It’s been a good year for Chandlers at Hotel 43, 981 W. Grove St. Not only did the popular steak and seafood restaurant just celebrate 10 years in Downtown Boise, it also underwent a major renovation earlier this year.

And for the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae? Chandlers recently won a Distinguished Restaurant of North America Award (DiRoNA) in the Achievement of Distinction category.

Chandlers, owned by Rex Chandler, was chosen for this prestigious national award due to its continued excellence in fine dining over the years.

“Chandlers is a welcome addition to the renowned DiRoNA list of awarded restaurants. The restaurant has the perfect combination of steak and seafood that you would come to expect from a fine-dining establishment,” DiRoNA executive director Scott Breard said.

“It also provides patrons much more than exceptional food and wine with nightly jazz in its exciting lounge.”

The New York-based DiRoNA organization, founded in 1990, promotes the fine-dining industry throughout North America. Besides the annual awards, it also offers networking, marketing benefits and educational resources for high-end restaurants.
