The Cookie Jar Restaurant's bakers expanded their cooking repertoire from making fresh cookies and pastries to grilling burgers, sautéing vegetables, and simmering sauces to populate a menu of classic American fare. Knives carve off hunks of prime rib from broiled midwestern beef and slice into a warm baked potato ($24.95), and forks poke at Bob's Favorite, taking stabs at the sliced chicken, mushrooms, and zucchini dripping in alfredo ($15.95), annihilating the dish before Bob nabs it. Hearty favorites fill stomach caverns with dishes such as the tavern-battered halibut, which is bathed in beer and escorted by a side of homemade tartar sauce ($14.95), or italian lasagna that, like a rock ballad, covers meaty substance in three kinds of cheese ($13.95). Replicas of the famous cookies that inspired the restaurant satiate sweet teeth along with house-made pies and cakes.
After years of managing other people’s restaurants, Tinker Berson realized a long-cherished dream by opening her own deli, where a menu of lunches and all-day breakfasts stuffs diners amid verdant potted plants and climbing vines. Clients opt for the simplicity of staff-conceived deli creations or engineer their own, choosing a bread base, favorite condiments, meat such as pastrami or roast beef, cheese, and veggies to match the size of their appetite or one-up a lifelong rival sandwich eater. Breakfasts beckon morning diners with similar creative possibilities as well as quick bites, such as a veggie burrito or belgian waffle drizzled with syrup and topped with strawberries. Fresh salads and real-fruit smoothies with optional Red Bull boosters infuse meals with sweet vitamins, and the onsite espresso bar jump-starts brainwaves with handcrafted caffeine hits that ready minds for Jeopardy tournaments or memorizing the dictionary. Tinker's Rainforest Deli stocks catering trays with vegetables, sandwiches, or assorted meats and cheeses that can feed up to 35 partygoers.

The friendly sandwichsmiths at the Arctic Rose populate a mouthwatering menu with hearty helpings of between-bread favorites. Diners scarf specialty sandwiches ranging from tuna salad to BLT to meatball, or customize handheld feasts with two choices of meats—including ham, turkey, salami, pastrami, or meatball—and tasty dressings such as cheese, sprouts, cucumbers, and peppers. The Arctic Rose chicken-salad sandwich, made with cream cheese, apples, red peppers, and onions, packs a flavor punch and patiently waits to travel mouthward via hands or miniature tableside catapults. To sate breakfast cravings, egg and cheese foundations wait for one or two meat toppings ($5.50 and $6.00, respectively). The quaint shop seats only nine, the perfect amount for a jovial banquet, or the exact quorum for holding a judicial review on the legality of breakfast for dinner.
Before opening Taco Del Mar's startup location in Seattle in 1992, its founders spent years surfing California's coastline and devouring fish tacos and stuffed burritos. During this time, they developed a bottomless appetite for the local specialty?a taco with fried fish, shredded cabbage, lime juice, salsa, and a mystery white sauce?and decided to make it their signature menu item. Since then, the chain has opened locations in more than 20 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.
The restaurant's Spokane location gives locals a taste of California-surfer cuisine and mission-style eats inspired by the Latino restaurants of San Francisco's bay area. Fresh guacamole dresses tortilla chips, and proteins such as seasoned pork and fried Alaskan cod fill tacos. Cooks roll meats such as braised chicken or ground beef into burritos or edible origami. The foodsmiths also whip up vegetarian and vegan options.
