Re: “Boise Weekly's 12th Annual Coldest Beer

The extreme fluctuation in beer temps from last year to this year at so many local bars has got me me wondering when the last time your thermometers were calibrated.

Re: “Boise Weekly's 12th Annual Coldest Beer

Cold beer is tasteless and in the era of craft beers has become an anachronism of sorts.

I find myself at a 4 star 4 diamond resort still looking David up to see what he is doing and what crazy things he is inventing in the kitchen. Good cooking buddy.

i just wish we had a gluten free vegan/vegetarian restaurant that wasn't so "hippy-dippy". just because i don't eat meat doesn't mean i wave a tie dyed flag.

Re: “38.8°

Paid a visit to cowgirls recently. The staff told me not to order Grey Goose because it is actually Takka. They told me thay the owner pours cheap liquor into top shelf bottles. I am very offended that I was charged for one ounce of liquor what she l
Pays for three bottles.

He was never the personal chef to either Bill Cosby or Stevie Nicks. What a sham.

"Executive chef and founder of the Cowboy Restaurant and Brewery, the first restaurant in America to win the World Cup Hefeweizen award for food and beer pairings."

There is no such category at the World Beer Cup.

Re: “10th Street Station

The bartenders here are arrogant and kick happy. Terrible customer service. All three times I've been in here, the bar tender either butted into a conversation, was rude to the point of being insulting, threw me out after having a single drink and over charged my tab. If you're looking for a place with a bartender who knows that bar tending requires more then just sloshing booze into a glass... Go elsewhere.

Re: “Chef Profile: David Knickrehm

The Knickrehm deux (David & Rachel) rock so hard its difficult to put into words. They care so much about their food, their ingredients, the freshness, the presentation, the everything...You can't go wrong with taking a date or spouse to eat at Bella Aquilla. The scenery, the location, the food, the staff, the care is spectacular and it really takes you away from Boise for a bit. I love Boise, dont get me wrong..but sometimes you just need to get away from it, Bella will do that for you.

Re: “Chef Profile: David Knickrehm

Geez Brent, lighten up. I didn't say "bad" servers. I picture great servers with a "Monty Python-esque" dry sense of humor. Didn't you save room for an after dinner mint? "It's Wafer thin!"

The Porterhouse in Eagle makes awesome Cioppino and it seems to be available pretty regularly.

Re: “Favorite Foods/Vegetarian

There is one caveat to vegetarian instead of vegan food. Evidence suggests that casein, a cow milk protein, when ingested with plant foods, binds with all the healing antioxidants and renders them USELESS to our body! It's so easy and healthier to be vegan!

Why would someone choose to be vegan? To help end world hunger for one! Here are two uplifting videos to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice: and

Re: “Chef Profile: David Knickrehm

And I agree with him. Since people around here still think that they can find real Italian food in Boise, which sadly it is not true. I recently had a poor and disappointing dining experience at Bella Aquila. Nothing tasted like authentic Italian food, which of course the partially educated people would never find it tasty, as whatever food you offer in the US has to be adjusted for the local taste and drawn in gallons of creams and sauces in order to be liked by the average diner. At least, Knickrehm addresses this limit itself. In regard of the "bad servers" it's an already winning formula adopted by the famous restaurant "La Parolaccia" in Roma (Rome), in which servers purposely provide bad service and annoy customers in many ways (insulting them) and everyone laughs as there's some for everyone (the food is great and of course it's authentic Italian). This would never work in a place like Boise, as it would need people with some sense of humor.

Re: “Buddies Pub & Deli

Don't go when they have karaoke. The karaoke people are extremely rude and obnoxious. Other than the karaoke, the place is clean and has good food.

Re: “Boise Weekly's 10th Annual Coldest Beer

Seek, is right. Over-coldness dulls beer's flavor by numbing the taste buds. Works well for both cheap beer and white wine but should not be a criteria for quality, taste, or award worthiness. How about a best local brew contest? Or best non-high volume commercial free beer not aimed at the cheap beer drinking crowd contest.
