A local favorite for corn-fed beef, seafood and nightly live jazz performances, Chandlers Prime Steaks & Fine Seafood delivers an upscale dining experience in downtown Boise. Known for its regionally sourced cuisine, the restaurant inside Hotel 43 specializes in Kobe-style beef complemented by Idahoan ingredients for sauces (Roquefort demi-glace) and sides (the city’s famous spuds star in the au gratin potatoes). For entrées, chef Luis Flores serves everything from filet mignon to lobster tails, though there’s a great Idaho-sourced three-course dinner option, which offers a soup or salad, meaty main and dessert for $32.

Wine and cocktail connoisseurs flock to Chandlers’ martini bar and lounge. The full bar offers an extensive wine menu with more than 250 varieties from around the world. The bar’s mixologist, Pat Carden, also seeks to delight your taste buds with the Ten Minute Martini, which has earned a reputation as the smoothest martini around.

Many locals stop by the steakhouse’s lounge simply to indulge in an evening cocktail and a dessert. Choose from fresh fruit cobblers, butterscotch crème brûlée, bananas Foster martinis and more. Popular among regulars is the restaurant’s classic chocolate soufflé. It takes up to 20 minutes to prepare, so order this delight early.
