Post Street Ale House. This floor to rafter renovation of the former Fugazzi space in the Hotel Lusso by Walt and Karen Worthy of the Davenport gives downtown Spokane a great English-style pub with a striking bar, twenty beers on tap, and a reasonably priced menu built around comfort food. We feel they do some of their fried food particularly well: the Halibut and Chips, the Fried Mozzarella “cubes,” and the Ale House Fried Pickles. If you are hungry, try the Guinness Braised Short Ribs served over mashed potatoes and topped with a pan gravy chunky with vegetables. 11 am – 2 am daily. N 1 Post Street. (509) 789-6900. $-$$

The Satellite Diner and Lounge. June 2011 Signature Dish. Colleen Freeman opened the Satellite Diner in 1998 to cater to service industry employees and the bar crowd who wanted a place to go and eat in the middle of the night.

The Two Seven. This South Hill neighborhood restau- rant was created by the owners of The Elk, Moontime, and The Porch. So, it’s no surprise that it has been a hit since day one.

Anthony’s At The Falls. A welcome addition to the local seafood scene, Anthony’s combines a spectacular view of the Spokane Falls with an unwavering commitment to fresh seafood.

The four course “Sunset Dinners” served Mon-Fri from 4-6 for only $18.95 are particularly good values. 510 N Lincoln.

Open seven days for


Milford’s Fish House. Milford’s has been doing sea- food since before seafood was cool, specializing in the importation and preparation of a wide variety of fresh fish. It is where many of us ever first encountered things like ahi, mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, escolar, or swordfish. Although there are now more choices in the area for fresh and intriguing seafood, Milford’s remains one of the best. A great meal can also be had from the bar menu in their comfortable, inviting and well-stocked bar. The dark, rich ambience of the beautiful old build- ing around the corner from the courthouse in which Milford’s is situated can’t be beat, either. Sun-Mon 4-9, Tues-Sat 5-10. 719 N Monroe.
