Pretense w/ a Payoff

Bohemian doesn't have a website, a sign out front, or disclose their phone number.  It's a perfect storm of hipster hogwash bullshit -- the type of place you'd poke fun at on account of its absurd pretension.  Naturally, I had to experience it for myself.

Bohemian Restaurant
57 Great Jones St
New York, NY 10012


I forget all the hoops I had to jump through to get the contact info, but it involved locating an email address on a bogus website and waiting several weeks for a response.  I finally secured a reservation for last weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised by the laid-back service, lack of pretense and reasonable prices.



Clandestinely located in what was once Andy Warhol's art studio, Bohemian sports a minimalist decor complete w/ full bar and Zen rock garden.  The space seats 24, and is a great atmosphere for parties of 2 - 4.  They have a $55 5-course tasting menu, but I would advise against this option, as two "courses" were veggie fondue and cold cuts.  We ended up ordering a la carte:


Overwhelmed w/ flavor, I stopped snapping pics after the second course.

Short Rib Sashimi
Fried Sweet Potatoes
Uni Croquet
Pan-roasted Whole Branzini (w/ seasonable veg.)
Foie Gras Soba
Dessert Trio (sake panna cotta, triple berry ice cream, and chocolate creme brulee)

  1. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad. Ciertos fabricantes se comprometen con la calidad de los productos, para ofrecerlos a precios bajos. (etiquetas: Bolsos Michael Kors,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet)

    Dessa grossister kommer också att erbjuda dig ett brett utbud av alternativ att välja mellan, med avseende på färg, storlek, material och design. Dessutom kan du även få dem skräddarsydda, genom att komma med en handväskedesign på egen hand. (Taggar: Väska Michael Kors,MK Väska,Michael Kors Rea)

    Si vous vous assurez que les sacs à main bon marché que vous achetez sont fabriqués par un fabricant réputé, à partir de matériaux de la meilleure qualité, vous pouvez être certain qu’ils dureront longtemps. Les femmes dans le monde d'aujourd'hui ont besoin de transporter beaucoup de choses avec elles, où qu'elles aillent. (Mots clés: Sac Longchamp Pas Cher,Sac Longchamp Solde,Sac Longchamp Pas Cher)
