GLOBAL FLAVORS, LOCAL ROOTS: INTRODUCING SALTBRUSH

Nestled in the vibrant streets of downtown Boise, the newly opened Saltbrush is captivating the local culinary scene with its distinctive approach to dining. Spearheaded by restaurateur Neil Grant, who hails from South Africa, Saltbrush is not just another eatery; it's a fusion of global flavors with a strong local essence. 

The kitchen's innovation is matched by its commitment to local partnerships, notably with American Ostrich Farms. Grant and Executive Chef Erik Johnson have fostered a relationship with the farm over several years, incorporating premium ostrich cuts into their various culinary ventures, from special events to pop-up dinners (view clip of Grant on AOF).. This collaboration continues at Saltbrush, where ostrich meat will be featured on the globally-inspired, locally-sourced rotating menu. This initiative not only underscores Saltbrush's commitment to novel and sustainable food sources but also solidifies its role in the burgeoning evolution of Boise's dining landscape. 

At Saltbrush, the menu reflects a deliberate blend of innovation and tradition. Johnson, who also boasts extensive culinary experience, particularly from his time in the Bay Area, brings a seasoned perspective to the table. The restaurant features a charcoal oven and wood-fired stove from Spain, underscoring their dedication to authentic and flavor-rich cooking methods. The choice of ingredients and the culinary techniques employed speak to a broader narrative of cultural exchange and culinary excellence.


Saltbrush stands as a testament to the dynamic shift in Boise's restaurant offerings, marking a move towards elevated yet accessible dining. It represents a growing trend of restaurants that are not just places to eat but destinations offering a comprehensive experience of fine wines, unique meats, and an ambiance that marries elegance with comfort.

As Boise's food scene continues to evolve, Saltbrush is set to be a cornerstone, drawing both locals and visitors eager to explore its rich, culinary offerings. This restaurant not only offers a unique taste experience but also advances the farm-to-table movement in Boise, highlighting the best of what local collaboration can achieve in the culinary world. We are proud to be part of this evolution, supplying high-quality, sustainable ostrich meat that enriches Boise's diverse food scene.
