When your friends walk into a certain restaurant just assuming you'll be sitting at the bar because you frequent it so much, you know it's time to switch it up.

It's no secret that hubby and I are creatures of habit. At this point, our mail should probably be forwarded to Old Chicago's Downtown Boise location. It actually confuses our friends when they go there for dinner and don't run into us. I could probably eat there everyday for the rest of my life and be cool with it. Hubby, however, is ready to expand his horizons a little bit.

So where should we go on the evenings we don't want to cook and don't end up at OC? According to Trip Advisor, these are solid picks for great food and service based on their ratings program! Is YOUR favorite on the list?
