Chad White was born and raised in the Spokane Valley—and now he’s delivering bold flavors to downtown Spokane, inspired by famous local favorites from the East Coast, Mexico and the South. Many know him from his appearance on Top Chef’s 13th season, but White’s been making a splash in the Northwest as well, recently named a 2020 James Beard Award semifinalist in the Best Chef Northwest & Pacific category.
Missing the great food you experience while traveling? Stop by one of his three food-forward eateries in Spokane and you’ll feel like you’re in another city or country. Zona Blanca Ceviche boasts the bold flavors of Mexico, serving up ceviche in counter-service style inside the Steel Barrel Taproom. Or if you’re in the mood for some New England goodness, head over to High Tide Lobster Bar, where you can choose from a mouthwatering menu of rolls, chowder and wedgies.
One of his newest additions is TT’s Old Iron Brewery, a warm and welcoming spot where you can enjoy in-house smoked meats and house-brewed beers.
