BEST REASON TO KNOW YOUR LEGUMES

CITY PEANUT SHOP 803 W. Bannock St., 208-433-3931, citypeanut.com

Roasted peanuts, salted peanuts, seasoned peanuts, peanut butter, peanut brittle—one little nut, so many uses. City Peanut Shop does its best to honor this humble little legume by custom roasting special blends each and every day, along with tasty tidbits like wasabi sunflower seeds, cinnamon almonds and chili lemon pistachios. But we’ll stick to the peanut, be it chili cherry, Spanish, honey-roasted or bacon-flavored.

DARLA’S DELI

101 S. Capitol Blvd., 208-336-3500, cwmooreplaza.com/darlasdeli.html Boise, sadly, is completely devoid of swanky high-rise dining. What we do have, though, is Darla’s Deli, a quaint little breakfast and lunch stop in the penthouse of the CW Moore Building that overlooks downtown and boasts one serious panorama of the Foothills. It ain’t swanky, but Darla is friendly, the view is nice, and it’s the only place in town that requires an elevator ride for grub.
