Erik and Jennifer McLaughlin and Fred Moffitt say they're ready to open Bungalow
, the revision of Richard's Restaurant.
Among other new ingredients: breakfast, lunch, and a liquor license.
McLaughlin sent a note out today to say Bungalow will be familiar to Richard's fans, but "more casual and affordable." They say it's busy already, so one thing hasn't changed: call ahead and get reservations.
Where Richard's was primarily a dinner spot, Bungalow will feature a breakfast menu and a full cocktail selection. Not that you should be mixing the two, but we're just pointing things out.
Bungalow is located in the former Richards Restaurant location at 1520 North 13th Street. The phone number is 208-331-9855.
The hours: open for dinner seven nights a week (from 5:00), Lunch Monday through Friday (11:30 until 2:00) and Breakfast Saturday and Sunday (9:00 until 2:00).
The peek we got at the breakfast menu has us ready to order: Idaho Elk Sausage Omelet, a "Tuscan Hash" with Prosciutto and fresh basil in a wild mushroom cream sauce, Eggs Benedict and a few other breakfast classics.
Erik and Jennifer McLaughlin also own the 8th Street Wine Company in Downtown Boises BoDo District. Fred Moffitt was previously the executive chef at Richards of Hyde Park and now joins the McLaughlins as Partner/Chef at Bungalow.
