One of our favorite times of year is almost here: Refugee Restaurant Week! Celebrate with us Oct. 18-24 and discover new dishes, markets and restaurants in the Treasure Valley to enjoy all year long.
This year we're excited to again highlight Guest Chef Najlaa of The STIL. She's created a special Syrian-inspired ice cream flavor, "My Father's Favorite Breakfast," featuring halva, coffee, smoked salt and pistachios. It's available at The STIL'S Downtown and Latah locations through Sunday, Oct. 24.
We've also put together a map of local refugee-owned markets and restaurants to serve as a guide for dine-in or take-out options.

We hope you enjoy getting to know new places and trying new things in the Treasure Valley. Thank you to every chef and business owner who enriches our community with your talents and flavors from around the world.
We're using a revised format this year to make sure the event is COVID-friendly. Normally, four local restaurants would house guest chefs from refugee backgrounds who would serve up dishes from their home countries. It's a great way to discover new favorites, so stay tuned next year!
