Let’s get into this week’s culinary news around the Treasure Valley 😋
French-inspired Bistro D’Hélène has moved into 808 W. Fort St. in the North End, the spot that was once home to Fort Street Station bar and grill — even though their logos are still on the awning. Owner-chef Danielle Christine is at the helm of the new restaurant taking inspiration from French and Mediterranean flavors. Standout items on the dinner menu include crab-stuffed deviled eggs ($19), Helene’s cassoulet ($22), and steak au poivre (starting at $53).
Peking Tokyo Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar is now open at 3027 N. Cole Rd. Try their kiss of fire roll with spicy tuna, yellowtail, and jalapeño, topped with spicy mayo and tobiko, or order their Thai yellow curry with zucchinis, onions, and mushrooms.
After closing in June, the Apple Street eatery in Southeast Boise is reopening under new ownership. The joint serving New York-style pizza, Italian food, and sushi is hoping to reopen by mid-November. Their original location off Bogus Basin Road has remained open under existing management.
