Local food done well.
199 8th St.
Idaho, ID 83702
Fork is a brand new restaurant located in the Boise Bank Building at 199 N. 8th St. This is a beautiful old sandstone building that has housed popular dining spots over the years. Fork's theme is a simple one: create simple food available in the northwest that diners will enjoy. Easy. The big arched windows looking out upon the dynamic streets of downtown Boise. All the food here is so fresh that even the simplest butter lettuce salad needs little enhancement, just a light vinaigrette and it's deliciousness at its peak.
One of Fork's greatest ideas is a Saturday brunch made with ingredients sourced right outside the door at the Capital City Public Market, literally on the street outside the restaurant.
Boise is in love with buying local and local farm produce, so this restaurant should do very well.
The atmosphere is at once elegant and casual, perfect for a business lunch or an after work drink. Families or couples will find it a great place for dinner before a movie or lunch after a river float. Enjoying downtown will be high on the agenda for most people dining at Fork.
