Best Sushi in a Landlocked State
"Rob Cronin got his first taste of Hailey, Idaho in 1995 when he came west to open The Mint Bar for Bruce Willis. Now Cronin, his wife, and his partners Brendan and Ramie Dennehy are the ones who have achieved celebrity status.
Fresh tropical fish arrives from Honolulu at 8:30 am every day. By evening, Zou 75 is packed with locals and tourists, anxious for the unusual sushi. Some offerings are named after ski slope signs, such as the Black Diamond, with spicy firecracker scallops; others are named for frequent celebrity diners like the Priestly Roll (as in Jason), with hamachi, shiitake mushrooms, and garlic chips. Executive chef Earnest Ouellet is a CIA grad; sushi chef Motohiko Sato hails from Japan. But, Kris Cronin is partial to local contributions, both on the menu - you'll find maki roll made with Idaho trout - as well as the wine list - try the L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon from nearby Walla Walla, Washington." -
