What does "best restaurant" really mean? It's kind of a broad category, but basically it means that any time of day, any day of the week, Boiseans will head to Bittercreek. We can't really nail down if it's the Northwest-inspired, locally-driven menu, the impressive beer and wine selection (sorted by the distance traveled to reach the restaurant), the classy/casual atmosphere or the prime people watching from the street-side patio that draws the crowds in--it's a safe bet that it's the combination of all of the above. But after three straight years of claiming this title, there's little doubt left that we love us some Bittercreek.
