Rustic Idaho restaurant wants clients to feel good about kids' menu choices

Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery was eager to become involved the National Restaurant Association's Kids LiveWell initiative because of its commitment to promoting good health in its communities.

“We want adults to feel good, not only with their meal, but about what they can feed their children,” says events coordinator Joely Rhodes.

The Boise, Idaho-based restaurant group has received positive feedback on its Kids LiveWell items from guests seeking healthful restaurant food, although it’s too soon to measure quantitative sales results, Rhodes says.

“We find that our customers appreciate that Bardenay is conscious of their health and offers options to support a healthy lifestyle,” she says.

The three-location company promotes its menu through social media, its website and its menu.

The two offerings with choices of sides fit the company’s “innovative casual” concept. Those items are charbroiled chipotle chicken breast and Albacore tuna salad sandwich with tomato on cracked wheat sourdough. Qualifying sides include apple-walnut couscous, celery sticks and apple slices. Beverage choices are orange juice or 1 percent milk.

The first Bardenay opened in 2000 in Boise’s Historic Basque Block in a former warehouse. One of the first restaurant distillerys in the country, Bardenay appeals to a diverse clientele, including families with young children. Subsequent sister restaurants in Eagle and Coeur d’Alene also feature a rustic Idaho atmosphere and Northwest-accented cuisine.
