Raw meat & Mixed Greens: gift shop upgrades to make way for restaurant

Popular Downtown Boise gift retailer Mixed Greens is getting a larger space — and its old spot will quickly be turned into a new restaurant.

Mixed Greens did a holiday market in the former DL Evans Bank space at 9th and Idaho, just a few doors down from its existing store at 237 N. 9th St.  Now it has filed with City of Boise to make that a permanent move, after remodeling and slimming down the old bank space slightly.

In its place, Paddles Up Poké is set to open. The eatery dubs itself Idaho’s first poké restaurant, and will feature assembly-line style bowls with raw meats like salmon or shrimp as the main attraction. You can put the raw meat on a bed of rice, or — you guessed it… mixed greens.

Paddles Up says it is aiming for a March opening.
