Spokane suggestions?

My husband's headed to Spokane for 2 weeks next month. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. He's definitely an adventurous eater and likes all types of cuisines, but, having recently had surgery, milder ideas would be welcome as well. I found Chicken N' Mo and the deli in the de Leon Mexican market suggested in earlier posts--any other suggestions for the hungry guy?

  1. In the downtown area, some of my favorites are Mizuna, Nikko's, the restaurant in Hotel Lusso. I had a great dinner at Riverpoint Thai a few weeks ago. Clinkendagger's and Shenanigan's are popular steak/seafood places.

    1. Luna is very good:

      Wild Sage Bistro is very good:

      The White House Grill in Post Falls (approx. 30-min. drive from downtown) is also very good. Couldn't find a website.

      Also there's a sort of Chowhound-esque site for Spokane called "Taste Everything Once" which has a restaurant guide:

      1. I have ate at Clinkerdagger and it is wonderful! It is a little pricey, well it is between $20-50 per person not including drinks, but it was one of the best steaks I have ever had.
        The Onion is a great place for sandwichs, burgers or pasta & salad type foods and their prices are good. Burgers come with bottomless fries (and the fries are terrific) and they are about $7-9, pasta is about $10-15. I hear the Steamplant Grill is good too but have not yet tried it. There is a tiny place out on the 2 (Newport Highway) and Yale, cannot think of the name of it, but they sell sandwiches and salads and that place is fabulous also, it looks like a house but they sell some cheeses, beer, wine, lattes, cute, comfy place.

        1. i just went to dicks for the first time yesterday. the taste was no big deal but the prices were amazing. bring cash they dont do credit or checks.

          1. Milford's, Europa Pizzeria, The Elk, Huckleberry's deli counter (breakfast especially - get the blueberry pancakes), fish and chips at Zip's, the Mustard Seed, Peking North, the Thai place near Lincoln Heights. Geeze. I am so hungry now.

              And Taste of India on Division is great; the rice pudding is the best I've ever had. It tastes like fruity pebbles' milk after you're done eating them (I am aware this comment might not recommend it, but I like that sort of thing). The butter chicken is divine, and so's the biryani and tandoori chicken.
