D&S threw a soft opening on Oct. 23, and the tacos, which the extension of the Bittercreek Alehouse/Red Feather Lounge Eighth Street empire has touted for months, are available, which for now is all that matters. Boise has undergone a tacossance, with Madre's, Calle 75 Street Tacos and The Funky Taco all opening up in or around downtown in a short period, but D&S is the latest, and perhaps most boutique-y, entry of the lot. All of its tacos are between $3.50 and $4.50.
Take the lamb taco. Ingredients include a few cherries that seem to have been soaked in coffee, a development which is compelling, interesting and unequivocally delicious. Two of these tacos paired with beer is a grand slam. The fried oyster taco brought a sexy, seafood-y funk to the table, and the perfectly-cooked steak taco is a solid bet for people with less adventurous tastes.
