Spokane has had some bad press here. I have reviewed most and not found a lot of places (how shall we say?) I am romping madly to try. Also we will be touring the area (Canada and US sides) say about a 200 mile radius from Spokane. Casting the net a bit wider any country eateries either side of the border? Things I particularly like (that I suspect might be there to be found) are Basque, local produce, and anything not just a pale attempt of the real McCoy (Jewish Deli in Spokane? I think not.). Not necessary anything fancy, just with a certain style and taste to their food. If the proprietor is manic about the stuff he/she puts out, so much the better.
I am always of the optimistic opinion that generally bad reports just mean Hounds are not looking for the right 'strong suit' in any given place or plain not trying hard enough. :-)
I will report back post trip, of course.
Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!
