Get a taste of Basque culture in Southwest Idaho

In Southwest Idaho, at the heart of downtown Boise’s food scene is 8th Street, a lively hub of local fare where you can find everything from fine dining to hole-in-the-wall pizzerias. Enjoy artfully designed atmospheres and memorable craft cocktails. The food (and the atmosphere) is genuine, with no pretense – just passionate chefs and mixologists who are proud of what they do. At Fork, we recommend the Idaho Rainbow Trout. It’s paired with local vegetables to match the season and is a local and visitor favorite. 

Also located in downtown Boise is the Basque Block. It’s a year-round must-visit offering a taste of the Basque culture. Sample Basque specialties, watch Basque dancers or learn Basque history – it’s all here. Every Wednesday and Friday at noon, we invite you to Paella on the Patio – rain or shine. You don’t want to be late, as the paella is usually gone by 12:30 p.m. 

Don’t miss Paella on the Patio in Boise’s Basque Block, every Wednesday and Friday, rain or shine. CREDIT Visit Southwest Idaho
