Bohemian has a really chill atmosphere. It's quiet, intimate, and ambient. When you walk into the restaurant, it feels like you're walking into someone's home. There's enough seating for about 28 people. The restaurant even has a mini zen garden. I don't think that Bohemian has a very extensive menu but the things they do serve are very good quality. They also have a 6-course tasting menu for $58, which exhibits their specialty plates. The first thing we ordered was a Farmer's Fresh Vegetable Fondue. This epic bouquet of vegetables was chilled in a large bowl of ice. Everything was super fresh. I don't even know what some of these vegetables are. I think we had carrots, parsnips, peppers, radish, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and red cabbage. The fondue was made with cream cheese and anchovies (which seems to be one of their secret ingredients for unspeakable flavor).
Next, we got the Washu-beef Short Rib Sashimi with sweet daikon pickles and soy sauce garlic. This was a DIY flavor bomb. We were encouraged to eat a sliver of short rib with a slice of garlic and a smidgen of wasabi, which seemed like reasonable advice. Then, we sat back and enjoyed a short trip to heaven. The short rib came from the butchery next door. They sell washu-gyu beef, i.e. meat from a cross breed between Japanese Wagyu and American Black Angus. Although this is considered to be "fake" wagyu, it's still very good. If you look closely at the short rib, you can tell that the meat still contains premium marbling.
For our main dish, we ordered the pan-roasted branzino. It came with some seasonal vegetables (potatoes, zucchini, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and mushrooms). The fish lightly seasoned but was dressed with garlic, anchovies, and rosemary. When it arrived at our table, I'm pretty sure the aroma brought tears to my eyes because it was so beautiful. It was almost like looking into a mirror. So. Beautiful. The fish was incredibly fresh (from Greece, apparently? TBC). The skin was perfectly salted and crunchy while the meat was transcendentally soft and natural.
For dessert, we got the Yuzu Panna Cotta with Kuromame-Black Bean and Yuzu. All my friends know that Panna Cotta drives me crazy. It's probably one of my favorite desserts. Yuzu, by the way, is a small asian citrus fruit. It has a nice tart flavor. I love it so much that I would bathe in this stuff. Just kidding. But, FUN FACT, some people actually use Yuzu (just the fruit) in a hot water bath to relax, guard against colds, and treat rough skin.
Overall, I'll definitely be back. This is one of the places I will take my parents when they visit!
