I had been trying to go to BOHO for a few months. I heard many good things about the space and the food by Chef Jimmy Papadapoulos. So when I heard that they were finally going to be open for lunch, I knew that I had to go!
I met with my friends Ashley, Brooke, and Anna and we walked into the beautiful space. Everything about the decor is amazing. As you could imagine by the name of the restaurant, it was very rustic and bohemian!
After admiring the beautiful space, it was time to dive into the menu. I was very excited to see that they had a section of delicious non-alcoholic drink options. Their flavored sodas are incredible! We ordered the raspberry thyme soda and the lavender passion fruit soda. They were so refreshing and delicious!
We decided to order several lunch options because they all sounded delicious and let’s be honest, sharing is caring! We started off with an appetizer and a couple VERY yummy salads.
The potato chips were absolute perfect. I love love LOVE potato chips and these were probably the best I’ve ever had. I could not stop eating them! The salads were a great way to start the meal. They were so fresh and light. They both just tasted like summer!
Next we had a couple of the lighter lunch items, the spatzle and the chicken liver pate. If I see pate on the menu, I order the pate. It’s always so yummy and this was no exception!
At this point I was very stuffed, but I could not help myself when asked to try a bite of Brooke’s burger. Holy deliciousness! A fried egg on a burger is always a good idea. I am definitely going to be going back for this one.
Our friend Kat, of A Girl and Her Food, was dining nearby and she was kind enough to let me take a picture of her schnitzel. I did not taste it but I was assured it was delicious and I trust her opinion. But let’s be honest, how could a dish that looks like THIS not be delicious?
We ended our meal by sharing two of the desserts. They were the perfect way to end a meal!
