Huckleberry short ribs & bison meatloaf? New downtown restaurant cranks up local flavor

Boise has a new restaurant focusing on local flavors: Trillium.

The eatery – named for a lily-like flower found across the western U.S. – opened in the newly-remodeled Grove Hotel lobby space formerly occupied by Emilio’s.

The restaurant has been updated in earthy tones of green, gold and wood colors, with a whole new menu.

“We are proud to be located in an area with so much agricultural bounty, and we wanted our new menu to reflect that,” executive chef Chris Hain said. “Some of our signature menu items include Huckleberry Short Ribs and house-smoked Steelhead Salmon. Nearly everything we make on the menu is from scratch and sourced regionally.”

Like other popular downtown restaurants, Trillium plans to focus on local ingredients, with suppliers including Gaston’s Bakery, Ballard Family Dairy and Cloverleaf Creamery.

Dinner entrees are primarily $25 and up, though a selection of burgers and sandwiches are in the $15 range. The restaurant will also serve breakfast and lunch, as well features a full bar.

It hopes to attract local customers with an offer of three free hours of valet parking. The restaurant opened earlier this month.

The Capicola Grilled Cheese is served with mahon cheese, spicy apricot conserves on black rye and runs $13 for dinner.
