IDAHO: CHANDLERS

With blue lighting in the bar and a saxophone riff floating over the raised high-back leather booths, Chandlers looks and feels like the kind of place that would have live jazz nightly and serve a killer martini. It’s also earned a reputation in Boise (and at its Sun Valley outpost) for its steaks and seafood, offering 13 different cuts of meat, many sourced from local purveyor Snake River Farms. Idaho’s most-famous export gets top billing too, with sides such as leek and fennel au gratin potatoes and pommes frites misted with truffle oil. Oh, and about that martini — it’s called the 10-minute martini and was created by locally famous bartender Pat Carden, who, quite by accident, developed a method of slow-stirring the martini, yielding an exceptionally smooth cocktail. (Ask your server to tell you the story while you wait.) If wine is more your thing, Chandlers boasts a Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator (and the highest ranking in Idaho), with a list of more than 750 labels, a team of certified sommeliers and an excellent selection of wines by the glass.
