He teaches us to cook using the science behind the food, now Alton Brown wants you tell him where to eat! The Good Eats and Cutthroat Kitchen host brings his live show Eat Your Science to Spokane on Wednesday, March 29, and he’s asking for your favorite Spokane eateries.

Using #ABRoadEatsSpokane you can tell Alton Brown where he should eat, and then see where he ends up – and what he ate -- once he’s here.

Here are our suggestions for Brown on his quest for good eats in Spokane.

Saranac Commons:

It’s one of the coolest spots in Spokane that you haven’t been to yet! We suggest making a stop for breakfast. Grab a fresh made morning pastry from Common Crumb Artisan Bakery, owned by James Beard nominated chef Jeremy Hansen and his wife Kate, and then swing over to Caffe Affogato for a handcrafted espresso to pair with it.

Zona Blanca:

It’s the hottest new spot in town. Top Chef contestant Chad White cooks up fresh-made ceviche, tortas and tostadas prepared to order right in front of you. The flavors are bold, fresh and fun. Try the Doriloco, a Mexico City street snack made with nacho cheese Doritos, gummy bears and other culinary treasures. Do you even ceviche, bro? 

Queen of Sheba:

Did you know Spokane has an Ethiopian restaurant? We do and it’s delicious. Tucked away in the historic Flour Mill, Queen of Sheba serves up authentic Ethiopian fare packed with flavor. After, you can also explore the other awesome shops in the Flour Mill, like Kitchen Engine and Wonders of the World, before grabbing some chocolate at Chocolate Apothecary.

Bruttles Gourmet Candies:

After all that savory, you’ll will surely need to grab something sweet. You should definitely stop by Bruttles and grab enough soft peanut brittle for your entire crew. The soft candy has a long history in Spokane – it’s been a staple of the Lilac City for more than 100 years. While you’re at the shop you can watch the candy makers pour vats of sugar and chocolate as the they create the tasty treats.

Liberty Ciderworks:

This ain’t your grocery store cider. Brewed in the back of their downtown tasting room, Liberty Ciderworks specializes in English and American-style ciders. Using locally grown apples, the brewers at Liberty have racked up the awards. We recommend a glass of their New World Craft Cider.
