If a signature steakhouse in a Hoiday Inn sounds like a culinary anamoly, then let us introduce you to Castle Ranch Steakhouse -- a concept hatched in the City of Trees by a restrauteur with credentials stretching back to resorts in California, the McCormick & Schmick Seafood restaurants, and the Hilton Corporation. Meet Ron Unruh.
Just one year ago, Ron assembled a culinary team to create a restaurant concept to rival high end steakhouses, but at an affordability that wouldn't compromise the experience. The keys to achieving this have been local relationships, a focused menu, and a mission to make what Ron describes as "Boise's best kept secret" into a dining destination.
In this podcast interview, Ron relates the history of Castle Ranch Seakhouse, describes the menu, and introduces us to Chefs Jack Charles and Steven Forrest -- the men responsible for serving you not just the perfect steak, but a memorable dining experience.
