You’ll see this phrase, or its English translation — fixed price — repeatedly during Inlander Restaurant Week. Essentially, this means that there’s a flat fee for your meal — either $22 or $33 depending on the restaurant — and you get to pick from three different options for each of three courses. But don’t worry; if you want a tried-and-true favorite from the standard menu, restaurants will have their regular menus available.

Satisfy Your Cravings A
fter a wild, emotional and unprecedented past year-anda-half, we’re all craving something: public gatherings, festivals, seeing friends and family, travel and, perhaps most of all, dining out. While we could have completely cancelled Inlander Restaurant Week this year, one thing was ultimately clear: Our local restaurants still desperately need our help. Yes, life in the Washington state opened back up on June 30, but independent restaurants are still trying to catch up and make up for huge losses after being drastically restricted or completely closed for the better part of the last 17 months. Adding yet another challenge to restaurants’ recovery is the nation-wide worker shortage as thousands of former food service employees in all positions — cooks, servers, bartenders, dishwashers, hosts and more — left the industry to pursue new careers and opportunities. These staffing issues actually caused many would-be Inlander Restaurant Week 2021 participants to bow out as these establishments simply aren’t prepared for a huge rush of diners over the 10-day event. And in Coeur d’Alene where summer is peak tourism season, many eateries opted out because they’re already slammed. What that means for the 50-plus local eateries that are offering
incredible three-course menus during Restaurant Week is that at times, diners might encounter longer waits for tables (make reservations in advance!) or even for orders to come out from the kitchen. So please, be patient and understanding. Food service workers have unjustly taken the brunt of so much public outrage over everything from supply chain shortages to state-mandated health rules totally out of their control. These myriad hurdles faced by hospitality workers during the pandemic is why this year’s Inlander Restaurant Week nonprofit beneficiary is Big Table. The locally based organization that aids hospitality workers in crisis served as a vital lifeline this past year when demand for direct financial support skyrocketed. Diners can donate directly to Big Table while out for Restaurant Week by scanning a QR code printed on this year’s menus. While 2021’s Inlander Restaurant Week is obviously going to look and feel different on many fronts, the date change also has plenty of benefits. For one, it’s summer and that means patio dining! Second, it’s the peak of our region’s growing season, which gives our area’s talented chefs an opportunity to showcase so many fresh, local ingredients on their menus, from fruit grown at Green Bluff to fresh-caught seafood and so much more. Get out there and satisfy your cravings!

Recipe for Success
Menus are also online for easy browsing at InlanderRestaurantWeek.com
It’s a good idea to make reservations
PICK A RESTAURANT AND GO. You don’t have to do anything ahead of time, although it’s a good idea to make reservations. Then just head on over to the restaurant.
EAT. Each restaurant’s menu has three courses included in your meal, with three options for each course.
There’s nothing more frustrating than showing up at that restaurant you’ve been eager to try, only to be told the wait is 60 minutes. Instead, call ahead. All of the menus in this guide indicate whether the restaurant takes reservations. If the restaurant is booked when you call, see if they take online reservations. Sometimes restaurants that use reservation tools like Open Table have tables set aside specifically for those bookings. For high-demand restaurants, consider an early (4:30 or 5 pm) or late seating (after 8 pm) or book a midweek dinner.
The menus are ﬁxed price, which means you know the price ahead of time. Each restaurant’s menu costs either $22 or $33.
Restaurant workers were hit hard by the pandemic. If you want to serve up some hope to the people serving you during Inlander Restaurant Week, here are three easy ways to help.
BE SOCIAL. Share your dining experience on social media. Use the hashtag #InlanderRestaurantWeek.
1. Make a donation to Big Table. When you go out to eat during Inlander Restaurant Week, your custom three-course menu will have a QR code on it. Scan it, and make a donation to Big Table. Big Table cares for restaurant and hospitality workers in crisis through timely interventions, intentional relationships and transformational care. 2. Carry loaded unexpected 20s. This is probably the most fun you will ever have with a $20 bill. Request an envelope from Big Tables website, or download a do-it-yourself template to create your own. Load it with a $20 bill, then watch for an opportunity to give it to someone at a restaurant not as a tip, but as a gift. Give it to your server, or the busser or ask someone on staff who is having a hard week, and ask to have this gift delivered to them.
PAY (AND TIP). You already know the cost of your meal, but you may have ordered drinks or other items. And don’t forget to tip!
3. Write receipt notes. With your tip, write a personalized “thank you” on the restaurant copy of the receipt using your server’s name. Not only will they see it, but their manager will see it too when the receipts are reconciled.
REPEAT STEPS 1-4. Until this year’s Restaurant Week ends Aug. 28.
UPGRADE. Some places may have add-ons or upgrades for a clearly marked additional cost.
DRINK UP. Restaurants all carry local libations: wine, beer, cider and spirits.
Key to the Menus GF / GFA / V / V+
This year, more restaurants than ever before are offering options for the gluten-free, vegetarians or vegans. We even spotted some keto-friendly designations on menus! So how do you make sense of it all? GF means the dish is gluten-free. GFA means the dish can be prepared, by request, gluten-free. V stands for vegetarian, while V+ means the dish is vegan, or can be prepared vegan by request.
Local just tastes better. While Inlander Restaurant Week aims to support our awesome local chefs and

