Louie's vs. OSF

Editors' Picks

There are just so many places to go with this one. First, there are all the unconfirmed rumors: that the owners of Louie's once owned the Lithograph Building (where Old Spaghetti Factory now draws inexplicably large crowds for mediocre plates of pasta), then sold it to a friend who brought in OSF as a tenant. And that when Louie's closed its doors this summer, it was because the building had been purchased (possibly by OSF). Apparently, that deal has fallen through. So where does that leave what we do know for sure? That Boise is ga-ga for pasta and goes with the big guy rather than the local one. (Insert finger wagging here.)
