Fine dining restaurant Chandlers Steakhouse is preparing to reopen

If you’re craving a juicy rib-eye at Chandlers Steakhouse on Valentine’s Day, you’re out of luck.

They’re booked full — “and then some,” owner Rex Chandler jokes.

But if you’re jonesing for a Chandlers fix sooner than that, all you have to do is make a reservation. Boise’s top fine-dining restaurant, which closed Jan. 1 to remodel, plans to officially reopen Monday, Feb. 6.

Chandlers Steakhouse renovations will create late-night jazz club

Chandlers Steakhouse renovations will create late-night jazz club

Rex Chandler is renovating his Chandlers Steakhouse because he says the 38-year-old structure needs it. But while he’s at it, Chandler plans to create a late-night jazz club/supper club in the lounge area with supper service from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Chandlers at downtown Boise’s Hotel 43 shut down at the end of the year for a near $1 million renovation that fully remodels the bar, lounge, entrance and kitchen and “subtly” improves the dining area. Chandler expects to reopen in the first week of February.

Basil Hayden’s Bourbon Whiskey – Best of Boise, Among Other Things…

The restaurants and bars in the City of Trees — Boise, Idaho, that is — boast appropriately beautiful woodwork, rambunctious yet overly courteous staffs, and craft cocktails which speak to the town’s once rough-and-tumble Western ways as much as they speak to the posh, cosmopolitan environs which infrastructure of industry and economy have brought to the place. After spending some time there, I found the best way to experience the town’s sprawling night life was to walk from place to place, watering hole to watering hole, before laying your head to rest for the night.
