Do you ‘JUMP’ for seafood? New Seattle favorite set for Downtown Boise restaurant

Boise Regional Realtors

Anthony’s Restaurants will soon add a high-profile seafood restaurant in Downtown Boise.

The Kirkland, Washington-based chain operates fine dining, fast-casual and to-go restaurants across the region, primarily in Washington State.

“We have had our eye on Boise for quite some time,” Budd Gould, Anthony’s Restaurant founder said in a statement. “We always envisioned Boise being a perfect fit for Anthony’s and are thrilled that we are going to be in such close proximity to the city’s vibrant downtown dining scene.”

Gould’s son JJ relocated to Boise in 2000, which brought the family to the area numerous times in recent years.

“JJ and his family living in Boise has allowed our family to spend a tremendous amount of time there,” Gold said. “It has been incredibly exciting to watch the area expand over the years.”

The eatery will open up shop in the spring of 2020. It will sit on the ground floor of the JR Simplot Co. headquarters building at Front St. and 9th St.

The restaurant space spans 7,500 square feet inside and will include an outdoor patio space. It will also feature an espresso bar and will overlook the plaza between the Simplot building and JUMP.

The typical menu for Anthony’s features fresh-caught fish along with chowders, salads and steaks. Other locations often feature live music on the patio during the summer months.

“We’ve been looking for a partner for that space and wanted to ensure that whoever shared it was a good fit for both our company and for downtown Boise,” Scott Simplot, JR Simplot Co. chairman said.“Anthony’s commitment to family, good food and the community make them the perfect complement to the building and location.”

Anthony’s Restaurant operates more than 30 locations. This will be the second in Idaho, behind an outlet on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene.
