  • 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.

  • Casper Fry Public House

    928 S. Perry St. Spokane - South

    509-535-0536

    Inlander readers voted this hip new eatery in the South Perry District the Best New Restaurant. Opened in June 2012 by the team from Madeleine’s Patisserie, Casper Fry turns out upscale Southern comfort food like Low Country Shrimp and Grits and some of the best fried chicken you’ll find. Its Josper oven, one of only about 10 in the country, uses charcoal and wood chips for smoking and grilling to turn out house-smoked meat and sausages. (July 2013)

  • 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 menu often changes according to the season, but you can’t go wrong with the Korean pork sandwich, the Bibimbap with housemade kimchee or the terrine with mushroom mousse and a poached egg. 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.

  • Chaps

    4235 S. Cheney-Spokane Rd. Spokane - South

    509-624-4182

    This friendly, shabby-chic eatery and bakery is off the beaten path, located off Highway 195 on the outskirts of the Palouse (10 minutes from downtown). Chaps serves up hearty chorizo omelettes, homemade cinnamon rolls and baked oatmeal for breakfast, fish tacos and meatloaf for lunch, and curry chicken and grilled tilapia for dinner. And at Chaps, there’s always room for dessert (and maybe a vintage cocktail). Their in-house bakery Cake serves up a decadent selection of tiramisu, bavarian cream cake, chocolate mousse and more.

    509-328-8911

Tickets for the Spokane Arena, INB Performing Arts Center, Fox Theater, Bing Crosby Theater, or Spokane Civic Theatre will get you 20 percent off food items. (July 2013)
  • Churchill's Steakhouse

    165 S. Post St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-474-9888

    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.

  • 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.

  • The District Bar

    916 W. First Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-244-3279

    The District Bar takes traditional bar food in a new direction, with influences from Executive Chef Gary Evans’ love for Southern cooking and appreciation for local favorites. Think “beef patties smothered in BBQ and bacon, paired with Walla Walla onions.” Think “apple cider and brown sugar pork chops.” Think “beer braised short ribs with horseradish and truffle oil.” The bar also features 42 different beer selections. That might be daunting at first, but you can bite into the tap list by ordering a beer flight ($6) with your choice of five three-ounce draft beers. (Feb. 2013)

  • Downriver Grill

    3315 W. Northwest Blvd. Spokane - North

    509-323-1600

    Since its inception in 2003, Downriver Grill has gained a hard-core following of foodie regulars. Whether you want to go comfort food (butternut squash mac and cheese gratin $15), Italian (puttanesca, $15), gluten-free (shrimp bisque, $5), or vegan (coriander-crusted tofu, $16), there’s a little something to keep you coming back.

  • EPIC

    100 N. Hayford Rd. Airway Heights

    509-242-7000

    In June 2013, Northern Quest’s sports bar, the Q, was gutted, rebooted and injected with a big dose of — you guessed it — epicness. The massive 10-by-30-foot TV still stretches over the top of the bar, but everything else is new — from the bar back to cushy chairs to a couple of 12-person booths and a dark, woody color scheme.
  • 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.

  • Hills' Restaurant & Lounge

    401 W. Main Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-3946

    While the food at Hills’ is often simple, it’s prepared with such care and fresh ingredients that we can’t stop thinking about it. The bar is also notable — their tap selection is usually unusual, and they have surprising reserves of port and scotch. Owner Steve Hill can recommend a hard-to-find beer or whip up a specialty cocktail, if that’s more your speed. (July 2013)

  • Italia Trattoria

    144 S. Cannon St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-459-6000

    Nestled into the heart of Browne’s Addition, Italia Trattoria is a home-cooked hit from former Luna chef Anna Vogel. With a focus on natural and sustainable ingredients, the menu features handmade pastas, braised pork shoulder and seasonal vegetables spiced and grilled to perfection. No one is doing Italian quite like this. (July 2013)

  • Laguna Café

    2013 E. 29th Ave. Spokane - South

    509-448-0887

    After eight and a half years on Regal Street, Laguna’s owners decided it was time to move the cafe to a larger space, while keeping all the other aspects of Laguna as much the same as possible. The new location (as of mid-2015) on East 29th Avenue in the Grapetree Village Shopping Center offers additional seating space, a full bar, more parking and a bigger patio, while retaining a drive-through. Laguna's menu of mostly burgers, filet mignon, ribs and salads has remained the same, but there are plans to make some additions to it now that the new location is officially open. (July 2016)

    509-924-9600

    The Longhorn has been a Spokane institution since they set up shop back in the ’50s, and they’ve been filling the stomachs of the Inland Northwest with their massive proportions ever since. The secret of their beloved barbecue? All of their ribs, steaks and chicken are smoked in pits with a combination of apple, cherry, alder and birch woods. (July 2013)

  • Luigi's Italian Restaurant

    245 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-624-5226

    Craving Italian? Voted Best Italian for more than 10 years by Inlander readers, Luigi’s serves traditional Italian favorites. Although it’s tempting to fill up on the hot sourdough bread and garlic butter, pace yourself. Minestrone soup is next (why have a salad when their homemade soup is this good), followed by an entrée like veal piccata or chicken cacciatori. Need some gluten-free or carb-free options? No problem. (July 2013)
  • MacKenzie River Pizza Co.

    9225 N. Nevada St. Spokane - North

    509-413-1043

    With a northern Rockies lodge feel, eating pizza sounds much more cozy in this Montana-based chain. Nearly two dozen pizzas are on the menu, with toppings like pine nuts, crumbled bleu cheese and mandarin oranges. Creative toppings rest on sourdough, natural grain, and thick or thin crust, including one that's gluten free. All three Spokane locations (downtown, upper South Hill and the north end of Nevada Street) are spacious and work well for large groups and date nights alike. (April 2013)

  • Manito Tap House

    3011 S. Grand Blvd. Spokane - South

    509-279-2671

    Manito Tap House burst on the scene, was instantly voted Best New Restaurant by Inlander readers, and the bloom has not come off this South Hill rose. Booths, tables, a single stool tucked away at the end of the bar — they’re all still consistently packed. The Taphouse went gastropub and hit their mark, providing high-end comfort food with good ingredients at reasonable prices. Get the yam chips, for God’s sake. For beer nerds, hop-heads and brew connoisseurs, the Manito Tap House rotates dozens of regional or hard-to-find beers on tap. For the uninitiated, the staff will walk you through a wonderland of ales, porters, pilsners and ciders — there are more than 50 tap handles. (July 2013)

  • Mustard Seed

    4750 N. Division St. Spokane - North

    509-483-1500

    You can still get your favorite dishes like the Shrimp Osaka and Bong Bong Chicken, but after more than 20 years in business, The Mustard Seed isn’t resting on its laurels. This year they added quite a few new pan-Asian dishes to their menu, including the Ahi Tuna appetizer, Chicken Teriyaki and Green Beans and Pad Thai Noodles with shrimp or chicken. Make a reservation during Spokane Restaurant Week in February, when we’re guessing their chefs will be trying out even more new dishes.
