The Inlander Staff & r & & r & HANGAR 57 & r & & r & The Hangar features airplanes over moth-eaten jerseys and pennants, and frontlines its 57 martinis (or cocktails in a martini glass) over keg nights, but it's definitely a sports bar. The menu's focus is the stone-roasted pizza -- make your own or pick from the menu, with options like Margherita and Hawaiian or more adventurous ones, like El Taco, the Philly cheese steak and zucchini and prosciutto. The Buffalo chicken pizza, with slices of tender chicken bathed in Frank's Red Hot atop a thin crust slice, was weird, like eating nachos on a cheeseburger. And yet it was surprisingly delicious. The hot sauce, piquant and vinegary, balanced nicely against the cheese and the very agreeable crust. The grinder -- that's a sub sandwich -- with sausage and sweet cherry peppers was exceptional, with sweet, yet vinegary cherry peppers paired with sweet Italian sausage and truly flavorful provolone in a soft artisan roll. Hangar 57 has a pretty decent selection of rotating handles, including (at the moment) Old Chubb, Elysian IPA and Boundary Bay's amber. Martinis and beer pong? Zucchini and prosciutto grinders? Frat boys and highbrows? Somehow Hangar 57 pulls it off. 2911 E. 57th Ave., 448-5707 (JS)





Nosworthy's


The glossy laminated menu warns, "VERY, VERY LARGE PORTIONS!" above the breakfast listings, and it's truth in advertising. The Breakfast Special ($5.45), one of the smaller combos -- two pancakes, two slices of bacon and two eggs -- sounds manageable, but these cakes are substantial, the size of hubcaps, made with a rich eggy batter. The fancy hashbrowns ($3.50), topped with smoky bacon, tangy cheddar and colorful green onion, are a delight. All of the omelets begin with three eggs -- except the Logger Four-Egg. Nosworthy's doesn't take plastic, so be prepared to pay cash for all that food. 4045 N. Government Way, Coeur d'Alene, (208) 664-6161 (AC)





Twigs


The minimalist vibe at Twigs is soothing, earthy and pleasingly inviting. The New Orleans shrimp appetizer ($11) had enough heat to make a statement without burning, but it was a little too oily; the Moroccan beef ($13), little chunks of beef nicely seasoned with a hint of cinnamon among other spices, served with a Gorgonzola fondue, was more successful. Pesto-crusted chicken ($17) made a pretty platter indeed, with a bright, fresh taste. The contrasting textures of the steak penne ($16) -- a m & eacute;lange of beef tenderloin morsels with crisp broccolini, garlic, shallots and bacon in a parmesan cream sauce -- made for a successful dish. The menu items at Twigs offer unexpected taste combinations that are often quite successful -- and lots of fun. 4320 S. Regal St., 443-8000; River Park Square, 232-3376; 9820 N. Nevada St., 465-8794 (LM)





KALICO KITCHEN


Working folks chow down early at this homey and welcoming north-side breakfast eatery; later come the retirees and bleary-eyed college students. Service is attentive and the extensive breakfast menu has choices from egg combos to waffles to omelets, along with a few house specialties -- scrambles, breakfast burritos and even eggs benedict. The "Vegi & amp; Cheese" omelet ($7) was an edible art project, with some of its components -- tomato, green pepper, onion, black olive, mushroom and yellow cheese -- on top, and the French toast side order, with powdered sugar and maple syrup, was delish. Eggs come cooked as requested, and the bacon is thin, not too soft, not too crisp. The orange juice was fresh, pulpy and especially good. 2931 N. Division, 326-7144 (AC)
