Question on pullman area
My wife and I are going to be moving to pullman (actually colfax) next month and I'm a little worried about the food scene. I know it's a small town and revolves around the university, so my hopes aren't too high. Please tell me everything you know about the restaurants/grocery stores/farmers' markets/CSAs in the area. I'm guessing we won't be driving to spokane for groceries.
There is a restaurant in Moscow called West of Paris that I've heard wonderful things about. I plan to make a little trip down this summer to check it out, let us know if you try it. And the Moscow coop and farmers market are great.
Another little oddity is a restaurant in Dayton (about 65 miles down the road from you) called Patit Creek. It's very surprising for the area and quite good.
I go through Colfax once or twice a year. As I recall, you're probably going to do most of your shopping in Pullman and Moscow. Moscow does have a coop and is kinda cute. Colfax is small town, though.
I know of a great butcher's shop in Lewiston, if that helps! And Spokane has some good eats. Pullman has fab ice cream on campus. Wish I knew more to pass along.
