BW reviewers raved about Nampa's La Belle Vie, praising the quaint, seasonal French restaurant's "flawless" halibut and "incredible" gnocchi. Food and Wine magazine even nominated Chef Nick Duncan as a People's Best New Chef finalist. But good press couldn't pay the bills, and La Belle Vie closed its doors in May. Owner Cathy O'Connell lamented the decision, saying, "Nampa is losing something huge and they don't even know it." We couldn't agree more. Au revoir, La Belle Vie.
