SCOTT)

    24 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-703-7223

    High ceilings, exposed brick walls and artsy murals make this one of the prettiest spots in downtown. But it’s the creative and artfully executed vegan and vegetarian bistro fare that’s creating such a buzz. And yes, the vegan carrot cake cupcakes are that good. (July 2013)

  • Browne's Tavern

    1924 W. Pacific Spokane - Downtown

    509-315-9934

    While "tavern" may not be the first word that comes to mind when describing the feel of the charming, brick-colored Victorian housing this eatery, a steampunk-inspired decor inside — including a wall of open books attached by the cover framing a taxidermied bear head — lends to the menu's eclectic approach ranging from German to Thai, Italian to Hawaiian. The lack of a distinct theme is intentional. Browne's Tavern co-owner and executive chef Floyd Loomis set out to create a menu representing many varieties of international cuisine, with a focus on comfort food-inspired entrées.

  • Central Food

    1335 W. Summit Pkwy. Spokane - North

    509-315-8036

    Casual, yet innovative and refined — that’s the m.o. at Central Food.

The restaurant welcomes those with specific diets with open arms — celiacs, vegans and carnivores can all unite and not be jealous of each other’s options. Sandwiches at Central Food are composed between their daily-baked bread. Purchase a loaf to take home. You won’t regret it.

  • Clover

    913 E. Sharp Ave. Spokane - East

    509-487-2937

    The quaint location in a refurbished, turn-of-the-century Craftsman bungalow is enough to draw diners inside, but the award-winning cocktails and a menu of local ingredients will keep them coming back again. Herbs are grown in an on-site greenhouse, and almost everything is made from scratch, including the bread used in all of Clover’s dishes. Bakery items are also offered for purchase to savor at home. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are highlighted on the ever-changing menu depending on the time of year, but for dessert you really should try the melt-in-your-mouth orangesicle cake.

Bordered by a small stream and shaded by the nearby hills, Craft & Gather's location makes you feel much farther from the city core than you really are. (CHEY SCOTT)

  • Doyle's Ice Cream Parlor

    2229 W. Boone Ave. Spokane - North

    509-325-4903

    Cheaper than chain ice cream shops and scooping up servings of the frozen goodness bigger than your head (believe it or not, that’s only a slight overstatement), this little red-and-white-striped building is a favorite in the West Central neighborhood. Decorated with vintage toys, kids love looking around Doyle’s, finding a new toy each time they come in, while the masters behind the counter artfully create the best treats. The smell of the homemade waffle cones will draw you in and the taste of the ice cream will keep you coming back.
  • Durkin's Liquor Bar

    415 W. Main Spokane - Downtown

    509-863-9501

    From the restaurateur family who brought Spokane Casper Fry and Madeleine's Cafe, Durkin's is named after early Spokane liquor tycoon Jimmy Durkin. The highly-refined menu offers small plates, salads, sandwiches and traditional plates, balanced by an extensive selection of craft cocktails, drafts and wine. Small plates are plentiful, enough to share yet so delicious you might resist. Hearty lentils and brawny portions of bone marrow pair perfectly with effervescent French 75s. Duck rillettes, served in jam jars and tempered with sweet onion jam, beckon for a glass of syrah. (Dec. 2014)

  • The Elk Public House

    1931 W. Pacific Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-363-1973

    While many restaurants and bars toss the words “pub” or “public house” after their names, The Elk lives up to the spirit of the pub by serving as much as a gathering point for the Browne’s Addition neighborhood as it is an eatery. That’s not to say the food isn’t special, because it certainly is. The menu includes sandwiches, burgers and salads, but if you’ve ever tasted The Elk’s marinated pork soft tacos, that will likely become your go-to menu item. (July 2013)
