The Lively encourages its guests to eat, drink, and be lively with a focus on seasonal ingredients and the art of plating. Michelin-starred Chef Edward Higgins relocated to Boise, Idaho after serving as the Chef de Cuisine of Beach Tree Restaurant and Bar at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, which is where our team discovered Edward for the first time.
Higgins’ creative approach to food is ingredient forward and aims to showcase only the best produce sustainably sourced in the Pacific Northwest. While Chef Edward is responsible for the culinary creations that make The Lively what it is, owner’s Greg and Kari Strimple have truly outdone themselves with an ambiance and attention to detail that make The Lively dining experience unmatched by none.
Kin is an integral part of the Boise food scene offering a five-course prix fixe tasting menu available by reservation only. Executive Chef Kris Komori and business partner Remi McManus have curated exclusive, hyper-seasonal menus with beverage pairings intended to highlight each menu item’s unique flavor profile.
Continuously evolving with experience and moments of inspiration, Chef Komori’s menus are a true artistic expression, and have been regarded as one of Boise’s best culinary experiences time and time again. His accolade of James Beard nominations attest to that.
Located in the heart of downtown with a remarkable, sunken patio and private amphitheater, KIN hosts an eclectic summer concert series’ known as piKINiks where their cocktail bar and small plates invite guests to sit back and relax with an expansive line-up of live performances.
