What's Your Style?

A

s September comes and the change of weather approaches, so comes one of the essential issues of the season: the fashion issue.

Fashion: a—a prevailing custom, usage or style; b (1)—the prevailing style (as in dress) during a particular time; (2)—a garment in such a style.

Your style says a lot about you. It can signify where you came from, what you do and even bring to light some suppressed parts of your personality that come out only through the way you express yourself through your clothing. As much as I have tried to dress more casual, I just can’t shake the shirt and tie combo. I’ve always been more comfortable with a tie. About two years ago, I learned how to tie the Trinity knot, and that has caught a few discerning eyes and makes my tie a bit more unique. So how do you express yourself? No matter your style, this fall there is something for everyone. When you're feeling like the seasons and need a little change to your wardrobe, try some of these fall 2017 fashion trends—straight from the runways: * Mad for Plaid * Winter Florals * Dazzling Denim * Sparkling Silvers * Raging Red * Authentic Americana * Trench Time * Flocking Feathers Whatever it is you choose to flaunt this season, may the contents of these pages inspire you to stand tall, stay confident and try out some new trends. I’d like to thank Boise’s own Virginia Treat for providing this month’s Fashion Issue cover photo.   Finally, on Friday, September 29, Boise Lifestyle is proud to support Camp Hodia’s Fourth Annual Dinner & Auction benefiting Idaho’s children with diabetes.  Helping Idaho’s children with diabetes is something that never goes out of style. Please join me in supporting this local charity and event.

A DECADE OF FINE DINING AT CHANDLERS PRIME STEAKS | FINE SEAFOOD

F

ine dining isn’t just a destination; it’s an experience. It doesn’t matter if it’s New York, Paris or anywhere else in the world, you know when you’ve found it. And for the past 10 years, that singular experience has been delighting diners right here in Boise at Chandlers.  Like any good dish, restaurants that call themselves “fine dining” establishments are made up entirely of ingredients that dictate the finest in taste, elegance and ambiance. The elegance begins when you walk in the door. More than 15 years of Wine Spectator awards places Chandlers among the top restaurants in the world.  Enter the newly renovated lounge and the ambiance is palpable, emboldened with an equally elegant selection of live jazz every night, brought to you by music director Chuck Smith. On weekends, night owls can partake of supper club jazz shows from 9 p.m. to midnight. Take a seat at a window table with a glittering view of downtown Boise’s ever-changing skyline, or settle down in a plush booth that will literally swallow you up in comfort. For something more secluded, let the hostess show you to one of the rear dining rooms where soft blue lighting sprinkles your evening with a sense of sophistication and just a dash of mystery.

The wine list rated the best in Idaho, is comprised of some 750 labels, offering a range and depth that will please even the most discriminating tastes. In the back, a private wine vault houses the “big dogs,” as Rex calls them—a few hundred bottles of rare Napa cabernets, Grand Cru burgundies and more aged up to 30 years. A team of sommeliers is on-hand to enhance the ambiance even further with advice and explanations, ensuring your selection is the perfect one for your personal taste as well as your meal. If wine is not your choice of beverage, the multitalented bartenders can create whatever you desire, including their signature Ten Minute Martini. Once you’re seated, the true excellence of Chandlers quickly becomes apparent. The menu promises an exquisite journey for your taste buds—and delivers. Mouthwatering steaks from four different sources—American wagyu from the Treasure Valley’s own Snake River Farms; authentic, certified Japanese wagyu; corn-fed Midwest USDA prime; and grass-fed, grass-finished Oregon beef—lead off the list, but the seafood selections—from oysters to Ahi and swordfish to salmon—will also tantalize your palate with both quality and unbelievable freshness. Who else in Idaho serves abalone? Chandlers does! So, how did this icon of culinary and musical delights arrive on our doorstep a decade ago? One thing is for sure—it took a lot longer than the 10-year anniversary Chandlers Prime Steakhouse in Boise is celebrating this year. The ingredients of that story make up the entirety of Rex Chandler’s more than 40-year restaurant career. When you grow up in Newport Beach, California, it’s hard not to get into surfing, and the bug bit Rex early. During the 1960s, while he was paying his way through art school with restaurant work, he decided to heed the call of Hawaiian waves. To make ends meet, he took a job in an iconic Waikiki eatery CONTINUED >

