Kim Do Vietnamese Restaurant -- Kim Do makes it easy to enjoy authentically prepared Vietnamese dishes -- and great service, too. The family-run restaurant is cheerful, very tidy and spotlessly clean. Each table is outfitted with a stainless steel spoon/fingerbowl/chopstick caddy and a stunning array of condiments. Menu items include appetizers, noodle soups, rice dishes, noodle dishes and can be ordered by number. The fresh spring rolls (2 for $2.50) are terrific, translucent rolls filled with shrimp, noodles and vegetables and served with peanut sauce. The Pho Ga noodle soup ($5.50) is satisfying and rejuvenating, filled with hunks of chicken breast meat, long, thin rice noodles and green onions in a light broth that makes it warming without being thick or heavy. The real slam dunk may be the bun thit nu'ong cha gio ($6), a diverse rice vermicelli noodle dish with grilled sliced pork, deep-fried egg rolls, bean sprouts and lettuce. 2018 N. Hamilton St. Call: 487-7700 (9/2/04, MC)





Moxie -- Moxie is back with a sophisticated new look and location (in the old Great Harvest space on Sprague), with a menu that features Chef Ian Wingate's signature fusion creations, which lean toward the Asian: wok-seared spiced orange stir-fry and coconut jasmine rice available with steak ($12), ahi tuna ($12) chicken ($10) duck ($12) tofu and eggplant ($10) and prawns ($14). Sweet ginger-glazed Rogue River salmon ($18) and sesame seed seared yellow fin tuna ($18) are also on the menu. And fear not, for good ol' American cuisine (charbroiled chipotle-glazed meatloaf ($14) with mashed potatoes) is represented as well. The flat iron steak ($16) was a succulent success, cooked as ordered, with a delicate miso teriyaki glaze and sweet chili-glazed vegetables. Service slumped a little, especially toward the end of our meal. 816 W. Sprague. Call: 456-3594. (8/19/04, LM)





The Wine Cellar -- The Wine Cellar has been a mainstay in Coeur d'Alene for years, attracting diners interested in good food, oenophiles eager to explore the vast wine selection and people just wanting to listen to a little live music. The menu is always changing, although a number of signature dishes are always available. In addition to several preparations of salmon, the Wine Cellar offers pasta milano with rock shrimp ($12), a basic dish distinguished by fresh zesty tomatoes, roasted garlic and fresh basil, as well as plum pork ($11), marinated in rosemary, garlic and white wine, oven-roasted and served over garlic parmesan mashed potatoes. As for the wine list, the Wine Cellar's does not disappoint, and it keeps you wanting to come back to try new vintners and varieties. 313 Sherman Ave., CdA. Call: (208) 664-9463 (7/22/04, LM)





Molly's Family Restaurant -- The little dog on the window knows what she's talking about. At Molly's you will be fed, and you will be fed lots. Unfortunately, you'll also experience rushed servers that might not notice your dirty coffee cup or sketchy silverware. The Trio of Eggs ($6.99) comes with three eggs, hash browns, four sausage links and wheat toast. The Molly's Mess ($8.35) is a concoction of scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage, peppers, onions and mushrooms, all blanketed in white gravy and cheddar cheese. The d & eacute;cor is dominated by country accents and many pictures of the owner's Pekingese. (224 S. Lincoln St. Call: 624-4413 (Sheri Boggs)
