The Crescent No Lawyers Bar & Grill is still on track for a makeover.
Spokane developer Jordan Tampien applied for building permits this week to complete the overhaul of the long-time Boise Bench restaurant into two new eateries this fall. One half of the restaurant will become a brewpub called Crescent Public House and the other will be a high-end brunch spot called The Bougie Biscuit.
(Bougie, as defined by dictionary.com means “characteristic of a person who indulges in some of the luxuries and comforts of a fancy lifestyle”.)
So far, Tampien’s employees have put in new flooring, paint and other interior changes. The new round of building permits will be for the larger changes, like new windows and splitting the restaurant in half. He expects the new restaurant will hire between 20 and 30 employees.
“We are looking at a tentative opening in October,” he told BoiseDev.
Tampien is also planning 48 apartments on the property. The application already earned Design Review approval and Tampien estimates the two, 24-unit buildings will be ready for new tenants by fall of 2022.
