The Flying Goat is a quaint pub tucked in the Audubon neighborhood of Spokane. The building is a work that honors the area by not only collaborating with local artists for design, but also using material from a grain tower that had been located in Ritzville since 1910.
The food served is not the usual pub fare that most are accustomed to. Instead, the menu offers a variety of appetizers, artisan wood oven pizzas, salads, and sandwiches with incredibly healthy ingredients. The appetizer we chose was the Riverside Focaccia topped with EVOO, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese, roasted garlic, and basil.
When our appetizer arrived, we noticed that the edges of the focaccia were blackened somewhat. In no way did it hurt the flavor of the bread though. It was delicious. In fact, according to their website, "The char is a must! This char adds great flavor, a unique texture, and carries hidden aromas. It is considered one of the most important flavor elements of Neapolitan Style Pizza."
We also tried their homemade salt and vinegar potato chips. Even though these are deep fried, the good news is that they are fried in canola oil.
Beth, from The Flying Goat, informed me that all of their salad dressings are gluten free and they offer a gluten free pizza as well. There is a little something for everyone. They have lovely outdoor patio seating as well while the weather holds out. It is definitely worth a trip to West Spokane to dine at this establishment.
