Re: “Panera Bread Coming to Downtown Boise

HOLY SHIT! A panera bread in Boise?!?! I'm finally going to make the move. I couldn't be more excited. Any real estate brokers available to show me houses near by? I want to be in before the explosion of rent.

Re: “Absinthe Any Objections

Pacifique is excellent absinthe. Voyager is excellent gin in the modern style (and not the London Dry style). Sorry Robert, but London Dry style is actually the more "real" gin in terms of historical perspective, and juniper is most definitely a botanical. Just as vodka is the liquor for people who don't like liquor, modern gin is the gin for people who don't like gin!

Re: “Absinthe Any Objections

This place is AWESOME!! And they make "Real" gin as well, from real plant/ botanicals... NOT the gin that tastes like distilled pine trees. My hats off to this small batch local distillery. Good work, we will be back!!

Re: “New Sunrise Cafe Location in Boise Set to Open Mid-Feb.

I have loved the sunrise restaurants in the valley for a long time. We we're all excited to know a new location on overland was opening. Today we experienced the new location. It was more than disappointing. Foods not cooked all the way. Waited at table over an hour just to place order. Had to ask for drinks and server to take order. We all think it's not very organized yet. Give them another few months before we will try this place again. Hopefully they will be better than today.

Re: “Thinkin' of Schinken

They need to stay open longer and better hours so those that work 8-5 can actually visit and get food.

Re: “Ben's Crow Inn

Ive been going to the 'crow' for many years, reading the other peoples unstisfactory blogs blows me away. What a bunch of self indulgent whiners! world ain perfect if your clams are a little small-due to harvest and season, or if your shrimp have a little exoeltonleft around the tail section, or if your coctail saue is a little too hot/peppery. get over it whiners! Place is a boise valley icon, dont trash it, or it may go by by with all that harris ranch crap going on around that hould be the discussion of the hour, Enjoy the crow!!!! rpk

Re: “What's New on the Menu

Could've tried offering something unique in a unique part of town, but nope. Pizza. Yay. The other 10-15 pizza places within a 2-mile radius weren't enough?

Re: “What's New on the Menu

'North End Pizza' doesn't sound to be much different than 'Sun Ray' right down the street, and will be directly competing with them for business, I would say!

Re: “The Crux Is Closed, Moving to New Location

Dear Bob,
You were so kind as to allow me to hang my photography at your coffee shop. I had no idea you were closing and I cannot reach you so that I may visit and get my artwork. It's costly to create art and the photos mean a lot to me, so if you would not mind contacting me that would be great. You have my business card. It's the art hanging over the piano. I hope you open at another location soon. Thanks! Nikki R.

Re: “Dish Duel: Neapolitan Brawl

Seriously Tara? with 3 kids, I eat at both all the time. Flatbread consistently sent back as middle of pizza is always soggy.
You can tell by the comments above this review while it's your opinion, is way off base.

Re: “Dish Duel: Neapolitan Brawl

This is almost maddening! It sounds like the reviewer is better suited for Pizza Hut. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Flatbread but to compare these 2 and choosing Flatbread as the winner is nuts! I agree with the comment above. It must be because Flatbread pays to advertise in the Weekly. I hate being brutal here, but Tony's authentic freshness (there's nothing like it) is something that I crave on a regular basis. In fact, I'm salivating thinking about it as I type-Sounds like dinner at Tony's it is!

Re: “Dish Duel: Neapolitan Brawl

My name is Jared, writing through Tina's user, I don't claim to be a world pizza connoisseur, but a little about my background! I am from Italy, born and raised, I lived in Italy for 25 years and I have had the blessing of being able to eat some of the best pizzas in the world! Tony is without a doubt one of them. I feel like Tony's knowledge of pizza which spans over 130 years, since his family is from Naples and has been making pizza for that long, is superior to say the least. I unfortunately have had the misfortune of eating at Flatbread 3 times and each one of those time I felt cheated and felt like my culture was played with. Unlike in Boise, In Italy we take Pizza extremely seriously, obviously Flatbread does not. Their pizza is alway soggy and so flat flavored that makes me want to go scream at the manager and demand for my money back! but here is a promise, I will never go to Flatbread again.
