In keeping with Boise's newest trend of a restaurant closure every month, 8th Street Wine Co. has announced its closure effective immediately.
Erik and Jennifer McLaughlin opened the BoDo two years ago after operating Hyde Park eateries Richard's and Taste. In spring 2007, the McLaughlins closed their two North End restaurants, remodeling them and merging them into a single neighborhood restaurant concept called Bungalow. However, it wasn't all smooth sailing from there. Earlier this year, the McLaughlins sold their ownership in Bungalow, and just last month announced the closure of 8th Street Wine Co.'s conjoined wine shop.
8th Street Wine Co.'s closure comes after a series of local restaurant closings throughout downtown, including The MilkyWay, Gino's Grille, Mortimer's and Andrae's. Read Wednesday's Food News for more.
