Question: What do you get when you mix a local brewery and a Boise food truck?
Answer: A Lost Shack.
Lost Shack by Lost Grove Brewing and Sushi Shack is on track to debut this fall at 3724 S. Eckert Road. The 1,500-square-foot beer bar and restaurant will share a building (including restrooms) with ice cream shop The STIL, set to open its Harris Ranch location in June.
Black and Cordry got to know each other after opening their businesses in 2017. The Sushi Shack truck sometimes parks and serves rolls to drinkers at Lost Grove Brewing.
“I like to think they make some of the best sushi in town,” Black says.
As the local brewery’s second tasting room, Lost Shack will have eight to 10 of its beers on tap — plus wine and sake.
As Sushi Shack’s brick and mortar space, the Lost Shack menu will be tastefully raw. (With the exception of Krunchy Krab salad — battered, fried tempura. “Everybody absolutely loves it,” Cordry says). Customers will nosh on classic spicy tuna or California rolls. Or they’ll be able to select colorful specialties such as Sushi Shack’s Heavy Metal Roll (smoked salmon, avocado, cucumber topped with tuna, garnished with Krunchy Krab salad, tobiko, cucumber and 3 Sauce).
Lost Shack also will serve poke bowls.
“They’ll expand their menu a little bit from what the truck currently has,” Black says, “but the thought is we’re still going to keep it a nice, pretty tight sushi menu.”
