For the past three years, we've welcomed the New Year by looking at which restaurants in the Treasure Valley are the BEST of the best. Here's a look at the top contenders as we enter 2022. 

What we love about this list is that it runs the gamut. From fine dining to sushi, Italian to coffee shops, seafood to barbecue, there's something here that will satisfy whatever you're craving. Even better? Most of these restaurants are locally owned. If you see one that piques your interest, please give it a try. It's so important to support our locally owned businesses so that they can stick around. (Unfortunately many of the businesses we've lost over the last two years were restaurants.)
