Try Something New
Push the boundaries of your dining repertoire and eat like a true foodie at The Wandering Table in Spokane’s Kendall Yards area. Owned by local chef Adam Hegsted, the chef-led concept comes through brightly in the form of small plates meant to be shared family style. Come with a group or partner and pick a few safe options, like spaghetti-stuffed meatballs or crispy miso-glazed steelhead, and then select a more adventurous option, like barbacoa jackfruit empanadas. Experiment with a dish outside of your comfort zone and you’ll be rewarded with expertly prepared dishes made from food sourced within a 500-mile radius. Afterwards, step outside and stroll along the paved Centennial Trail overlooking the Spokane River.
Incorporate tasting all the local Northwest has to offer with a night on the town beginning at Wild Sage. Located in downtown Spokane, you can have dinner, take in a show at the nearby Bing Theater, Knitting Factory, or Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox; and then hit the bars for a night cap. Wild Sage offers fine dining that is neither stiff nor stuffy. Elegant plating lets you feast with your eyes before indulging in locally sourced ingredients cooked to perfection. Local staples make their way onto the menu in unexpected ways like the huckleberry bramble cocktail or Thai-style fish cakes made with Washington steelhead, the official state fish.
As the state’s second largest metro area, Spokane does not disappoint when it comes to representing Northwest foods in all their local glory. Complete your trip to the Lilac City with a visit to the restaurants making a name for Spokane.
