Chris Mueller’s Bistro on Spruce

Chris Mueller is well known in the restaurant industry here in the Inland Northwest and has worked just about every job the industry has to offer during the past 30 years: meat-cutter, bartender, server, line-cook, sous chef, assistant manager, wine steward, general manager, the list could go on.

Now, as owner of the Bistro on Spruce, he brings together his talents to present a restaurant that has all the elements of warm and welcoming service, great food, wine and beer, with an ambiance that adds the perfect touch.

After graduating from Eastern Washington University with a degree in Business Administration, Chris worked at Patsy Clark’s Mansion in Spokane and ‘sister’ restaurants in Olympia and Portland for 14 years, then Spokane’s Luna for eight years, and was the manager at Beverly’s at the Coeur d’Alene Resort for three years.

Ever exposed to food and wine at the regions finest restaurants, Chris has also taken and passed The Master Court of Sommeliers level one program.

It has always been Chris’ goal to open his own restaurant. With his strong leadership and business skills he applied to the past restaurants he has managed, he is now applying that experience to his own vision—at Bistro on Spruce. It’s fun neighborhood dining with great fare at a reasonable price and the natives are welcoming them with open arms.

Being a native of the Inland Northwest, Chris is committed to providing a fun atmosphere where an exciting menu and a great wine and beer list will entwine to bring people together. His enthusiasm and experience in fine dining, knowledge of wine and insight in staff development benefit both the staff and guests alike. It has quickly become one of Coeur d’Alene’s new generation local favorites!

The food was fantastic, the service was friendly and the location was adorable. .... I should also mention that they had a fantastic live jazz combo playing the standards and the best carrot cake my dad has ever tasted. Dad doesn't drop compliments like that very easily.