three-course meal is being served? The hours the Restaurant Week menu is offered are listed right on the menu. These aren’t the hours the restaurant is open, but strictly when they are making their Inlander Restaurant Week meal available.
If you don’t see Reservations Recommended noted in red on a menu, then that restaurant doesn’t take them. But if they do, make the call now. Some high-demand restaurants may book up even before Restaurant Week begins.
While we intended Inlander Restaurant Week to be primarily a dinner event, more restaurants than ever before are now offering their three-course meal all day. So how do you know when the

6 INLANDER RESTAURANT WEEK 2021
NLANDER RESTAURANT WEEK was codeveloped by the Inlander and Visit Spokane, along with support from other community partners, and first launched in February 2013. The vision was clear — highlight our region’s amazing restaurants, innovative chefs and build up our culinary community. Since then the food scene in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene region has continued to strengthen. Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020, was the last day of the eighth year of Inlander Restaurant Week. It had been the most successful one to date, but our region was just days away from the start of the pandemic. Faced with the challenge of COVID-19, the Inlander worked to form community partnerships in an effort to help area businesses in whatever ways were possible, including an emphasis on one of the hardest hit business categories — restaurants. Ultimately, the Inlander’s business and marketing teams partnered with public and private institutions and were tasked with supporting area businesses through the eight-month BACK TO BUSINESS CAMPAIGN. The campaign directly supported over 1,000 businesses and included publishing (in print and online) three Restaurant Guides — each featuring over 150 different restaurants, with no cost for the participants. By the end of 2020, it had become clear that area restaurants were in no position to host a full restaurant-weekstyle event in its usual late February timeframe. Inlander
Restaurant Week’s longtime presenting sponsor, STCU, agreed it wasn’t going to work, but asked the question “What could we do to support area restaurants?” What came next was remarkable. Fourteen communityminded banks and credit unions put aside competition and came together to underwrite THE GREAT DINE OUT. From March 12-27, more than 160 Spokane-Coeur d’Alene area restaurants were able to participate at no cost in this special restaurant event featuring their signature dishes and fan favorites. The Inlander published a special event guide, with a feature on every participant, that was circulated across the region. The possibility of a traditional Inlander Restaurant Week in 2021 remained open, but scheduling options were limited and full reopening guidance was unclear. While it was apparent there would be unknowns to contend with, hosting the ninth annual event seemed like the right thing to do. So, for the first (and possibly only) time, we present the summer edition of Inlander Restaurant Week! While the 2021 event features fewer participants than usual — many restaurants are still finding their balance after the rollercoaster of the pandemic — there are amazing restaurants ready to host you and some truly outstanding menus for diners to enjoy. And, looking forward, the dates are already set for the 10th anniversary Inlander Restaurant Week, presented by STCU: Feb. 24-March 5, 2022.

CAUGHT OUR EYE
Take Comfort Consider yourself a “meat-and-potatoes” type? Consider yourself satisfied AS THE TRYING LAST COUPLE OF YEARS have taught many of us, sometimes we just want a meal that makes us full, happy, and perhaps full of positive memories or associations. It could be something super simple. And while many of us make versions of our personal comfort-food classics at home, why not get a deluxe version from a cooking professional instead? Case in point: PROHIBITION GASTROPUB is offering up a blue cheese lasagna during Inlander Restaurant Week that has our mouths watering at the mere idea of it. The same goes for GILDED UNICORN’s tater tot casserole; you might have a similar casserole recipe in your home arsenal, but I guarantee it’s not going to satisfy the same way. The RED TAIL GRILL at Coeur d’Alene Casino is stepping up with some international comfort eats with a poutine dish, while their neighbor at the casino, CHINOOK, is offering a stick-to-your-ribs pasta dish with
Corned beef and cabbage from Shawn O’Donnell’s American Grill and Irish Pub