called Nick’s Fish Market. It didn’t take long to discover that his true passion was the restaurant business and, as it turned out, he was also very good at it. Four years later he opened his own restaurant in Honolulu, and not long after that, he bought Nick’s. So began a lifelong journey in fine dining that took Rex from Hawaii back to Newport Beach before landing him in Idaho, where he opened Chandlers in Ketchum in 1993, followed shortly by Baci, right next door. Fifteen years later, three of the many friends he had made in Idaho provided the impetus for his move to Boise. “We had this vision about a boutique hotel with an independently owned fine dining steakhouse, and we thought the timing was perfect for an upscale restaurant in Boise,” he recalls. That vision, of course, was Hotel 43 and Chandlers, the pride of Grove Street, and it contains the best from all his years of experience. “If I could take you back in a time capsule, you would see a little of all those other restaurants in this one.” He’ll be the first to tell you that he didn’t make his journey alone and that the connections he’s made all along the way are a big part of his success today. Take William and Derek at the Honolulu Fish Company. Rex has known them for more than 30 years, and they are the exclusive supplier of Hawaiian seafood for Chandlers. “It’s their specialty,” Rex says. “They’re the only company in Hawaii that deals specifically with high-end mainland restaurants like The

French Laundry, Tru, La Bernadin and, of course, Chandlers. We’re the only restaurant in Idaho that has fish shipped directly from Honolulu. It arrives within one day of being caught, and the quality is unparalleled.” But as much as the fine dining experience is about what you see, it’s a lot about what you don’t see. Like the kitchen, also expanded during the recent million-dollar makeover. “Chef Luis [Flores] is probably the best chef I’ve had in my entire career,” Rex says with pride. “I heard he wanted to move to Idaho and I knew he would be the right guy for us. He’s been with us since day one.” Rex’s artistic eye and Chef Luis’ talent for preparing food that charms and delights the senses have combined to create a menu unlike any other in the state. It’s a team effort that extends to the rest of the staff as well. Any fine dining experience calls for servers who are both knowledgeable and friendly, and it always helps when they love their job. The family atmosphere that Rex creates among his employees goes a long way toward making your fine dining experience truly unforgettable. Monthly classes for the staff offer education on a variety of food and drink topics and weekly staff meetings focus on what can be done to refine the customer experience.   “We’re looking to improve every day,”  General Manager David Boyle says. “We never settle.” The culinary renaissance Boise is currently experiencing was no doubt fueled in large part by Rex’s legacy of excellence. “Everyone likes to be on a winning team,” he says with a cordial smile. "The legacy is all about our staff. I take care of them, they take care of the customers and the customers take care of the restaurant.”  It’s a cycle that sets a high bar, and one that benefits the entire community. Why not drop in tonight? Let the elegance and ambiance wash over you like a warm summer breeze, and treat yourself to some of the finest food you’ll find anywhere. And while you’re there, be sure to wish everyone at Chandlers a big, happy anniversary!

The Ranch Club has stood at the Orchard and Chinden crossroads for over half a century, its stallion drawing attention from passersby. When new owner, Jason Kovac bought the Ranch Club in February of this year, it was in need of some TLC and that is exactly what Kovac gave it. From a thorough deep cleaning, to new windows and stage, to a remodeled entrance, the Ranch was restored to its former glory for its reopening on June 2nd. The biggest update: the Ranch Club is newly a nonsmoking establishment. The Ranch Club menu has been refreshed by Le Cordon Bleu Chef Joel Thomas and includes country style food with a hint of Basque thrown in. A selection of appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, soups, salads, and classic country entrees is available. Food is made from scratch and features beef from Double R Ranch. Chicken is hand battered and fries are house cut. Diners can stick with country favorites like Brisket Chili or the Bronco Billy burger, named for the Clint Eastwood movie filmed at the Ranch Club in 1980, or they can try something a little more rustic such as Elk Meatloaf or Pan Seared Trout.

