Scout. Reviewed June 2012. This restaurant and bar on the first floor of the historic Montvale Hotel serves up both pub and diner classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a few upscale twists.

Pool and darts back by the bar. 7 am – 11 pm Sun – Thu; 7 am – 2 am Fri – Sat. 1001 West First Avenue in Spokane. (509) 747-3434. $-$$


Sidebar And Grill. Signature Dish June 2012. This recently remodeled neighborhood pub and sportsbar across the street from the Spokane County courthouse has a great goopy Reuben, possibly the best sweet potato fries in town, and a upscale ham-n-cheddar (the Sidebar Special) that comes topped with sautéed pears. One bite and the verdict is obvious: it works. Nothing over $12, twelve beers on tap, and a variety of Washington wines.

The Two Seven. This South Hill neighborhood restaurant 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. Offering unique menu items as well as favorites from the other restaurants (including the corn pasta and infamous Caesar Soft Taco) you will certainly not be disappointed. The wine list is extensive for what may be considered pub-like fare and they have 17 microbrews on tap, which are always phenomenal. The patio seating is always in high demand, but you get the neighborhood-pub feel on the inside as well. 2727 South Mt Vernon #5. Open seven days 11-11. (509) 473-9766. $-$$


SEAFOOD AND FISH


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. So much so that they operate their own fishing company for the sole purpose of supplying their restaurants. The success of this shows up in the always available, rich and flavorful seafood fettuccine and clam chowder, as well as on the fresh sheet. The four course “Sunset Dinners” served Mon-Fri from 4-6 for only $18.95 are particularly good values. 510 N Lincoln. Lunch Mon-Sat 11:30-3, Bar Menu in Lounge Mon-Sat 3-4, Dinner Mon-Thurs 4-9:30, Fri-Sat 4-10:30, Sun 3-9:30, Sunday Brunch (breakfast/lunch menu) 11-2pm, Happy Hour Mon-Fri 4-6 with half- price appetizers and drink specials.

Milford’s Fish House. Milford’s has been doing seafood 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 building 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. (509) 326-7251. $$-$$$


Regal Street Seafood. Heather and Phil Lazone from Northstar Seafoods opened Regal Street as a retail fish market, but the staff includes a trained chef sho can give you cooking guidance and prepares several ready-to-eat options like Cioppino – an Italian fish stew – and fish tacos.

STEAK HOUSES Cedars Floating Restaurant. See the entry under Seafood.


Churchill’s Steakhouse. Reviewed April 2011. Carved into the first floor and basement of the Joel Building is this temple dedicated to dry-aged USDA Prime steaks and possibly the only ground Prime burger in the region (it is brilliant and shows up weekly in the basement bar as a $7 special). The dining room has all the pomp and circumstance for a great celebration meal (and prices to match) while the bar below has the intimate feel of a high class club and a separate menu with a few lighter items not offered upstairs. Open daily: 4 – 9 pm on Sun, 4 – 10 pm Mon to Thur, and 4 – 11 pm Fri and Sat. 165 South Post in Spokane. (509) 474- 9888. www.churchillssteakhouse.com $$-$$$$
