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.

Chandlers Prime Steaks & Seafood: World Class Dining in Boise

We always enjoy going out to dinner on Sunday Night as it is generally not as crowded, gives you something to look forward to and lengthens your weekend. We had heard that Chandlers Prime Steaks & Seafood in Downtown Boise was offering a Prix Fixe three course Prime Rib Dinner for only $27.00 and knew we’d better check it out.

ByLanderSea Travel Tales – The Best in Boise: Chandler’s Ten Minute Martini

I’d never been to Idaho before and after receiving a guidebook from the state’s office of Tourism, I was downright excited. I flew into Boise, the state capital, arriving in the afternoon. I found the land surprisingly flat, but with wonderful foothills in the distance.

My tour would start with a kick-off dinner for members of the International Food, Wine and Travel Writes Association at Chandlers, a favorite local restaurant known for their steaks and Idaho-sourced ingredients. Chandler’s was also the recipient of a 2013 Wine Spectator ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ for their impressive wine list.
