In a recent article, luxury travel blogger Leah of The Modern Traveler, visited Boise, Idaho and stayed in the Inn at 500 Capitol. Throughout her stay, Leah documented her time and broke down every aspect of the stay, which included a lunch visit to Richard’s. Here is a snippet from her article, “Connected to Inn at 500 is Richard’s… accessible right through a door off the lobby. Richard Langston is a celebrated chef in Boise, and we dropped by to sample lunch. I had the Grilled Portabella with Carrot-Cumin Puree and Fried Haloumi on Ciabatta and my son had the RBLT, a different take on the BLT with Bacon, Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil, and Red Onions on a Toasted Baguette with Summer Salad instead of chips. I have to remember to put strawberries in my salads at home because it’s a wonderful summer flavor, and I liked the pairing with the lemon vinaigrette. Richard’s provides room service and food for guests at Inn at 500 and serves breakfast and dinner too.” Read more about Leah’s time at Richard’s and the Inn at 500 Capitol in Boise here.

Richard’s has relocated to the Inn at 500 in Downtown Boise with a modern, elegant new space and kitchen. Darin Oswald BY JAMES PATRICK KELLY Special to the Idaho Statesman As far as chefs go, Richard Langston is a well-liked guy. Not only is he genuinely friendly (chefs are known to be a little surly), but his Northwest-accented Mediterranean fare has earned him a loyal fan base over the years at his North End eateries. Surely you remember when he had Richard’s in Hyde Park. He followed that venture with Richard’s Café Vicino near the Boise Co-op, a popular neighborhood spot where he garnered accolades from the James Beard Foundation for his use of local food and ingredient-driven cuisine. Langston was a 2014 semifinalist for a prestigious award in the Best Chef: Northwest category. Even though Langston felt at home in the tree-lined North End, he always had his eye on a larger, hipper spot in the bustling Downtown area. His culinary dreams came to fruition last month when he debuted Richard’s (without the Café Vicino part of the name) at the Inn at 500 Capitol, a newly constructed boutique hotel next to The Flicks movie theater.
