Water Venue Adds To Dining Out

We’ve all asked or been asked the same question when it comes time to dine in unfamiliar surroundings: Where’s a good place to eat? Most answers are a question: What do you want? Italian, seafood, steak or a sandwich? Fancy or casual? Those general categories, along with a couple other ethnic options – Mexican, Greek, Chinese – seem to cover most bases, or at least get a sense of what the inquisitor wants. Our restaurateur got this question a lot. The category he always included – and which nearly always topped the list – was view. With this idea percolating, we took our wives to what is simply the best water experience in the area: We settled onto the patio at Anthony’s on a late spring afternoon for a glass of wine, an appetizer, a lovely view of the Spokane Falls complete with the soundtrack of roiling water and, what we do best, a debate/Dave Trimmer & Dan Coyle, SR Spokane7.
