A new restaurant will soon pop up in Eagle near the TSheets/Intuit campus.

A local company applied to build a 7,060 square foot restaurant at 165 E. Colchester Drive in Eagle’s Bridges at Lakemoor development.

The new restaurant includes a large dining area centered on a bar feature. A private dining room sits off to one side, and the restaurant includes an outdoor patio with festoon lighting. Plans also call for a rooftop lounge area on the second floor.

The application went through Eagle’s design review process this summer. James Marsh with CSHQA described the project to the city’s design review commission.

The front of the restaurant’s dominant feature on the front side is a large set of fins. Letters appear along the front of the building – spelling out the project’s name. Renderings, for now, say “abcde,” but Marsh said those are just stand-ins.

“As you approach this building from the driveway, you’re seeing mostly the concrete,” Marsh said. “And as you travel further into the lot the more and more the wood comes into view until the point you come further along and only see the wood. The letters are going to be the name of the restaurant – not quite able to say what those letters will exactly be.”

Three people with deep local connections own Mor Hood, LLC, the project’s developer. Pat Morandi is a partner in Blackmor Inc., which owns Roaring Springs and Wahooz. He also serves as CEO of the amusement company. Derek Hood owns Fins Concepts, which operates two Lucky Fins locations in Boise and Meridian, as well as Naked Fins in Boise. Tara Morandi is the VP of Accesso Technology Group.
