If spring has you craving outdoor patio dining and sushi, you’re in luck: Willowcreek Grill and Raw Sushi made its debut April 10 at 205 N. 10th St. in Downtown Boise.

The restaurant is serving its Willowcreek Grill menu, an array of entrees ranging from sandwiches, pitas and burgers to seafood and steak. Sushi will be added on Monday, April 17, owner Brian McGill says.

Formerly The Dish, the space is the second location for Willowcreek, which also operates at 2273 S. Vista Ave. McGill has transformed the Downtown spot into the same type of dual-concept restaurant.

“It turned out really cool inside,” McGill says. “I really love the look.”

Improvements will continue to trickle out in April. A cooler in the lobby will begin selling $6.99 grab-and-go lunches in the second week, McGill says. Those will include wraps, sandwiches and salads.

An outdoor patio also will open soon depending on the weather, highlighted by a sushi chef creating rolls at a bar.

Willowcreek Grill and Raw Sushi’s hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
