Lonely Planet review
This restaurant has lively sidewalk patios, intimate environs and lots of personality. They also serve wholesome, usually locally produced food with an emphasis on sustainable growth. The nouveau American menu at Bittercreek features a good selection of vegetarian options (it does organic Idaho black bean burgers on request). Order one of the whiskey cocktails made using an old-fashioned preprohibition-era recipe. Try the bourbon sour with lemon, whiskey, egg whites and sugar (c 1860). The Red Feather is slightly more upscale, and does delicious wood-oven pizza and a set three-course menu for two (per person $23).