With a casual atmosphere and custom built community tables, the Ranch Club offers a comfortable dining experience that is relaxed and familiar. Bring on down the whole family because it’s also kid-friendly until 9pm. Pony up to the bar on one of the saddle seats or stick with a stool if riding is not your thing. On Friday and Saturday nights, enjoy live entertainment on stage. Recent appearances have included local artists as well as more notable performers. Dalton Domino, a singer included on Rolling Stone’s May 2017 Top 10 Up and Coming Artists list, sang at the Ranch in June. While you are listening, be sure to take advantage of the dance floor or maybe rack ‘em up and shoot some pool. Whether you are hungry and looking for classic good food, or you just want to grab a cold one on your way home from work, the Ranch Club has what you need and is ready to make you a friend.

BOISE’S FASHION FINDS (CON TI N U ED)

WALLA WALLA 814 W. Idaho St. 208.343.2059

WallaWallaClothing.com

Walla Walla brings a touch of casual luxury to Boise all the way from wine country. Originating in its namesake, Walla Walla, Washington, 25 years ago, the downtown clothing store (with another store at the Village in Meridian, as well as three locations in Washington) focuses on beautiful garments, especially from designer Eileen Fisher. This is effortless fashion, providing form and function, and is perfect for the Boise lifestyle. You’ll also find stunning leather bags from Sun Valley designer Cindy Kirk. In a world of internet shopping, Walla Walla is committed to dressing you well and providing personal customized service to help you look your best.

SHIFT BOUTIQUE 807 W. Bannock St. 208.331.7806

ShopShiftBoutique.com

Kelsey Miller and her sister, Megan Quintero, moved back to their hometown and decided to pursue their dream they had talked about since they were kids—to open up their own fashion boutiques. They left their jobs in Portland and San Francisco and realized that downtown Boise was lacking in the mid-priced fashion market. They focus on popular brands such as Free People, BB Dakota, Z-Supply and Chinese Laundry. SHIFT tries to appeal to Boise’s conservative yet fashion-forward vibes, and they want to make sure they carry a little something for everyone, whether you need a cute cocktail dress for a summer party or a good pair of jeans that you’ll wear every day. 

PIECE UNIQUE & SHOEZ 205 N. 10th St. 208.387.0250 Before there ever was a Jack’s Urban Meeting Place or even a Whole Foods, Piece Unique existed and has been a favorite stop for fashion seekers for the past 20 years. It’s been in its current location for a little over Five years now and is two floors of men’s and women’s clothes, as well as a consignment shop where you can find gently used designer brands at a price many Boiseans can afford. Alex Lafong, the store’s manager and the daughter of owner Natalie Durham, is happy to see how hip Boise has become and loves that the fashion trends have followed suit.

SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE AT THE EAGLE/ADA SPORTS COMPLEX THE PARK IS A MAGNET FOR A MYRIAD OF CYCLISTS AND MORE ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY ROGER PHILLIPS

Expert bikers can soar on the jump lines.

T

he Eagle/Ada Sports Complex has grown from its dusty origins as a dry patch of sagebrush and cheatgrass east of Eagle to one of the most vibrant, unique parks in the Treasure Valley. The park’s calling card is its bike facilities, but it’s also a hangout for skaters, hikers, trail runners, dog walkers and a hardy bunch of roller derby gals.  Let’s start with the biking because that’s how the park originated. Years ago, a group of local bikers looked at an

26

Boise Lifestyle | September 2017

undeveloped section of the lower Boise Foothills and envisioned a network of mountain bike trails. Through mostly volunteer labor and with permission from the local government  they scratched out several miles of trails. Those trails  sparked the Eagle Bike Park, which later became a joint operation between the city of Eagle and Ada County and renamed the Eagle/Ada Sports Complex.  Fast forward years later  and it’s one of the Treasure Valley’s favorite cycling and recreation hubs.


On race days, tykes to teens stare at a steel gate about to fall and then sprint around an undulating BMX track. The racers, organizers and volunteers are a multiage family gathering and they make every race a festival.  Above them, folks cruise mountain bikes on ribbons of tan singletrack trail with panoramic views that stretch all the way to the Owyhees. It’s common to see kids on their first bikes grunting up the short-but-steep climbs, or gray beards pedaling shiny, full-suspension bikes that probably cost more than their first cars.  At the top, a group of full-face helmeted riders in pads and armor attacks the park’s downhill-only trails that are riddled with soaring jumps, white-knuckle platform drops and steeply bermed corners so the riders can milk every ounce of gravity-fueled speed.   Nearby, the brave and skilled test themselves on the jump lines, which are as the name implies. The goal isn’t to ride a trail; it’s to perfect your airborne skills with style and precision and hopefully avoid an impromptu trip to St. Luke’s urgent care.  At the bottom of the park, kids pedal their bikes around the “pump track,” which is a series of humps, bumps and corners similar to a mini BMX track where they master the basics and get a taste of what they will soon ride elsewhere at the park.  Bikers are rarely alone at the Eagle/Ada Sports Complex.  The sculpted skateboard park is a magnet for neighborhood groms on skateboards, scooters and bikes and the kids put on a display of tricks that make

