Asiago’s to close after 25 years. Something ‘neo’ is coming


After 25 years, Asiago’s is closing. 

The building that houses the Italian restaurant off of Main Street in downtown Boise was sold in July. The owner of the building is choosing to close Asiago’s at the end of the year to rebrand and bring a new restaurant concept called Stardust. 

The news release said the name is an “ode” to a 1950’s Las Vegas Casino and singer David Bowie.

The interior will be a “mid-century modern” style.

Chef Rick Valenzuela put together a “neo-classic” style menu. The release said this is a classic take on fine dining in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  Valenzuela formerly operated Rick’s Press Room in Meridian.

Asiago’s first opened in 1997, replacing the “ten-oh-two” restaurant concept. The restaurant sits in an old Wizard’s arcade location in the Gem & Noble Building at Tenth St. and Main St.

Asiago’s closes on December 31.

Owner Jamie Burns says Stardust will open in early February 2023.
