Rocky Rococo -- Rocky Rococo has been serving Spokane's pizza needs for 18 years, and here's why: The location and atmosphere are great, the pies are uniquely tasty deep-dish numbers, the staff is cheerful and the salad bar is probably the best you'll find downtown. For lunch, the unlimited salad bar for $6 is a good option but so is the #3 special (a regular slice of your choice with a trip to the salad bar and a medium soda) at $6.39. A "slice" here is a sturdy rectangular slab of crunchy-chewy crust topped with a sweet and tangy sauce, melted cheese, and your choice of toppings. We recommend the Uncle Sal's. 520 W. Main Ave. Call 747-1000. (Reviewed 3/10/05, MC)





Bonsai Bistro -- The Bonsai Bistro is a fun restaurant with a cool concept and pan-Asian foods that range from mild and comfortable to fiery and stylish. The interior is understated, with warm earth tones complementing the chic lighting. The ginger chicken and broccoli ($12) is lovely, with the bright green steamed broccoli ringing the plate around a mound of tender chicken in a delicate ginger sauce. The crispy beef Szechuan ($13) is hot and tingly, with lots of julienne carrots and celery, green onions and bean sprouts in a spicy sweet and sour soy sauce. 101 Sherman Ave., CdA Call: (208) 765-4321 (Reviewed 9/30/04, LM)





Moxie -- Moxie is back with a sophisticated new look and location, 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. 816 W. Sprague. Call: 456-3594. (Reviewed 8/19/04, LM)





Anthony's Homeport -- Anthony's has brought its Seattle style to Spokane, settling into one of the best spots in town, the former Satly's above the Spokane Falls. Seafood and freshwater fish dominate the menu. The $23 Northwest Duet (wild king salmon in a sweet pepper beurre blanc and Alaskan halibut) was perfectly cooked and flavorful. The $25 yellow fin ahi was marinated in a ginger soy sauce, chargrilled medium rare and served with homemade pineapple chutney. Soup or a salad is included with all dinners. Service is capable though not, as yet, outstanding. Reservations recommended. 510 N. Lincoln St. Call: 328-9009 (LM, reviewed 10/28/04)





Twigs Bistro -- Twigs offers food and atmosphere that manages to transcend commonly held food court dining conceptions. The lunch menu of the day offers an array of intriguing and competitively priced choices, including sandwiches and wraps ($5-$6), soups, salads, topped baked potatoes, combos and a section called "hot off the grill" where you choose among seven options (battered fish, cheeseburger deluxe, crispy chicken sandwich, ham and Swiss melt, etc.) and get fries and a 16 oz. soda in the deal for $5.95. 808 W. Main Ave. in River Park Square. Call 232-3376. (MC)