their bucatini carbonara. THE MELTING POT always feels decadent, and their Restaurant Week loaded baked potato served with cheddar cheese fondue is comfort food for all ages. BARNWOOD SOCIAL KITCHEN & TAVERN likewise has goodies that will please everyone from the toddler to the grandparent thanks to a menu including totchos (yes, tater tot nachos) and mac-n-cheese. Several spots are offering comfort-food desserts that beg for your attention. At REPUBLIC KITCHEN & TAPHOUSE in Post Falls, a caramel root beer float is the perfect dessert after a twice-fried chicken sandwich. DAS STEINHAUS in North Spokane has a Black Forest cake on their menu, and REMEDY really takes the cake with their brookie dessert, a brutally delicious blend of cookie and brownie with a marshmallow creme center served with a scoop of ice cream and other goodies. You’ll definitely want to leave room for that one.
Season’s Treatings At the peak of the Inland Northwest’s summer harvest, fresh, locally grown ingredients abound IN A “NORMAL” YEAR, Inlander Restaurant Week is a bright spot of an otherwise totally dreary season, the tail end of winter when everything is wet, cold and gray. This year, however, the timing is ripe for, well, the ripest, freshest local produce many chefs can get their hands on. From regionally foraged huckleberries to palm-sized heirloom tomatoes, here’s the cream of local crops. We’ll start with dessert first, because, why not? That purple gem of the Northwest, the mountain huckleberry, is listed on so many menus this year, from a milkshake at HERITAGE BAR & KITCHEN to classic huckleberry cheesecake served at HONEY EATERY & SOCIAL CLUB and many more. Other locally grown fruits star in this culinary show, too, including the fresh peaches in a peach-huckleberry crostata at CHINOOK, and in REMEDY KITCHEN & TAVERN’S peach panna cotta with fresh mint. Definitely count us in, too, for IRON GOAT BREWING’S peach cobbler ice cream sandwich, and their Rainier cherry panna cotta. Working backwards from dessert, DURKIN’S LIQUOR BAR is serving up a delightful melange of local produce in its summer panzanella salad with croutons from sister eatery Madeleine’s, fresh peaches, cherry tomatoes, a mint pistou and burrata. SCRATCH RESTAURANT also has a standout summer salad of fresh, seedless watermelon, pickled red onions, jicama, feta and cilantro, with a light, bright lime vinaigrette. We also noticed Scratch is serving a fresh cherry ice cream made from Green Bluff fruit. Heirloom tomatoes in all their colorful glory are always carefully plated so as to let their incredible flavor shine in the hands of chef Tony Brown, who’s got them on the menu both at STELLA’S and RUINS as two different salads. Another of several spots taking advantage of this locally grown bounty is FLYING GOAT, which has heirlooms topping its Heroy pizza with basil pesto sauce.

CAUGHT OUR EYE
Tasty Eats for All Gluten-free, vegan and vegetarianFriendly eats that go way beyond salad AS TIME’S GONE ON, dishes that are vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or cater to other dietary needs have become so commonplace they’re now standard. In fact, since the first Inlander Restaurant Week in 2013, we’ve asked participating restaurants to serve at least three vegetarian items, one from each course, on their menus. Now, restaurants don’t need to be told; they just do it to make sure all customers can enjoy a meal out. Among the many, many options for incredible food sans meat, animal products or gluten, here are a handful that caught our attention. At THAI BAMBOO’S four area locations, nearly all of its menu is — thanks to the nature of Thai cuisine — gluten free, like the Favorite’s Platter, a combo of two popular dishes: phad Thai and cashew nut noodles. While traditional ramen is known for its hours-long broth-making process made from pork bones, vegetarian versions can be just as delightful. Enter NUDO RAMEN HOUSE’S secondcourse vegetable ramen, consisting of fresh kale noodles and tons of veggies in soy-miso broth. Non-meat burgers have come a long way in the past decade, both commercially and via creative chef-crafted recipes. Take BARK, A RESCUE PUB’S portobello mushroom burger (it’s gluten free and vegan) with hummus and feta, for example, or IRON GOAT BREWING’S all-vegan patty, also made from mushrooms, plus beets and quinoa. Speaking of meat-free eats, HERITAGE BAR & KITCHEN also stopped us in our tracks with its Dr. Pepper chili, made with Impossible Burger’s ground faux-beef and, yes, Dr. Pepper soda for that rich flavor. On the gluten-free front, options abound at AMBROSIA BISTRO in Spokane Valley. They’re serving a chicken carnitas tostada, pork medallions, mushroom chicken and a flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Mediterranean-inspired eats, like the fare at 2021 newcomer BABA from chef Adam Hegsted, are often vegan and/or gluten-free. Try Baba’s crispy falafel with tzatziki sauce, tahini and fresh cucumber salad. While its focus is pasta, another newcomer in 2021, TAVOLATA, has several gluten-free course offerings: Roasted beet salad, a black cod entree with Manila clams and seasonal sorbetto.
10 INLANDER RESTAURANT WEEK 2021
Deep Dive Seafood options abound, from old favorites and hot new spots WE’RE SPOILED ROTTEN in the Inland Northwest when it comes to seafood at our region’s restaurants. Being mere hours from the coast has its benefits for sure, and during Inlander Restaurant Week there are ample opportunities to partake in a fishy feast. Several of the region’s most beloved dining spots earned that love for the way they treat seafood. ANTHONY’S comes immediately to mind, and their fresh wild silver salmon risotto is sure to be a highlight this year. CASPER FRY brings a little spice with their Cajun seafood boil, a perfect match for the steamy weather. DURKIN’S, always a perfect place for a cocktail and a bite, is delivering Washington clams on toast, an ideal dish as either an appetizer or shareable. EUROPA, always a killer spot for restaurant week, has smoked salmon tortellini at the ready. Several of the area’s newer restaurants are

