On Wednesday, we joined the Wine Meet-Up group for a gathering at Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria in Boise at 800 W. Main, Suite 230, Boise, ID 83702 and their phone is (208) 287-4757. Not bad, overall, but their food, at least two of them that we had, were very spicy and Robin could not finish all of hers. It might be a good idea if the Wait Person would explain that some menu items are spicy. Our Waiter, Dallas, was very good, except he did not tell us of the spiciness. Their menu and bar offerings are readily available at Boise Menu. Here are some photos from our visit. I do hope that you enjoy it when you go there. Ambiance is really very good and children are welcome, they even have a childs plate of pasta, which Robin got. And they do advertise that their products are purchased locally as much as possible. I can not, however, give them more than 3-Stars out of 5-Stars because of the spiciness of the foods. Enjoy these photos. Cheers!

They list this as a
Artisan Romaine, Fresh Parmesan, Focaccia Croutons
but without anchovy it is not the classic version. Calling this a Classic Caesar Salad is like calling a Reuben Sandwich with Thousand Island dressing a “classic” Reuben. It is not!
Baked Goat Cheese
Robin had this and it was very, very spicy. She could not eat it all.
This is what I had, It too was spicy, but not as bad as what Robin had.
Robin then had
Picky and Proud!
A delightful change from the spiciness of her appetizer of goat cheese.
I had this
House-made Ricotta Gnocchi, Creminelli Proscuitto, Grilled Broccolini, Local Mushrooms, Roma Tomatoes, Pinot Grigio Cream, Shaved Parmesan
(available after 4pm)
It was very good with a nice cream sauce.
Then on Thursday morning, Robin said she would like to go to Reel Foods Oyster Bar for a Lobster Roll. Their address is 611 Capitol Boulevard, Boise, ID 83702, and their phone is (208) 342-2727 And who am I to refuse a good lobster? Here is their Menu, and it is a good one. Yummers!

They now offer Sushi. too. This is not the raw one.
Lobster Roll and Fries
We could have had potato salad instead of the fries. We just love this seafood market and get 99% of our seafood from there. They even have a section of frozen, overstocked seafood selections at quite a price discount.
