After looking back at the Spokane Restaurant Week menus, those of us at The Inlander found that the pronunciation of some of the dishes might be a wee bit tricky. We want to ensure that every Spokanite can order their meals during this tasty event, no matter the difficulty of the name. Here’s a guide to help you out.

MARQUISE (mar-keez) – a chocolate mousse cake brought to you by Chaps

BOCCONCINI FRITTI (boh-coh-cheen-ee frit-ee) – Ciao Mambo’s fried mozzarella cheese appetizer

LINGUINE ARRABBIATA (lin-gween-ee aw-rah-bee-aw-tah) – another mouthful in the form of a pasta dish from Ciao Mambo

GYOZA (gee-oh-zah) – these Japanese pot stickers filled with chicken and vegetables are found at Mustard Seed

FOCACCIA (foh-cah-chuh) – Rock City Grill is offering their housemade flat bread for their first course during Restaurant Week

MOSTACCIOLI (moh-stah-chel-ee) – Italian dish baked to perfection at Tomato Street

PETITE TNT COULOTTE (pee-teet tee-en-tee cew-lote) – delicious steak covered in a red wine demi-glace served at Twigs

THAI BEEF CARPACCIO (tye be-eef car-paw-chee-oh) – straight from the kitchen of Central Food

BRUSCHETTA (bruh-sket-tuh) – The District Bar and Ciao Mambo offer this Italian dish

SOUP OR SALAD (suh-oop or sa-lad) – nothing is more embarrassing than thinking your server is asking if you want a Super Salad
