Manito Tap House is a new concept for
Spokane. Yes everyone gets the idea of a Gastropub but the fact that it is a "green" establishment, down to the decor and fixtures in the bathrooms makes me excited and happy. The menu is clearly marked for people with dietary concerns and allergies. The reclaimed/repurposed decor is hip and industrial and reminds me of the many cool places I have visited in Denver's lodo district. I have "liked" the restaurant on Facebook and they update daily with the soup and specials. To try: the Middle-East inspired Lambburger with choice of soup, salad, house-made yam chips, or mac n' cheese. They had 70+ beers on tap and are more than willing to pour you a flight. I've heard people do not like how loud it can get in there but if I am in a casual atmosphere like this one, I want it to seem busy. Just took friends from NYC and they were blogging by dessert, which looked delicious (chocolate/cayenne brulee). Great bargains at Happy Hour!
