In 1984 downtown Boise wasn’t much to look at. However, after twenty years, the Brick Oven Bistro found itself at the epicenter of a unique and thriving urban environment.
For all of us at the Brick Oven, our “history” was more than just that of a successful business venture. Our restaurant was founded on the personal values we place on food, family and community. Through this venture we made a lot of friends, touched a lot of lives, participated in the cultural life of a vibrant and growing city and served up a lot of love and good food to a lot of great people.
The spirit that animates our restaurant came from a long-held conviction that our lives too often leave us feeling full, but not satisfied…busy, but not engaged. We wanted to create a place where people could come together in a comfortable and unpretentious environment and experience the joys of “slow food served fast” – a meal that not only tasted great, but was good for you. Over more than two decades, we did exactly that.