embracing seafood on their Inlander Restaurant Week menus, meaning you have the perfect opportunity to try something new on a night you’re not hitting an old fave. Italian-themed TAVOLATA is serving up black cod and Manila clams right across the street from Riverfront Park in downtown Spokane. Chef Adam Hegsted’s Meditterranean pivot during the pandemic turned Wandering Table into BABA, where you’ll find clams and lamb — a delightful combo. VIEUX CARRE, a New Orleansflavored new spot in Spokane, is doing a locally sourced crawfish boil (ask for extra napkins), as well as baconwrapped shrimp and grits (because adding bacon never made a dish worse, even a seafood dish). SHAWN O’DONNELL’S might already be on your radar for their fish ’n’ chips, but don’t sleep on their hearty Donegal Bay clam chowder during restaurant week. It pairs nicely with a pint of Guinness.

New Flavors and Faces Meet seven recently opened restaurants participating in Inlander Restaurant Week for the first time
he beautiful thing about Inlander Restaurant Week is that there are sure to be newcomers, which keeps things fresh for diners and gives restaurants an opportunity to introduce themselves. Sometimes, it’s a re-introduction, as places cycle in and out of participating, depending on what else they’ve got going. This year, the new participants list lets diners explore the culinary traditions of the Mediterranean and the Big Easy, get a taste of a westside superstar’s take on Italian cuisine and — maybe — meet a new forever friend of the four-legged variety.
Many countries use the word “baba” as a term of endearment, especially for dad, so let’s just call Adam Hegsted of Eat Good Group the homegrown father of innovative restaurants. Try his mashup of Mediterranean-inspired comfort foods like the deviled eggs served in other Hegsted locales, this time with tahini and an Egyptian spice known as dukkah.

12 INLANDER RESTAURANT WEEK 2021
BARK, A RESCUE PUB
It’s a win-win for everyone on two legs or four at this unique pub, which allows diners to interact with dogs and cats in a separate but accessible area. “We are excited to introduce our menu and unique restaurant concept to Spokane and hopefully see a lot of animals find their forever homes,” says Josh Wade, who opened Bark with partner Katie Holmes last year.
BOSCO PASTA & PANINI
Head to the Wonder Building for house-made pasta that’s the heart of this charming new eatery from Seattle-based Ethan Stowell Restaurant Group. Never had gnocchi? Try that or a classic panini, a special kind of grilled sandwich that is all about the crispy exterior and ooey-gooey interior.
This Spokane Valley eatery is off the rails — literally. Dine in the vintage locomotive and enjoy their version of German sausage, pulled pork tacos or the unusual smoked chicken bowl with choice of side and Texas toast.
SOUTH PERRY LANTERN
For fans of the Perry District, there are good vibes emanating from the South Perry Lantern just based on its long history as a café and taphouse. It’s great for people-watching, so park yourself near the window and try the smoked oysters and their version of a French dip using roasted duck breast. For the third course, you can go traditional — cookies and ice cream — or adult: a glass of wine or craft beer. Our kind of place!
To much fanfare, this celebrated westside eatery debuted in Spokane’s Old City Hall building recently and, by a stroke of luck, during this summer’s Inlander Restaurant Week diners can try a show-stopping Tavolata meal for a modest price. How about black cod with clams and caponata or scratch-made spaghetti known as tonnarelli? And you know the Italian-themed desserts are going to be heavenly.
VIEUX CARRE NOLA KITCHEN
New Orleans, aka the Big Easy, is the inspiration for this newly opened eatery, whose name translates to “old square.” With Mardi Gras months away still, here’s your opportunity to experience Cajun-country classics like crawfish, jambalaya and grits with bacon-wrapped shrimp.

