Fork, a new restaurant in Boise, has promising ideas. Owned by Cameron Lumsden, part of the team that brought us Flatbread Community Oven, Fork will occupy part of the historic Idaho Bank Building at 8th and Idaho Streets.
Everyone knows restaurants turn over fairly quickly, especially in such a dicey economy. But if Fork’s angle works, it will be a boon for diners and farmers alike.
The name Fork refers to the local food movement idea of “farm to fork.” In other words, straight from the farm to your fork. It’s a growing trend in Idaho, as in many other places. And Idaho’s farmers grow lots of things besides potatoes, so don’t worry about diversity on the menu.
Fork opened Feb. 21, so be one of the first to visit. They are open 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (bar open until midnight); and 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
The prices are moderate.
