I’m so excited about the annual Taste of Downtown happening now through November 6th in downtown Boise. There are so many incredible spots offering some really delicious deals. This is the 12th year and every one of the 50 participating spots is offering a $12 special along with some other special social hour and prix-fixe menus.
While many options are better for a date night (lots of drink specials!) I wanted to highlight some that I think are especially kid-friendly. If you have especially adventurous eaters you might find more but below are the ones that stood out to me. Let me know if you try them!
Click here to see the full list of restaurants and their specials!
I highly recommend the ones I got to try during the preview tour I got to go on - The Chocolat Bar, Anzalone Pizza, The Basque Market, and The Melting Pot were all phenomenal. Head over to Instagram to see the reel I made about those - it was SUCH a fun morning and I'm still dreaming about the items we got to taste!