Eye on the Gem State North Idaho’s IRW participants are fewer this time, but offer a delightful range
t’s a long-standing observation that there are two seasons in resort areas like Coeur d’Alene and the surrounding scenic North Idaho: tourist season and the other threequarters of the year. That makes for a tough merge into heavy summer traffic for this year’s Inlander Restaurant Week, yet the handful of participants will not disappoint.
Bardenay naturally is known for its craft cocktails. In fact, most of the Coeur d’Alene restaurant’s drinks feature its own house-distilled spirits. During Restaurant Week, the entrees includes pulled pork sliders and salsa verde steak.

CHINOOK CRAFTED BY CHEF ADAM HEGSTED & RED TAIL BAR & GRILL
Thai ribs from Thai Bamboo
It’s one location with two great dining options at the Coeur d’Alene Resort & Casino. RED TAIL is a family-friendly spot with a low-key vibe, where your three-course options include a house-smoked brisket burger with applewood bacon. CHINOOK, meanwhile, offers an upbeat fine-dining experience focused on serving the very best ingredients in interesting ways. How about a gorgeous free-form pie with peach and huckleberry called a crostata for dessert? And hey, stay overnight at the casino and you can try both places!
HONEY EATERY & SOCIAL CLUB
Honey combines the best of an historic downtown Coeur d’Alene building remodeled to house a fun, modern eatery. Honey focuses on updated classics like deviled eggs with candied bacon or a breakfast poutine with Idaho fries you’ll want to eat any time of the day. Dine outdoors, downstairs in the groovy lounge or upstairs among the funky artwork and buzz of a busy kitchen. Speaking of buzz, don’t forget the craft cocktails.
REPUBLIC KITCHEN & TAPHOUSE
Upscale pub food in a cozy house-styled pub is what you get at Republic, which features local and regional beer and cider on tap. Pair the Trailbreaker cider with the bacon Monte Cristo or the twicefried chicken sammie. And for dessert, embrace your inner kiddo with scratch-made doughnuts or
a decadent brownie topped with salted caramel ice cream. Yes, please!
Although the balance of their four locations are in Washington, the Coeur d’Alene Thai Bamboo is much beloved. Bring some friends and try everything, knowing you’re getting the same authentic Thai food locals have been raving about for 20 years. In fact, one of your options is called the Favorite Platter with both phad thai and cashew nut.

