Best Bartender 2018

Major Ludwig, Rice

Yes, the contest is called Best of Boise, but Rice Contemporary Asian Cuisine bartender Major Ludwig has been representing the city of Eagle at the top of this category nearly every year since 2013. In past contests, Ludwig's signature cocktail has also taken the Best Martini crown, but this year Bardenay unseated it in the running. Not to worry, Major—Rice took the new category of Best Unique Cocktail, and Boise still loves you best.

2nd Place: Mark Allen, Barbacoa,
