A new all-vegan restaurant is slated to open in downtown Boise this summer.
The Alchemist Plant Pub will be located at 620 W Idaho St. in the same building that used to house Loui’s Pizza. It’s also the same building where Spacebar Arcade will soon relocate to and the future home of Thick as Thieves Cocktail Lounge, a bar that would take up about 2,000 square feet of space, according to building permits.
The Alchemist Plant Pub is the newest concept from Kris Price, who also owns Alchemist Coffee on Overland Rd. in Boise. He says this new venture will function as a traditional espresso bar in the morning, and then waitstaff will arrive in the afternoon to serve lunch and dinner.
“We’re referring to it as a ‘plant pub’ because, like gastro pubs, we put a lot of thought into our food,” Price said. “It’s also very important that vegans and non-vegans alike walk away fully satisfied, and that they feel comfortable dining with us.”
Price says more information on an opening date and menu items will come soon.
