I say "Moving Up" because the restaurant is now on the third floor and not the basement.
It was our first visit. We were in Boise and decided to drive over to Nampa and sample the fare from this restaurant. We'd read good reviews and thought it would be worth the trip. It was. In fact, we'd consider a longer drive to eat there again.
We started with cups of a rich, rich cream of mushroom soup followed by the lunch entrées, grilled rock fish (skin on) changing only the "beds" for each. She had garlic-mashed potatoes. I had the coconut rice. Both were garnished with a lovely pineapple-based relish. Both of us thought the fish was slightly over-cooked but that's just our taste.
I chose to have a glass of Syrah with lunch because I didn't like the choices of whites by-the-glass. It was fine, but not the best complement for our fishes.
We thought the open ambiance was quite nice and comfortable. My only complaint, having been in the wine business for eleven years, is their storage for the reds in absolutely the warmest place in the room. Right over the open space to the visible kitchen. I hope their turnover is fast enough. My Syrah was fine. I detected no maderization so perhaps my concern is unwarranted, but if I were a supplier I'd probably keep tabs on any returned wine.It looked like the white wines are stored in a temp-controlled cabinet.
In any case, we'll definitely return for more meals.
