Bardenay owner applies to build new Eagle restaurant

The owner of Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery will soon open a new Treasure Valley eatery in Eagle.

Kevin Settles applied to the City of Eagle to build the large new restaurant at 676 E. Riverside Drive, adjacent to a planned Homewood Suites Hotel. The back of the restaurant would face busy State Street, but access would come from within the Eagle River development.

The project, filed by Settles’ Coyne LLC, includes a large dining area, bar and private dining room. The restaurant seats more than 100 patrons, plus a bar with 15 seats and a side room with seating for 24. The plans call for additional seating on the 500 square foot patio overlooking the ponds in the area.

“It is our intent to provide the Eagle community with another first-class dining option,” Tamara Thompson of The Land Group wrote in an application letter. “The high-quality design standards will ensure this project will fit well into the overall vision of the Eagle community.”

The new restaurant is right around the corner from Settles’ Eagle location of Bardenay.

The 6,000 square foot building is valued at more than $760,000 according to City of Eagle permit filings.
