Eat, Drink, Repeat. That's the tagline for Inlander Restaurant Week 2020, happening Feb. 20-29. The eighth annual 10-day celebration of culinary creativity showcases the most restaurants ever, with 121 participants across the Spokane-Coeur d'Alene region. Menus for each restaurant's three-course, fixed-price ($22 or $33) meals are live now at InlanderRestaurantWeek.com, with printed copies of the event guide available at select locations before being inserted in the Feb. 20 edition of the Inlander.
Once again, Restaurant Week is partnering with Second Harvest of the Inland Northwest to donate thousands of meals to feed those in need in our community. Diners can help support the cause by tagging their photos with the #IRWRaveReviews hashtag on social media (make sure the post is public). For each post with the tag, Sysco Spokane will donate five meals to Second Harvest.
With restaurants ranging from fine dining to family-friendly pubs, there's something for everyone. Many restaurants are offering more gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian food than ever before, and new this year is the introduction of several counter-service eateries, including the popular Cochinito Taqueria and entirely gluten-free Cole's Bakery & Cafe.
Newcomers to this year's event include some of the region's most buzzworthy recent arrivals, like Gander and Ryegrass, Rüt Bar & Kitchen and Eyvind. While Restaurant Week is a great way to try something new — or new to you — it's also the perfect time to return to and support your favorite places.
So go check out the menus, make your picks and don't forget to call in a reservation!
