Like Mom Makes

The Le brothers' Daybreak Café specializes in homey Vietnamese flavors
For Thomas Le and his brother Johnny, finding a worthy banh mi in Spokane was a frustrating enough exercise, they figured the only way to enjoy the Vietnamese sandwich was to make it themselves.

An Ode to the Tall Can

Happy Hour Guide 2015
There's a tactile gratification that comes from just holding a 16-ounce can of beer in your hand after a long day. It's cold, dripping with perspiration and just heavy enough to let you know that there's more beer in there than your typical aluminum vessel.

On a budget? Want to check out some of the region's more upscale restaurants you've heard and read so much about, but thought you could never afford?

Better Late than Thirsty

Happy Hour Guide 2015
The term "happy hour" is most easily traced back to the days of Prohibition, when folks would sneak into a speakeasy and soak up some early evening booze before heading out to dinner at a law-abiding restaurant. Thus, we often consider happy hour an afternoon event, but that's proving to be some seriously outdated thinking.

Not So Sweet

A 1996 Lake City High School graduate, Whiteside made the circuit of Coeur d'Alene restaurants as a teenager, washing dishes before landing at Takara Japanese Cuisine & Sushi in 1997.

After what Blair calls a "complete and total remodel," 24 Taps relaunched during March Madness as a fully operational sports bar and dining spot, serving up "gourmet, fresh, hand-pressed burgers" made in-house, along with homemade appetizers and fresh salads.

A Comfortable Pace
