Bittercreek/ Red Feather(Great All-Around Pick)
This restaurant/bar duo are sister locations, and you can get most food/drinks at one taken to your table at the other. Great all-around food, top notch cocktails, and a huge beer selection.

Boise Fry Company(Authentic Boise Experience)
Found only in Boise, the BFC showcases Boise's signature crop: the potato. Fries are the main course here, and burgers the side. Try the blueberry ketchup!
