The Fowler is slated to open at 5th St. & Broad St. in Downtown Boise later this year, and now a restaurant will be part of the mix.
The project includes retail on the ground floor with six floors of market rent apartments above (BoiseDev Project Tracker). Wylder LLC has filed to open Rex Pizza, a 2,480 square foot restaurant and bar on the corner.
The new restaurant would join Boise Brewing in opening up a new beachhead for food and drink patrons downtown.
State business filings show Wylder LLC incorporated this week and lists David Rex as principal in the business.
No matter how successful, Rex Pizza may never eclipse the most famous Idaho business named for a guy named Rex - fictional or otherwise.