old-schoolers tip their hats in respect and silently ask “how did these kids get so good?” Roller-skating gals practice on the cement hockey rink and they're the next wave of derby gals—athletes with a hint of Riot Girl. You can’t watch them and not appreciate the verve, style and soul they bring to their sport.  Part of the fun of the park is its laid-back vibe. People get along, and you might see a bearded, tattooed mountain biker giving tips to a young rider, or moms in minivans unloading a tangle of bikes and shooing the kids off to ride while they relax in lawn chairs. Or, they’re just as likely to pull out a bike of their own and join the young chargers.  Like most community parks, there’s no admission to the Eagle/Ada Sports Complex except this: Bring a good attitude, respect others and get along, whether you’re riding, hiking, walking your dog  or shredding the skate park. Burn some energy, appreciate the vibe and when the opportunity comes to help maintain trails, help with races, improve facilities or advocate for the park, step in and do your part.  The Eagle/Ada Sports Complex is located on Old Horseshoe Bend Road just north of its intersection with Floating Feather Road near the border of Eagle and northwest Boise.  It features a 12,500-square-foot skateboard park, basketball hoops, picnic area  and restrooms. The skate park was a joint effort by the city of Eagle and Ada County. Other features include bike trails and a BMX course. 

The pump track is a great place for young riders to hone their skills.

DRIFTWOOD SUMMER AND THE LOVERS

ARTICLE RACHEL BENNETT

"A BROKEN HEART, TOO MUCH COLD BEER, OCEAN WAVES AND A WILLING MAN WERE NEVER A GOOD COMBINATION, NO MATTER WHAT THE COUNTRY SONGS SAID." -DRIFTWOOD SUMMER

DRIFTWOOD SUMMER

THE LOVERS

BY PATTI CALLAHAN HENRY

BY JOHN CONNOLLY

mong many other things, I'm a sucker for a story that deals with the strong and complicated relationships that exist within families. Probably because we all have them, it's too easy to take them for granted, and we sometimes need to be reminded of their importance through books or TV/cinema. Driftwood Summer is one of those books. It takes place in a quaint Southern beach town and centers around a bookstore and the family that owns it; enter the typical crazy, controlling mother, Kitsy Sheffield, and her three daughters. With summer, comes secrets, resentment, love and, eventually, forgiveness. Driftwood Summer is an engaging novel— although at times a bit clichéd—that isn't too overly intense when it comes to the Sheffield sister's drama. There's a light, clean romance that isn't the center of the story and the message of family being there for you through it all no matter what is strong. Overall, I say this is a worthy read for the end of summer.

Don't let the title fool you—this is not a romance novel. If you're familiar with the author at all, you'll know it's a crime thriller with a paranormal twist. My mom recommended this book to me, and I have to admit that after finishing The Lovers, I hurried over to my local library to see what other John Connolly books were available; more specifically, what other Charlie Parker novels were out. He is a fantastic writer, with in-depth plots so far from predictable that I eventually stopped trying to guess "who done it." Charlie's first wife and daughter were murdered gruesomely, and although he caught and killed the guilty party (in a prior book), he's still haunted—literally—by their ghosts and what happened. The Lovers brings in the history of his police officer father, who ended up killing two unarmed teens and ultimately committed suicide. Charlie knows there's more to the story and he's committed to finding out what. That's when Charlie Parker gets more than he

A

bargained for and more than he understands. Although there is a paranormal element to the Charlie Parker series, it was watered down and still made the storyline believable, and at the end of the story, there was a real solution, not just a deus ex machina sort of ending, and I appreciated that. The book is at times a bit dark, dealing with some pretty gruesome murders and a few reincarnated demon-type characters, so I wouldn't recommend it to the faint of heart. But if you like a good thriller and are a fan of the mysterious paranormal, this is right up your alley.
