Browne’s Tavern opening in Browne’s Addition

Browne’s Tavern is slated to open in the heart of Browne’s Addition on Thursday.

Located in a historic home at 1924 W. Pacific Ave., the new restaurant will feature an eclectic menu with an international influence.

A grand opening celebration is planned for May 15.

Floyd Loomis, formerly the chef at Asiago’s Ristorante in Boise, will head the kitchen, working closely with chef de cuisine Aaron Ambute, formerly of Max at Mirabeau.

Browne’s Tavern will offer to-go breakfasts of sweet and savory pastries and a breakfast burrito featuring housemade West African-style sausage, dinner entrées like Thai red curry risotto and desserts like Venetian doughnuts.

Loomis is partnering with Mary Moltke, who owns and operates E.J. Roberts Mansion Bed & Breakfast and Events Center next door.

Also on the team are bar manager Sam Fischer, floor manager Doscine Cogswell and accounts manager Kristy Stewart.

The location was previously home to E.J.’s Garden Bistro, which closed last fall after a year in operation.

Browne’s Tavern will be open from 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, with breakfast until 11:30 a.m. It will open Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for brunch and 4 to 7 p.m. for dinner.