ast year as the pandemic shattered the restaurant and hospitality industry from top to bottom, one nonprofit that started here in Spokane over a decade ago was ready to help. Big Table — which now has care teams not just here, but in Seattle, San Diego and Nashville — launched in 2009 for a simple reason. There wasn’t a single nonprofit nationally caring for those working in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Not one. Out of 1.5 million nonprofits registered with the IRS.
and mouth cancer and then walking alongside him through a long painful recovery. “Big Table gave me hope, support, love and a second chance on life. No way I would have beat stage-4 cancer without this amazing group of people,” Jadyn says, adding that the worst part ironically was after the cancer was beaten — the challenge of putting his life back together. “And Big Table has always been there for all of that, too,” he says.
NEED HIDDEN BEHIND SMILES
During the height of the pandemic, the needs of those in the industry were wellcovered by news reports. Yet the underlying causes that have kept nearly half of those working in restaurants and hotels barely above the official poverty line for decades have not gone away as the economy reopens. With this poverty comes so much more — some of the highest levels of addiction, chronic stress, pervasive mental health struggles and broken relationships. The result for so many in the industry is hopelessness. “What we really do is serve hope,” says Kevin Finch, the executive director and founder of Big Table.
The reason this statistic is so stunning is that the restaurant and hospitality industry is one of the largest in the nation. It is also the lowest rung on the employment ladder, so it concentrates all of the most vulnerable demographics in our community: single parents, at-risk teens, immigrants, income-insecure seniors, those rebuilding their lives after incarceration. What Big Table does is straightforward: respond quickly to crisis needs and then provide ongoing relational support and mentoring. For Jadyn, a server at Masselow’s, that meant helping with basic expenses when he was diagnosed with stage-four throat
BEYOND THE PANDEMIC
GIVING LOCALLY FOR CRISIS NEEDS
Even though Big Table is growing nationally with a vision to be in 10 cities by 2029, if you give financially to Big Table, your gift stays here locally to meet critical practical needs. Think rent to keep a family from being evicted, groceries to keep a family fed while a parent is unable to work, support to see a therapist, a bus pass or car repair to keep someone from losing their job, or in Robbie’s case, new teeth. Robbie was a cook and an Inland Northwest Culinary Academy student who had a meth problem that left his teeth severely rotted. Although he had been sober for 10 years, his teeth kept him stuck in his job, hiding his teeth and eternally labeled an addict. His teacher at the culinary school referred Robbie to Big Table because he was “the greatest guy, he just needs teeth.” Big Table was able to help give Robbie a new set of teeth, and today Robbie smiles without a care and has a thriving career in graphic design. “To have someone pull me out of that darkness is something I will never forget,” Robbie says.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT
“I love that Big Table started here in the Inland Northwest,” Finch says, “but the same needs we see locally are in every city in the country. So we are working to build a movement, not just an organization.” If you eat out or occasionally stay in a hotel, Big Table wants you to become part of this movement to care. “You start the second you realize that so many of those most in need locally serve you when you go out,” says Chris Deitz, Big Table’s Spokane city director. “Then you simply look for ways to let them know you care.” Big Table has a whole page on their website (big-table.com) of ways you can engage immediately. “Try simply tipping well and adding a brief note of thanks or a compliment on your receipt,” Finch suggests. “Or give one of the staff a Big Table ‘Unexpected 20.’” An Unexpected 20 is a lot like what you might guess — a $20 bill that is a surprise. You put it into a small envelope from Big Table that thanks the person for their work and lets them know you noticed them. You can request pre-printed envelopes from Big Table or print out a DIY version from the website. “As a former chef, I try to give them to dishwashers or bussers, cooks or hosts … those that don’t usually get tipped … or I ask my server that I’m tipping well to give it to the co-worker who is struggling the most,” Deitz says. “If you go out during Restaurant Week,” says Finch, “know that nearly every restaurant now is massively understaffed and give them grace. And let them know you know it is challenging.” Learn more about Big Table and how you can get involved by visiting big-table.com.

INLANDER RESTAURANT WEEK 2021 17
MEET YOUR CHEF
Michael Wiley Chef & Owner: Wiley’s Downtown Bistro, Prohibition Gastropub, Wiley’s Catering Co.
ichael Wiley became a chef by accident, but chose to be a restaurateur on purpose. Since he was a kid, he’s been involved in front of house service in the hospitality industry, yet he always knew he wanted his own restaurant. When Wiley finally got his own place, the chef he hired didn’t work out. Having seen Wiley put in so much time and effort in the kitchen already, his team said, “Why don’t you just do it?!” So he did. Wiley’s Downtown Bistro and his catering company thrived, then last year, in the middle of the pandemic, Wiley also became the owner of Prohibition Gastropub. RESTAURANT WEEK: What is your culinary vision and philosophy? WILEY: Our global philosophy and vision is to create positive energy through culinary service and libation experiences in a world-class environment. It’s really just trying to make people feel good and creating something positive out of giving somebody good food. How do you challenge yourself to stay creative in the kitchen? I’m always looking for challenges! I’m also looking at what’s fresh, what’s out there right now. Finding ingredients I haven’t cooked with before. The biggest way, though, is asking my team what they want to play with. I look to the ebb and flow of who I have working with me, what flavor profiles and experiences they’re

