La Boheme review for a slow work day

Kevin | May 5, 2003 12:13 PM

Dinner on Friday at 9pm...

Extremely busy, the service excellent, the food pretty good. I opted for a prawn special, served on arugula with a tomato/tillo salsa. The prawn was done well, though the salsa was a little hefty on onion, light on heat. I also went out on a limb and tried a cold melon soup. This was good, though the description offered by the server failed to mention it was pureed with mint, which I usually avoid. A good soup, that aside.

My friend ordered a tomato-mozzarella salad, which, though fairly basic, could have used more flavor. His main dish was a seared tuna (which unfortunately came out near done-through) served with skordalia. He wasn't a big fan, after expecting mashed potatoes. With this and my minty soup, I think the owners would do well to elaborate on their menu desciptions.

Desserts were a delicous mango-raspberry-melon sorbet and tiramisu, both excellent.

Two things to note- we had to SHOUT to hear each other. I think adding some tapestries or Something to muffle the volume would be a good idea.

Also, they just began serving a DiBruno cheese plate for dessert- stilton, gruyere, and (? I forget) with apples and honey I believe. Not my thing that night, though I thought y'all might like to know.

All in all, not an awful first experience, though I think I'll try a slower evening or lunch next time.
