Prior to Barbacoa's opening, Reef held the title here without much competition. The tropics, however, have been usurped by an environment that is two parts art and antique collection, one part local artist and a whole lot of gaudy. Barbacoa's mission is to more or less wage aesthetic war on each of your senses. In so far as the decor is concerned: mission accomplished with a leather ceiling, water feature and hanging shipwreck. The most striking piece of atmosphere, however, is Boise Art Glass Filip Vogelpohl's dining room ceiling centerpiece.
