Bistro fare that eludes the usual food categories. The specials menu is full of the simple but unusual, from ginger chicken with grilled nectarines to phyllo wrapped salmon. Lunches, similarly, are stray from typical Boise fare with entries like gnocchi Bolognese and New Orleans muffulittles and chips. Tapia’s uses familiar flavors to take your taste buds off-road.
