  • Maialina Pizzeria Napoletana

    602 S. Main St. Moscow/Pullman

    208-882-2694

    Owners of Moscow’s Sangria Grille, a Peruvian-style restaurant, are adding to their ventures with the opening of a new pizzeria in the same town, Maialina Pizzeria Napoletana. The pizzas, made largely with local and seasonal ingredients, are cooked in less than two minutes in a wood-burning oven at more than 800 degrees. Other rustic Italian cuisine such as homemade pasta and Italian cured meats and cheeses make up the menu. To go with it all is a hefty Italian wine list that represents each wine region in the country. (July 2013)
  • Marrakesh

    1227 N. Division Spokane - North

    509-328-9733

    After 18 years on Northwest Boulevard, owner Mamdouh Zayed opened in this new space in October 2010. Dining here is as much about the experience as it is about the food. The menu (same at lunch and dinner) is a set $20 for a five-course traditional Moroccan meal with your choice of entrees. Allow at least an hour for a leisurely meal — longer if you want to relax between courses and linger over the floral-scented herbal tea. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves. Moroccan food is traditionally eaten with your hands. (I’ll admit: I used a fork for the couscous.) (Kirsten Harrington, March 2011)

  • O'Doherty's Irish Grille

    525 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-0322

    Downtown emphasizes the Irish; in the Valley, it's the barbecue. Either place, you’ll find the Irish stew — meaty broth chock-full of veggies and potatoes — and the Burnt End sandwich, which sounds funny, but it's tangy and delicious. And if you're hankering for a Butte meat pasty, this is the place. On the boozing side, O'Doherty's is where you go to get a Johnny Jump-up (a shot of whiskey dropped in a pint of cider). It's also where you go hoping to see someone stand on the bar and sing for a chance to put a dollar bill on the wall. (July 2012)

  • O'Doherty's Irish Pub & BBQ

    11723 E. Sprague Spokane Valley

    509-924-2578

    The menu here is similar to the downtown O'Doherty's — Irish stew, corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips — with the addition of barbecue dishes like pulled pork, smoked right there in the applewood smoker. You can get Guinness and other Irish favorites on tap, and if you like beer of the root variety, they have their own special blend. The ambience is closer to sports bar than Irish pub, but a sip of the stout will get you in the right mood. (AC)

  • Poole's Public House

    101 E. Hastings Road Spokane - North

    509-413-1834

    Poole’s Public House is an excuse for owner Scott Poole to get back to his roots — both childhood and ancestral. Poole returned to his native north Spokane to open the English-inspired pub/restaurant/sports bar with a healthy menu. House favorites include the Devils on Horseback, an English recipe of dates marinated in soy ginger, stuffed with almonds and wrapped in bacon, but traditional meals, like bangers and mash and English po’ boy sandwiches, are popular, too. Don’t forget the dozen English brews and local beer on tap. (July 2013)

    509-368-9760

The menu continues to offer a bevy of sandwiches big enough to split, as well as items like fish tacos, salads, and comfort-food entrées like bangers and mash and baby back ribs. (July 2016)

    There are many reasons everyone raves about this local, fine-dining stalwart.

  • Tony’s on the Lake

    6823 E. Coeur d’Alene Lake Dr. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-667-9885

    Tony’s, about five miles southeast of the Coeur d’Alene Resort, sits alongside one the lake’s many inlets, a location that allows diners to feel far from Coeur d’Alene’s summer bustle. The Northern Italian-influenced menu includes appetizers like cicchetti, small Venetian plates that include items like almond crusted duck tenders, toasted ravioli and fried dough with salami (gnocco fritto con affetati) along with more familiar antipasto salads. The menu is full of seafood options — mussels, calamari, prawns and fresh fish of the day — but turf is also well-represented. (July 2013)

    415 W. Hastings Spokane - North

    509-315-4277

    More than a few people who've entered the Unforgiven Lounge say it looks like Vegas. The all-black walls glisten with chrome décor and painted silver waves. A chandelier hangs over a baby grand piano in the corner and the white bar lights up with fluorescent colors that are changed on demand via remote control. The wine and martini bar also offers a menu with American, European and pasta dishes. (April 2014)
