It’s been quite the year for local restaurants around Spokane, with so many changes, staff shortages, and more. One event we all likely missed was Spokane’s Restaurant Week, the Inlander Restaurant Week (typically held in February.)
Well, miss no more – Inlander Restaurant Week is back! Restaurant Week returns August 19-28, 2021, and we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at some of the mouth-watering menu items from this year’s restaurant participants.
Below, learn all about Inlander Restaurant Week, some of the restaurants that will be participating, and what delicious meals you can look forward to for 2021!
Does Spokane Have a Restaurant Week? When is Spokane’s Restaurant Week in 2021?
Yes, Spokane does have a Restaurant Week, and it is known as Inlander Restaurant Week. The Inlander is a popular, free community newspaper and is an incredible resource for Spokanites!
Restaurant Week in Spokane is from August 19 – 28 (yes, it’s longer than a week!) and features over 50 restaurants throughout Spokane. The restaurants featured for Inlander Restaurant Week are offering three course, prix fixe dinners at either $22 or $33.
Where Can I Find All the Restaurants and Menus for Spokane’s Inlander Restaurant Week?
Still overwhelmed? No worries – no matter what you’re craving, this year’s Restaurant Week truly has a little of everything!
Wondering if there are any new restaurants this year participating in Restaurant Week? Why yes, of course there are! Some of the new restaurants participating this year we’re looking forward to include:
- Bark, a Rescue Pub
- Bosco Pasta (check out our interview with chef and restauranteur Ethan Stowell here!)
- Vieux Carre NOLA Kitchen
How is the 2021 Inlander Restaurant Week Giving Back?
Big Table is this year’s Restaurant Week’s beneficiary. Big Table is an incredible nonprofit that launched in 2009 for one simple reason: there was no single non-profit nationally caring for those working in the restaurant and hospitality industries.
Big Table helps to keep families from being evicted, provides groceries, support to see therapists and doctors, and so much more. Enjoying an incredible meal during Restaurant Week is one way you can help support Big Table.