bringing to the table, and then investigating that. It’s a collaboration with what the rest of the world wants and then seeing how I can make it happen. What’s special about the region’s culinary scene right now? The absolute tenacity of the people in this industry. Yeah, we’re out of the pandemic, but can you name one restaurant that’s fully staffed up — one restaurant that’s in a position of comfort right now, who can actually take their energy and focus on creativity? There’s not one of them. Everyone is pushing themselves past the point of comfort, past the point of exhaustion and still finding the energy to be creative, to take care of their staff, clients and guests with grace. I could talk about the food, but it is so secondary to the effort that’s being put out there. Who is your culinary influence and why? The greatest culinary influence I ever had was not in food. His name was Will Barron Jr. He was the Spokane Club maitre d’ for 46 years, my first boss in this industry and the greatest person I ever met. Everything I do in the kitchen is a reflection of the lessons that he taught me on the floor working with clients. Because my background is front of house, I’m driven by the philosophy of taking care of my team members, and [that] my guests are taken care of means I’m taken care of.
A Bootlegger Burger with fries. What was the most crucial thing you learned over the past year that will carry you into the future in the hospitality industry? The most crucial thing I’ve ever learned in the restaurant industry is don’t worry about the details. Worry about taking care of the guests. Worry about taking care of your team members. Everything else will take care of itself. What are you looking forward to during Inlander Restaurant Week? Having Restaurant Week during peak produce season really opens up the opportunity for us to play with ingredients in the true heart of what the event is supposed to be about: supporting local food, local ingredients, local distilleries, wineries… I love it and thrive in the chaos and action.

ari Bork’s dream was to go to law school. Throughout college and after, she worked in restaurants and tended bar. She assumed she would eventually pursue her real dream, but this industry has a way of sucking you in and keeping you there. After a while, she realized that what she enjoyed about the idea of being an attorney was immersing herself in stories. As a bartender, she’d listened to and gathered many great stories, and ended up falling in love with the restaurant business. After working at Scratch for owner Connie Naccarato for 12 years, Bork was presented with the opportunity to buy the restaurant in 2019. It was a natural transition, and the journey has been educational. RESTAURANT WEEK: How do you challenge yourself and your team to stay creative in the kitchen and the industry? BORK: Sometimes creativity happens for me! I give my chef the freedom to be creative and express himself, and he’s been great. He’s been shopping around at Green Bluff and using that creative flow to put together something for Restaurant Week that is really unique. Throughout the pandemic, we just tried to stay relevant even though our fine dining menu didn’t necessarily “take out” as well as we wanted it to. We tried to present our experience in a new way, and I listened to people because there’s always someone who will spark something in me. What’s special about the region’s culinary scene right now? Right now as restaurants reopen, they’re feeling more creative and like they can do things a little bit differently. It’s
almost like a chance to start over with a unique idea or a different concept, a restart. People are also so eager to get out! They’re happier and more patient because they’re thrilled to not be in their homes. Everyone is excited, including our crew. What are the biggest challenges you faced over the past year, and how did you overcome them? I just never let it stop us. It wasn’t something that ultimately was going to end us, because I wasn’t going to let that happen. We’ve also had so much support from the community. Even on days when I thought we weren’t going to be able to do this, there was always someone who reminded me that we were going to be fine. No one wanted us to fail. That was big for me. Looking to the future, how do you think the industry will shift because of the pandemic? People really embraced to-go drinks, meal kits and meals-to-go during this time. I think we’ll see more restaurants putting together little meal kits and people cooking more at home with ingredients that they get from a restaurant. I think there will be more cooking classes, but there will also be a greater appreciation for nights out — because we’re never going to forget this past year. We’ve all learned a lot about what makes restaurants work — it’s the people. What are you most looking forward to during Inlander Restaurant Week? I think it’s so fun! People love it and come out to experience something new. You get a good variety, and I’m excited to see what our menu holds this year!
Local Alliances Emerging from the restrictions of COVID, No-Li owner John Bryant reflects on small business’s role in the community
efore speaking about the importance of “drinking local,” John Bryant issues a clarification. “For this, I mean it’s important to drink locally owned,” the co-founder of No-Li Brewhouse stresses. “We have to consider whether the money raised by a business is staying in Spokane.” This is not a minor scruple. COVID-19 brought into focus something that business owners in Spokane have long understood: Every piece of this town’s economy is connected to every other piece. While throughout the pandemic the refrain “shop local” has been reiterated enough times to make it into a kind of truism, there is something incredibly potent to be grasped from understanding what local alliances look like in practice. For Bryant, this focus on the relationality of all the businesses in town has affected everything from his outreach efforts to his hiring practices to his relationships with the other businesses on Hamilton Street. “We all share customers and help each other,” he says. “If one of us is full, then we send them to the other, and vice versa.” Each step of the way, No-Li has forged new partnerships and strengthened pre-existing bonds. “COVID taught us that if you engage and you’re open and your intent is to bring people together, then things start clicking,” Bryant says. “I hope the community has seen that we didn’t give up, that COVID made us all better, because we’re so interdependent. Those who fought it out and were lucky enough to stay open had to have those survival skills.” One of these survival skills is simple: creating better, more varied drinks. In this regard, an eye toward improving craft has really paid off. New, summer-appropriate No-Li thirst quenchers such as a huckleberry lemonade seltzer, a canned mojito, and the Threezy Does It Low Cal Hazy IPA are available to sip outside on the brewhouse’s award-winning patio along the river. The patio has become even more immaculate since COVID, when No-Li decided not to serve food anymore. In doing so, Bryant and his team hope that more people will funnel through their space, have a beer by the water, and then move on to wherever the city’s current takes them for food or more drinks. “It’s not a zero-sum game,” he says. “We have to be a draw point to get more people into the city, so everyone does well. We’re not trying to hog any customer; we’re trying to create more of them.”
Bottoms Up Refreshing summer beverages stand out on menus’ Drink Local section IF DRINKING ON PATIOS this summer is your aim, Inlander Restaurant Week has you covered. Most of the following recommendations are from participating venues’ Drink Local section, a portion of the menu highlighting local spirits, wine, beer, cider and seltzer producers. While most of these drinks aren’t included with your meal, we also noticed a few places that have a beverage or two as a third-course option (TWIGS and GILDED UNICORN included). Seasonal flavors abound amongst ABOVE this year’s Drink Local offerings, like the Watermelon uber-refreshing watermelon martini ($8) made with WARRIOR LIQUOR’S vodka martini from the at BLACK PEARL CASINO. The local Black Pearl distillery’s creations are also on display at the BACKYARD PUBLIC HOUSE, which is offering two summer cocktails featuring Warrior’s flavored vodkas: a tropical margarita ($9) and a huckleberry lemonade spritz ($8). House spirits — rum, gin and vodka, to be specific — are naturally on the menu at BARDENAY in Coeur d’Alene. The distillery-pub’s beverage highlights are a ginger rum cocktail ($7), the Basil Instinct ($8) and Bardenay Bond ($7.50) There’s little else that can compete with an ice cold pint of beer on a hot summer day, so if that’s more your style, we’ve got you covered, too. Can’t decide which of the many outstanding, locally made craft beers to order? No sweat at the MELTING POT, which offers a flight of three ($10) NO-LI BREWHOUSE IPAs, each in six-ounce pours. STELLA’S is keeping things local, too, with featured brews from YAYA, LUMBERBEARD and BLACK LABEL. IRON GOAT BREWING is naturally serving up some of its latest creations, including a farmhouse ale, bourbon barrel-aged porter and Northwest hazy IPA. Cocktails in a can are great for a day at the lake or night around the campfire, but they also happen to pair well with the menu at FAI’S NOODLE HOUSE at Northern Quest Resort & Casino. The pan-Asian spot is serving three varieties of DRY FLY DISTILLING’S popular canned cocktails for just $6 each. If you prefer wine, many spots are offering bottle specials, like EUROPA’S house Myropa Red ($44), a special blend created by COEUR D’ALENE CELLARS. Meanwhile, SMOKERIDGE BBQ is using ARBOR CREST’S red blend in its house sangria ($8/glass).

