Bars where Pete has had a drink

#1499 - Barbacoa Grill, Boise, ID - 7/3/2011

Barbacoa is a fun, wildly theatrical restaurant and bar serving wildly theatrical, high end, Latin American food.

The food tastes quite good.  The cocktails are unsophisticated and overly sweet, but you can opt for something from the extensive wine collection.   Watching the servers walk past with various plates is a bit like watching a circus -- each dish formed into wild swirls and elevated onto vertical skewers.

The weekday we attended, the upper floor was not open, which friends informed me was a pity, though there is plenty of sensory overload on the main floor alone.  There is also a nice veranda, which looks out onto a small lake in the adjacent Parkcenter Park.
