Fish market Reel Foods has left Downtown Boise for a new home on the Bench – moving to Boise’s Vista Village.

The restaurant will open at 1118 S. Vista, in the former Blimpie space.  The sandwich chain moved next door and consolidated with a Moxie Java coffeehouse last year.

Reel Foods closed its downtown location on Capitol Blvd. on January 31st and plans to open its Vista Village store “soon,” but building permits have not yet been filed.

An earlier plan would have had 208 Pho and Vegan moving into the space, but that deal did not come through.
