The new year brought one less place to go out for dinner in Boise.
Downtown restaurant Kindness, 1109 W. Main St., ended its regular dinner service.
The numbers weren’t adding up, according to a Facebook post attributed to owners Michael and Anna Tapia.
“We were very proud of what we were doing in the restaurant side, but the restaurant was simply not performing the way it needed to. At the same time, our catering and events business was pressed for more capacity, so transitioning the restaurant space for more catered events was the obvious business move, albeit a sad personal one. We’d like to thank all our regular dinner guests for dining with us, and remind them that they can still come see us for brunch on Saturday and Sunday.”
Kindness will continue offering brunch from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. And the bar remains open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
Kindness opened in August 2014 in the remodeled Owyhee serving breakfast, brunch and lunch on weekdays, plus dinner every day but Sunday. In early 2015, the restaurant unveiled a weekend brunch buffet, then lowered the buffet’s price about eight months later from $15.95 to $12.95.
