Re: “Boise's New Vegan and Vegetarian Hangout

We already have a Kindness Restaurant. Now we also have a Kind Cuisine Cafe. I am waiting for the new bar called Kind Place to Get Drunk Fast.

Good food. You can tell they care about what they serve and where they get it. Nicest staff. I love this place.

Re: “Boise's New Vegan and Vegetarian Hangout

Oh, one more thing. Even if you don't want to eat, if you love art, go check out O Ah Key's art.. It is really trippy and unique and fabulous.. In my humble opinion.. Here is his website too >> http://o-ah-key.com/ <<

Re: “Boise's New Vegan and Vegetarian Hangout

A couple of things in regard to the comments and for the writer Tara Morgan. For now the art is from artist O Ah Key. There is a scheduled artist reception and art show for O Ah Key and artist Judy Jewel on November 19th 7-9. (see flier on their Facebook page) Also soon will be the grand opening and they will be offering dinners after that. Oh Ah Key is the artist displayed right now, who once was Michelle Reynolds' (the owner of Kind Cuisine Cafe) partner at the Kulture Klatch in the 8th Street Market Place. He is not a partner in Kind Cuisine but has been a major help in getting things going there. It is all evolving and will be having more revolving art and shows, music, movies and more as they move forward. And as far as the food, I am sure Michelle would welcome all critiques and suggestions. They also source local food as much as possible as a basic operating principle. Give it a try. Support local!

Re: “Boise's New Vegan and Vegetarian Hangout

Love your place. You have to mix up the art on your wall. If it is all the same you have to space it unevenly. And the art is too high. It needs to feel like and can sit down and have food instead of standing an looking at the art. Bring it down for diners so they can see it. I would love to help you for free. I love this place so much. Just needs a little tweeking.

Re: “Boise's New Vegan and Vegetarian Hangout

Yummm! Delicious vegan food is one reason why the number of vegans has doubled in less than 3 years. Here's a video to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE

Re: “Stretching Your Dollars During Boise Restaurant Week

Don't waste your money at Angell's. It sounds like a good deal, and I was sure that the French chef (from the Le Coq Rouge) could do no wrong. I was wrong! The appetizer is supposed to be either French onion soup or a salad. They actually only had clam chowder. I ordered the salad, which was described as "mixed greens" with radishes, seasonal fruit, chevre and nuts. What I received was a small pile of iceburg lettuce with one unripe tomato...what??? The game hen was unrecognizable as a game hen, as it was chopped up and covered in a very unappetizing sauce. I had to keep pulling bones out of my mouth :( There was little selection with the dessert, as there was one piece left of one cake, four pieces left of another, etc. I ordered the cheesecake and the waitress pointed out that the pieces were "mangled" but would still taste good. I also received "the most mangled piece." Heaps of whip cream were piled on the plate to disguise the fact that I received 1/2 a piece of cake. There were also supposed to be wine pairings with each course. This did not happen. A wine sample accompanied the appetizer, and it was the WORST wine I have ever had. Imagine adding burgundy food coloring to a bottle of nail polish remover...this was the wine. I am so sad I wasted my money here, and for the prices here, I will not be back to give it another try.

Re: “Flying M Sold to New Owner

Well it has been about three years since Kent wasn't going to change anything and all the old tables and chairs and the old comfy couch are gone replaced by cheep furniture and glitter sparked tables with aluminum chairs and the refill coffee pots are gone because Kent is afraid someone is going to steel an extra refill from him so now every one has to stand in line to get a refill and the line jambs up to the door on most mornings and when the secondary espresso machine breaks down Kent closes the second cash register because he thinks he cannot afford to pay someone to sell pastries and drip coffee and tea with out the espresso cash cow. The line literally extends out onto the sidewalk in front of the M and Kent doesn't like any music except Dona Summers and all that techno music that you typically here in a gay bar atmosphere so gone are the Beatles music or Johny Cash or Neal Diamond or Moody blues or Billy Holiday or Frank Sinatra or any one else that might indicate that Kent has any idea what diversity means or that he understands that he is there to serve the customer not visa verse. The difference between and entrepreneur and a business owner is that an entrepreneur takes the risk to start something new with a vision on a wing and a prayer. They build something successful if they have gambled correctly and paid the price in blood , sweat and tears. A business owner is someone who buys someone else's business because they don't typically have the vision or the intestinal fortitude to start there own. They often don't know a thing about being of service to people or understand the vision of the people who started the business and consequently start to make stupid decisions based on ego and ignorance that ofttimes ultimately end in the failure of that business. Kent gets a d- from me on what he was not going to due to the M when he bought it. Oh and I almost forgot we have disco ball hanging from the ceiling now. YUP... and Kent gets really upset if anyone makes suggestions on improvement to the situation. Not much else I can add I guess. Its just sad really sad. I rue the day.

A culín of cider isn´t bad, but a glas of Chacolí (txakoli), would be much better

Re: “Expansions, Openings and Closures

Stopped at GRIND on Saturday after a late flight into BOI. The kitchen closes at 10pm; fortunately, I was 15 minutes early. I ordered the Salmon burger. I'd say by normal seafood patty style, this thing was amazing. It was more like a salmon filet on a bun. I ordered it without any sides so I can't comment there. The beer selection was "ok" and I hope it improves as the business picks up. Give them a try, they seem to have learned many lessons in Eagle.

Re: “Expansions, Openings and Closures

As is the case with most restaurant starts, 'grind' seemed a bit off, still getting on their feet so to speak. That said, the burgers were good (not amazing), and I was disappointed in the quality of the fries and the accompanying various sauces to dip them in, as I was so looking forward to them by their enticing descriptions. Too many places seem reluctant to 'spice up' their condiments, and they end up coming up flat and not really tasting at all of the spices/herbs, etc. that they claim to have in them.

Re: “Expansions, Openings and Closures

"In closing news, the West End Food Park has shut down only a few months after opening at 2419 W. Fairview Ave"

Sad but kind of a duh before they started. The location was horrible. Not really anything around there that you would walk to or from.

Green Belt is a little far off if you are on foot, down town is clearly too far away. What else is there for the public that has mass appeal outside of the food trucks? Little, thus it was doomed from the start.

Location, location, location!

Re: “Capitol Cellars Takes Over Former Mortimer's Space

To 'Diderot' first, and 'MarcoPolo' second: Yes, what a relief to not have blaring or otherwise distracting TV's in a restaurant. And don't fret it, it's NOT difficult to get around downtown, quit complaining.
"Who drinks wine?," you ask 'MarcoPolo.' Millions of people is the short answer! Your rant against wine and wine drinkers makes me think that YOU are the one with 'boorish' taste! I do however agree with your digs on the 'right wing' tirade at the end of your post.

Re: “Capitol Cellars Takes Over Former Mortimer's Space

"And this will be the Lobbyist table, which will be the nicest place in the building." This says it all. The Idaho political system theme is bad enough as the basis for a wine cellar and restaurant, but the "lobbyist" section will be the nicest part of it. Am I reading Kafka here?

Re: “Capitol Cellars Takes Over Former Mortimer's Space

who drinks wine? - eeeeek - gross! I guess much like his political party, his taste in beverage is also archaic, antediluvian, out of style, boring, and not relevant. I can only imagine the gross conversation that will take place in this dungeon - topic #1 - "Where did we go wrong with the keeping gays down and un-married?" Topic #2 - "How can we get more guns in the hands of our community?" Topic #3 - "lets be honest, can we find more tax cuts for our country club buddies?"
