Pan-Asian restaurant replaced with new Mediterranean concept

Idaho's Biggest Toy Drive

A lakefront restaurant in McCall has a new concept this week.

Chef Steven Topple closed pan-Asian food concept Jasmine + Ginger last month. Tuesday, he reopened the restaurant as Ragazza Di Lago.

As BoiseDev reported, Jasmine + Ginger opened last fall in the former Anchor spot above the Yacht Club along Lake St. in McCall.

The new restaurant idea expands Topple’s ‘Ragazza’ brand – which currently includes Ragazza di Bufalo Italian restaurants in both Donnelly and Caldwell. The new venture adds a Mediterranean food spin along the lake in McCall.

Offering a “creative take” on Mediterranean food, Ragazza Di Lago uses local produce and other ingredients for a dinner menu focused on fish and seafood dishes. Menu items include garlic shrimp, salmon piccata, lobster empanada, steamed mussels in chorizo, paella, and more. A selection of salads, beef tenderloin, and roasted eggplant dish round out the options.

Ragazza di Lago also makes house-made baklava for dessert. The restaurant also has a cocktail program.

Ragazza Di Lago serves dinner Tuesday night through Saturday night from 4:30pm-8:30pm. Living up to its ‘di lago’ name, the restaurant includes an outdoor deck for the warmer months in McCall.
