Inlander Restaurant Week runs for 10 days, starting Thursday. It helps to have a reservation.
During the event, participating restaurants offer three-course prix fixe menus for either $21 or $31, excluding tax and tip. (That’s up $2 in each category over last year.) At both price points, meals include an appetizer, entrée and dessert.
More than 100 restaurants from throughout the region are taking part in the sixth annual event – from Airway Heights and Spokane to Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, Post Falls, Coeur d’Alene and Worley.
Restaurant Week started in 2013 as a joint venture between Spokane’s alternative weekly newspaper and Visit Spokane, the region’s marketing and tourism organization. It had 53 participating restaurants its first year. That number jumped to 74 in 2014, 97 in 2015 and 104 in 2016. This year, there’s 107, including 28 in Idaho and a dozen first-time participants.
Newcomers are: Bonefish Grill, Cascadia Public House, Collective Kitchen, Das Stein Haus, Martino Tuscan Grill, Morty’s Tap and Grille, Palouse Bar and Grill, Republic Kitchen, Republic Pi, Wiley’s Downtown Bistro, Vine and Olive, and Sweetgrass Cafe.
Find all of this year’s participating restaurants – and their special Restaurant Week menus – at the event’s website at inlanderrestaurantweek.com.
Note: through the event’s “Everyone Eats” initiative, a handful of participating restaurants will be including a donation line on their Restaurant Week bills to help raise money and meals for for Second Harvest.
Restaurant Week ends March 3.
