Here is an updated list of some of the best restaurants opening (or relocating/reopening) in Boise and the Treasure Valley during the fall of 2018.  To see my spring 2018 list you can click here.


Trillium (now open)

245 S Capitol Blvd
Boise, ID 83702

Trillum is located in the lobby of the iconic Grove Hotel.  The Grove has recently undergone a remodel and have changed names, decor, and menu of their upscale food offering.  Now you can enjoy things like huckleberry braised short ribs, Szechuan cauliflower, bison meatloaf, and salmon burgers.


Diablo & Sons (Now Open)

246 N 8th St
Boise, ID 83702

This current jam packed hot spot is located next to it’s sister restaurants Bittercreek Alehouse and Red Feather Lounge.  It had quite a delay before opening and is currently still working out the kinks. The atmosphere is lively and the menu very exciting.  The weblink I attached to thier name above isn’t even going to their webpage because it’s still not just a blank holding page.  I’m linking you to their Yelp page so you can at least get some details at the moment.


Kiwi Shake & Bake (coming Dec 2018)

611 S 8th St
Boise, Idaho 83702

Bringing the flavors of New Zealand to Boise. Offering you freshly baked meat pies, cakes, coffee and milkshakes.  This new location is set to open around Dec 1st 2018.


Naked Fins (Now Open)

Boise, ID.

They have things like specialty tacos, braised citrus pork bao buns, and ahi poke lettuce cups. Enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine, sake, or fresh coconut water straight from the nut.


ReEl Food Fish Market (*prepared food coming soon)

1118 Vista Avenue
Boise, Idaho

Reel Foods Fish Market has had a tough year. After a list of issues with moving out of their downtown location they are finally ready to reopen.  It is going to take them a while to figure out their ready to eat menu but the fish market portion will be open for business the beginning of December.  It might take a few months to ramp up operations but go see them for the best fish market in the area.


Johnny Bronx Pizza (Now Open)

4970 N Linder Rd
Meridian, Idaho 83646

Wow.  The legend of Johnny Bronx pizza is that they consistently get rushed with orders and due to their quality process and the size of their current operations are known to close early or temporarily to restock.  The Treasure Valley LOVES PIZZA and this NY style pie is a hot item in Meridian.  Armed with this knowledge order early.
