Leku Ona Restaurant Review

: It's as if this delightful hotel-restaurant had been transplanted straight out of the Pyrénées. Three seating venues are offered depending on the season: the year-round third-floor dining room, an open-air rooftop café, and sidewalk tables. In keeping with its casual vibe, dining is family-style featuring a soup of the day and a house salad served with freshly-baked bread, followed by battered codfish and the chef's paella, french fries or baked red potatoes, and your choice of entrée from one of six options. Choices include top sirloin steak, roasted chicken, pork chops, lamb stew, pork loin or meatballs. Although the notion of family dining might raise a red flag to some, the cooking doesn’t disappoint. Leku Ona (which translates as “Good Place”) also offers a full bar, select cigars, and a banquet room for large parties. To enhance the atmosphere, weekly concerts of traditional Basque music and (occasional) dancing give Boise's Basque residents their turn in the spotlight.
