Five Amazing Fall Flavors to try while dining in the Treasure Valley
When we think of October & fall in the Treasure Valley, we begin to think about the amazing aromas emanating from commercial kitchens around the city. Cinnamon, spice, pumpkin, sweet potato, root vegetables, squash…
These five amazing fall flavors in the Boise area will have you embracing the change of seasons:
- Pumpkin Spice Latte from Snake River Tea
Dust off that book you’ve been wanting to read all summer & march on over to Snake River Tea to sip on a flavorful cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte while you catch up on some reading. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is their house blend of black tea, marigolds, cream & pumpkin spice flavor. If you time it right, you may even be able to sit outside & people watch on Grove Plaza while looking at the beautiful fall foliage in the City of Trees.

- Gnocchi Di Zucca from Asiago’s Restaurant & Wine Bar
There is no better way to enjoy the fall then to pull out your favorite sweater & hipster boots and head to a fine dining establishment for dinner and drinks. If you long to be teleported to a quaint, little bistro in Southern Italy, then a trip to Asiago’s for their Cinnamon-cardamom spiced butternut gnocchi in a smoked pear-asiago cream sauce with prosciutto and fresh sage, finished with toasted pecan is exactly what the doctor ordered.

- Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burger from Bittercreek Alehouse
Right in the heart of the Downtown Boise scene, you can’t miss with an after-work meet-up at Bittercreek Alehouse with your friends & family. With a gorgeous fall day as a back-drop, request a table on the patio so you can people-watch while indulging in the hearty Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burger adorned with Danish Pearl, Cheddar, Pickled Onion, Lettuce, Pickle, Tomato, & Spicy Mayo.

- Smoked Trout from The Modern Hotel
Since Idaho is the largest producer of Rainbow Trout in the United States, a fall culinary experience simply wouldn’t be the same without the Smoked Trout from The Modern Hotel located in the revitalized Linen District. Order a unique mixed drink and then enjoy the ambiance at the historic hotel while enjoying some fresh trout garnished with Summer Squash, tarragon Crème fraiche, and herb oil.
