Mi Bohio - Tarrytown

Deven Black | Jul 21, 2003 07:29 AM

Mi Bohio is a restaurant with a split personality. Not only does it sell very tasty Dominican food, but it bills itself as the best sandwich maker in town (which, in Tarrytown, is not a very grand claim).

Clue #1. Unlike some ethnic restaurants where you feel like the good stuff is hidden on the native-language only menu all the Dominican dishes here are in both English and Spanish, with one exception: the English menu only lists sweet plantains while the Spanish also includes tostones. The sandwiches and salads, on the other hand, are listed only in English.

Six of us went in for dinner prior to a Richard Thompson concert at the Music Hall across the street. Everything was very tasty and generally well prepared. Portions are large.

Flavorful goat stew ($9.95) slid off the bones easily but had a slightly chewy texture. Chicken stew ($8.95) was nicely seasoned, The hot spices emerged slowly as you chewed.

A small tred snapper ($11.95) was served whole (head-on). You had to pick around the bones, and the fish could have been cleaned a little better. Tasty, though.

Black beans had good flavor. Tostones were excellent. All entrees come with a choice of sweet plaintains, tostones, rice & beans, pasta, garlic drenched vegetables (huge serving) or french fries.

Batidos (papaya, guineo, pina, melon, fresa, mango, naranja, or mamey) are $3.50 and easily enough for two people.

There are about 30 seats. Last night they were very busy but service was gracious if a little overwhelmed. All major credit cards, and delivery within five miles.
