Even Stevens is set to open to the public Wednesday, April 20, but it already has one of the strongest patio games in town.

Opening into Freak Alley on Bannock Street and separated from the sidewalk by planters adorned with pink flamingos, it offers distinct visions of both Boise and Even Stevens.

"Freak Alley began on our back door," said Even Stevens Brand Director Jamie Coates at the Utah-based deli's soft opening April 18. "[Boise]'s one of the places we'd want to hang out—where we'd want to live."

Aesthetics aside, at Even Stevens, it's all about the food. The Sloppy Joe gets oomph from pickled purple onions and chorizo while the Mihami Vice Cubano is a winner. Sandwiches are served with a side of salad or chips dusted with cracked black pepper. Swing by for brunch for unlimited french toast and $3 mimosas. 

What's more, Even Stevens' good eats do good. The chain maintains a commitment to providing a sandwich to local nonprofits for each sandwich sold. So far, it has partnered with Idaho Foodbank, Boise Rescue Mission, St. Vincent De Paul and Corpus Christi House, as well as with local suppliers Payette Brewing, Flying M and Gaston's Bakery

Boise is the socially conscious sandwich spot's seventh location, with new locations soon to open in Portland, Ore., and Arizona, but Coates said she shies away from calling it a chain restaurant, saying the shop is in talks with the Boise Farmers Market to source produce.

"Farmers markets have a birds-eye view," Coates said.
