This summer, former Matador franchise partner Kacey Montgomery and his wife, Shannon Lincoln, will open a local, Northwest fresh-cuisine concept in the former Cazba space, 211 N. 8th St., in Downtown Boise.
Montgomery is renovating the space - exposing the brick walls and reopening windows that had been covered up for years.
The menu is still in development, but Montgomery says cuisine will spin off the idea of juniper - the not-so-secret ingredient in gin - meaning it will aim to be light, fresh and flavorful.
Zee Catering's Chris Zahn took over the rooftop restaurant at the CW Moore Plaza, 250 S. 5th St., Boise. Zee's Rooftop Cafe is open 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Mondays -Fridays. The menu features homemade soups and contemporary takes on classic salads and sandwiches. You can check out the menu and daily specials on Zee's Rooftop Cafe's Facebook page.
