Spokane knows food.
From farm-to-table fresh menus like Mizuna to Casper Fry's southern flavor with a modern twist, Spokanites are spoiled with a smorgasbord of dining options. These venues along with many others have earned Spokane food-lovers' fame. In recent week's we've seen Santé's Jeremy Hansen nominated for a James Beard award
and go cook at the prestigious New York spot, and had professional foodie Alton Brown make the rounds
through Spokane's dining scene before his show at the INB Performing Arts Center. And, of course, Inlander Restaurant Week
at the end of February took locals all over the region for amazing food.
Now the Wall Street Journal
is on board, recognizing Spokane as one of "six small towns for food lovers" in an article today that offers some love to Durkin's Liquor Bar (the "over-the-top meat menu ... sets this place apart") and Italia Trattoria ("Spokanites love the changing menu of house-made pastas"), among other spots. For some reason, the Journal thinks Casper Fry is in Sacramento, but we'll cut them a little slack.
