Meat Your Match
For a taste of French cuisine, try Santé Restaurant and Charcuterie. An elegant bistro setting and beautiful meal presentation evoke a French aesthetic in this downtown gem. A downstairs butchery handles all of the chicken, beef, pork, and seafood coming into the establishment, all of which are raised as though they were wild and are free of antibiotics, hormones, GMOs, and pesticides. Local farms are tapped to supply meats and produce for fresh ingredients made from scratch. The menu lets these carefully selected elements shine through French-style entrées where protein is the star, although vegetarian options are also available.
Traditional Fare, Invigorating Environment
With a presence in Spokane for over 25 years, O'Doherty's Irish Grille stays true to the traditional Irish concept of local pubs acting as a neighborhood hub. Don’t let the digital clock counting down to St. Patrick’s Day all year fool you, this restaurant is festive and fun on any given day. Likely the first thing you’ll notice inside O’Doherty’s is the walls and ceiling covered in dollar bills which represent a living history of those who have “joined the family.” Visitors who are brave enough can tell the staff they want to “join the family.” With the go-ahead from staff, sing a song on the bar for the privilege of adding your own dollar bill to the walls. Come for the traditional Irish pub fare, like shepherd’s pie or corned beef and cabbage, stay for the brews on tap and the party waiting to happen.
While in Spokane, forget what you know about stodgy Old World food and get ready for a new precedent to be set when it comes to European cuisine.
