When I think of cowboys and the food they eat I think of farm to table. The Cosmic Cowboy Grill in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho is the next best thing to “buying it on the hoof.” Most of us, can’t rope or ride, thankfully the Grill has us covered on the cowboy stuff. So where does the cosmic fit into the cowboy?
“A Cosmic Cowboy embraces new ways of doing things (Cosmic) while remembering the values that make us great (Cowboy). They crave authenticity, value quality, and hate labels. A Cosmic Cowboy has Willie Nelson, Led Zeppelin, and The White Stripes on the same playlist.”
The environment perpetuates the cosmic cowboy theme and the food is out of this world. Cosmic Cowboy Grill serves locally sourced food, “Grilled-to-order meats, delicious farm-fresh vegetables, creative salads, sandwiches and wraps, and scrumptious desserts.”
They have an open kitchen so you can be sure your food is fresh and prepared the way you like.
Owner Steven Eller said, “Every day we hear how grateful people are that there is a restaurant serving healthy and nutritious food in the area.”
The food always meets the needs of many gluten free, carb free, vegetarian, or paleo diet enthusiasts.
With service values like: the food cannot be too fresh, the store can’t be too clean, and the service can’t be too fast and friendly it is no wonder Coeur D’ Alene has welcomed Cosmic Cowboy Grill with open arms.
“We already have a great group of regular patrons and that list is growing every day.” said Steven.
Some of the local’s favorite dishes are:
- Power Salad: Organic spinach, kale, chickpeas, parsley, almonds, chia and sunflower seeds, celery, quinoa, dried cranberries, blueberries, goji berries, house-made lemon-chia vinaigrette.
