Mala Luna restaurant in Boise: Cool menu, some flawed dishes — but, oh, those empanadas

With sharp, fresh flavors, as well as certain spices and textures, Latin American food finds a savory level of satisfaction that is very difficult to replicate. As a former owner of a taco restaurant in Moscow, Idaho, I look at new places serving such food with great enthusiasm and curiosity. Seeing Mala Luna open this spring at 624 W. Idaho St., where Dharma was once located — Mala Luna is a Boise Fry Co. brainchild — made me thrilled to try it out.

ADVERTISING: Advertorial — An ending

Wow, where to start with this one? Fleur de Sel Restaurant closed on Thursday. Mary and I had been working with FDS and owners Laurent and Patricia Zirotti on our monthly winemaker dinners for 10 years. They have been wonderful partners, and we can only hope that over that span we have been as good to them as they have to us. The partnership on these events always functioned at the highest of levels with each of us knowing our roles. FDS wanted to be a restaurant, that’s it, and they and their staff were among the greats not just in North Idaho but anywhere, and we love being a wine store and we always try to reach the standard they set for outstanding service.
