Culinary Excellence In The Northwest
The Spokane Culinary Arts Guild's mission is to connect our local food community through supporting and celebrating the culinary arts. Collaboratively, our Tastemakers have thousands of local followers, and are active influencers in our local community events. We host events that support local businesses because we believe in the diverse talent of our region.
These restaurants were awarded top honors due to their consistent excellence in service, innovative preparation and ingredients, and dynamic flavors on a consistent basis from anonymous, secret evaluations performed by our team of Tastemakers using a 40 point rubric. We encourage you to try these restaurants out for yourself and tell them that we sent you!
