Enjoy happy hour overlooking scenic waterfalls, try “train-settled” wines near the railroad tracks, and learn the history behind ethnic dishes made by immigrants and refugees who now call this growing riverfront city home. Unique Eats and Eateries of Spokane explores these establishments and more—from A to Zip’s Drive-In.
Zip’s enjoys a cult-like following among those who grew up in “Lilac City.” In fact, Spokane celebrity chef Chad White once flew from Southern California to Spokane just for a Bacon Double. Read about Chad’s hip ceviche bar and other must-visit hot spots in this compendium of interesting and iconic eateries and the people behind them.
Spokane celebrates farm-to-table dining, a handful of James Beard semifinalists, and regional ingredients such as lentils, Washington State University’s signature canned Cougar Gold sharp white cheddar, and huckleberries. The “River City” loves all things huckleberry, locally-sourced-and-milled grain, and Pig Out in the Park, an annual food and music event started in 1979.
