BEST FINE DINING & DESSERT
Clinkerdagger has a stranglehold on this category, having come out on top for the last five years in a row. With world-class food and service, a cozy and intimate feel and great views of the Spokane River (and marmots!) thanks to its location inside the turn-of-the-century Flour Mill, it's easy to see why.
Obviously, our readers think highly of Clinkerdagger's selection of after-dinner sweeties as well. I have at least one friend from out of town who makes the restaurant's burnt cream such a focus of each and every visit that the rest of us feel like mere window dressing in comparison. He just won't shut up about it.
