Restaurants in Boise, ID

Boise boasts the largest community of Basques in America; and its most distinctive meals reflect that legacy: big, multi-course feasts served boarding-house style, notably in the part of town known as the Basque Block. Idaho’s capital city also is a place to celebrate Idaho potatoes, in the form of “Cowboy Potatoes” at the Capri Restaurant, which includes bacon, chives and cheese in its potato pancakes, and at one of Boise’s six Boise Fry Companies, where you choose which type of potato you want (some from Idaho, others from around the world), then have it cut into shoestrings, extra thick or curly fries or po’ balls.
