Such a great addition to the area. However, an unfortunate street to be located on for certain. But, assuming you can both literally and figuratively make it past the mounds of Eataly’s garbage to enter Bo’s, you will feel immediately transported to something that feels like it belongs in Soho or The Village.
Beyond decor, service was also excellent and the food was quite good as well. Not stellar. But very respectable.
First, the cocktails, of which we had three. The Antebellum, The B-Stupid and whatever wifey had. Can’t remember the name. Probably because the B-Stupid was working. Anyhoo, they were all a solid good, but no game changers.
As for the gator, while many seem to rave about it, I would like to remind them that if you bread and deep fry virtually anything it’s bound to be good. Hell, you could fry human fingers and I’d probably chew them to the bone. That said, they were good. But “amazing” is a bit of a stretch.
As for the entrees, the strip steak was also a solid good. But the Red Fish, now we’re talkin’. Such an artful mix of flavors and textures. Loved every last bite. HIGHLY recommend.
Then, last but not least, the winner of the night, the Pumpkin Beignets with maple ice cream- off the charts! I felt like the food critic in Ratatoulli being brought back to my childhood. Except he was from France as opposed to the South. And I grew up in Florida, which is technically not the REAL South. Oh, and I’m not a food critic. Just some schmuck with opinions who likes to eat.
