A Huge List of Treasure Valley Restaurants Opening This Weekend during Phase 2 Idaho Re-Opening

Last updated May 15, 2020 by Tessa Bishop

We’ve all been patiently waiting for things to slowly open up, and the time has finally come. With the Idaho Rebounds Plan put in place, beginning this Saturday, May 16, we will be entering Stage Two of Idaho’s reopening. Part of stage two will include indoor gyms, hair salons, and restaurant dining rooms with emphasis on continuing to take extra caution and meeting specific requirements.

The Boise Mayor, Lauren McLean, and the City of Boise are planning for a multi-stage reopening that follows similarly to the Idaho Rebounds Plan, except they’ve yet to determine specific dates for each phase. The City of Boise has decided to join Idaho in moving into Stage 2, beginning May 16. While we wait to hear what this means for businesses located in Boise, we can still continue to support the businesses that span throughout the Treasure Valley.