22 INLANDER RESTAURANT WEEK 2021
Opera by Christoph Willibald Gluck
Counting Crows: The Bay Area band has been delivering poprock hits for three decades as of 2021, and songs like “Mr. Jones” and “A Long December” have proven timeless. Frontman Adam Duritz and company will be headlining Spokane’s newest music venue, the Spokane Pavilion in Riverfront Park, on Aug. 28, and will be joined by openers Matt Sucich and Sean Barna. Visit spokanepavilion.com for tickets and info.
Downtown Spokane shopping: River Park Square, the mall just south of Riverfront Park, is the central shopping attraction, featuring mainstays like Nordstrom, Banana Republic and the Apple Store. Anthropologie, Free People and Lululemon are right across the street, too. But don’t miss the independent bookstore, Auntie’s, or Boo Radley’s, where the quirkiest, strangest and most Spokane items reside, along with the Flour Mill building offerings across the river like the Kitchen Engine and Wonders of the World.
Downtown Coeur d’Alene shopping: As a tourist town, Coeur d’Alene is perfectly prepared for visitors. Kids will love scampering about Figpickels Toy Emporium, culture lovers will want to see the paintings and sculptures at the Art Spirit Gallery or the new Emerge gallery space, while bargain hunters will want to seek out the smattering of thrift shops along Fourth Street. And if music is your thing, be sure to hit the Long Ear record shop on Government Way.

Go to inlandnwaletrail.com to get the map of more than 30 regional brewers, and pick what sounds good.
