Though, sadly, some downtown dining institutions bolted their doors and drew the curtains this past year, Shige has weathered the ups and downs of Boise's culinary economy for an astounding 16 years. With an affordable, fresh selection of raw fish chopped and rolled by Chef Shige, the quality far overshadows the ambience in this carpeted, second-floor haunt. Our readers know a good poke when they taste one, which is why we're sure Shige will be around for at least another 16 years.
