Delicious food, a happy hour unlike any other and the best wine prices in town, all complemented by a staff who is always ready and willing to serve you with excellence … what are you waiting for?
Just a short drive north from downtown on the corner of Fourth Street and Spruce Avenue, Bistro on Spruce has been serving Coeur d’Alene’s midtown community since 2007; a delightful retreat to all who enter.
The restaurant scene has seen remarkable change during the past 10 years, and owner Chris Mueller strives continually to appeal to his guests by consistently offering them what they’re looking for: personal service, delicious comforting food and a sense of community. And that is exactly what you will discover at Bistro on Spruce.
The restaurant features an ever-evolving menu featuring Northwest fresh and modern-American fusion cuisine by Chef Jesse Nickerson and the Bistro culinary team. This is complemented by the warm, cozy environment, with its natural light, wood finishes, large private booths, wine bar that offers views of the chefs in the kitchen, an indoor fireplace and beautifully landscaped outdoor patio. And unlike downtown, there’s no need to stress about finding a place to park; there’s ample parking available in their large private parking lot.
Monday through Saturday, 2:30 to 5:30pm, happy hour offers half-price wine by the glass and $1 off draft beers. There’s plenty of tapas selections to mix and match. On the Tapas menu—or as Chris would say, Terrifically Affordable Pleasingly Appetizing Snacks—you’ll be treated to choices like the tempura calamari, Bistro onion rings or frites, beef and fungi polenta and spicy Asian wings. Every Tuesday, stop in for dinner and enjoy 40-percent off bottled wines. And for all of you wine lovers, don’t forget to ask about the Bistro Wine Club.
Weekend breakfast offerings range from the crepes, hotcakes and French toast to the Idaho Benedict, smothered breakfast burrito, corned beef hash, and biscuits and gravy. On the lunch menu, be sure to try the Spruce Street Reuben, Bistro gumbo, mahi mahi tacos or beer-battered halibut tacos, and linguini and clams. If it’s dinner you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong with the port-braised lamb shank, sea scallops, wild Alaskan salmon, house-made ravioli or shrimp and grits.
Chris and his staff invite you to dine with them.
