I read where Elevation 486 was considered one of the best restaurants for dining in the Western United States.  All of a year ago.

So it always surprises me when I see a Top 10 list of restaurants just in Idaho and it skips local eateries.

Basically, some of these writers have never visited anywhere other than Boise or Coeur d’Alene.
