I'll be in Spokane for about almost a week in a few months. I've done some searches here, but posts are older and since I'm not that familiar with territory, it's a little hard to figure out if I'm missing posts or not. I'll be alone most of the time and am looking for suggestions for lunch and dinner places. I will try to visit CDA one day, so it would be great to have 1 lunch and 1 dinner rec for there as well... maybe a "must go" rec. I have not done any research on CDA yet.
I'm looking for mostly American or seafood restaurants. Not fast food or chain unless it's a local small chain, and nothing bar-like since I don't drink alcohol. If ethnic, I'm more interested in Italian or Mexican but mostly would like something that's more local cuisine if such a thing. If there are places featured on Food Network that's really worthy of going, I'd like to know. And last of all, if there is a buffet, especially Chinese/Japanese, I'd like to go. It's for after a half marathon, so I won't feel bad indulging.
