If you were excited for fresh seafood from Anthony’s Boise, you’ll have to wait.

Last July, BoiseDev told you about the plans for the new seafood restaurant in Downtown Boise.

Known for its fresh fish selection, Anthony’s was planning on a spring opening on the ground floor of the J.R. Simplot Company headquarters on West Front Street.

However, construction on the new location halted in mid-March and remains on hold.

BoiseDev reached out to Anthony’s media representatives but they did not provide any updates on the new location.

In April, a spokesperson for Anthony’s told the Idaho Statesman that the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the expansion.

The Kirkland, Washington-based chain operates more than 30 fine dining, fast-casual and to-go restaurants across the region, primarily in Washington State.

Currently, Anthony’s in Coeur d’Alene is the only location open in Idaho.

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