For more than two decades, Chef Raci Erdem has been bringing the flavors of the Mediterranean—and its garlicky goodness—to eager diners at his restaurant, The White House Grill in Post Falls, and guests continue to eat it up! Serving the Inland Northwest since 1996, The White House Grill offers a comfortable and relaxed family friendly environment, where patrons of all ages are invited to take a seat at this fun and noisy restaurant. Mediterranean music fills the air, as does the aroma of garlic. The menu features seafood, vegetables, pasta and lamb dishes, which is complemented by a full bar showcasing handcrafted cocktails, 12 beers on tap, an extensive wine list and a beautiful scotch list—hand selected by Raci himself.
Open for lunch and dinner (Sunday through Thursday 11am to 10pm, Friday and Saturday 11am to 11pm), Raci looks forward to guests coming into the restaurant, not just for the food and drink, but to enjoy the overall experience. “Our job is to put you in a great mood with some cool music, delicious food and awesome drinks, all for a great value,” he says.
A decade later, Raci opened his second Post Falls restaurant, The Oval Office. This American bistro with a foreigner flare provides a cozy, romantic small-seat eatery bustling like a big-city restaurant with an upscale appeal. Here, patrons can appreciate flavors from around the world with the small-plate and entrée offerings. The menu stays consistent throughout the year so guests will always find the same great food each time they return.
When it comes to libations, guests will be treated to a full bar featuring great beer, wine and specialty cocktails. Unlike other martini lists, it features politically inspired specialty martinis, from The Border Patrol and Fake News to the New Yorker. There’s something on the menu for anyone looking for a good martini—and a good time!
The community fireplace on the large outside patio can seat 12 around it, and the European-style awning allows patio dining year-round!
Known for its happiest of happy hours in the Northwest, offered twice daily, enjoy all martinis and appetizers offered at a fraction of the price! Open Monday through Friday 11am to 11pm and Saturday and Sunday 3 to 11pm, it's the perfect spot for late-night dining any day of the week.
Opened in November 2019, Raci invites you to take a seat at his newest endeavor—the Pentagon Bistro & Martini Bar in the heart of Liberty Lake. The 120-seat restaurant is warm and inviting yet sophisticated, showcasing an open kitchen concept, a large bar and two cozy dining rooms. Open daily 11am to 11pm, guests will be treated to a delicious and diverse small-plate menu, as well as entrées featuring steak and seafood, and their specialty politically inspired martinis.
“We wanted to have a gathering place that friends can go to and relax with a cocktail or quick lunch in the afternoon, or for a beautiful dinner over a bottle of wine,” Raci says.
He is proud of both the longevity of his restaurants as well as his employees, in addition to the friendships made with customers over the years. Whether you choose to dine at The White House, Oval Office or Pentagon, you’re in for an incredible dining experience.
