Bohemian House

The Chicago Foodie Sisters had an opportunity to attend a recent food event at the Bohemian House, also known as BoHo, in Chicago for some samplings of typical Czech cuisine with a contemporary flair. Everything we tried was very good and the decor was also authentic according to the Czech natives we dined with.

Some of my favorites for the evening were the potato pancakes and pierogi as well as the desserts.

We were seated in a back corner in this cute little nook that overlooked the kitchen where we could see the chefs hard at work.

I'm a big lover of kolacky and these were divine! :)

This bit of wall art depicted a Bohemian table setting.

The space was utterly charming and cozy. The former sound studio was converted into a restaurant that opened this past July.

As I left I grabbed a copy of the fall menu by Executive Chef Jimmy Papadopoulos. Although it will be changing over soon, the current options include bacon buns, cauliflower salad, knackwurst in a blanket and bone marrow & steak tartare on the starter menu and entree choices that range from spatzle to roasted duck to wild striped bass to chicken paprikash along with the ever-popular pork schnitzel.

You can't go wrong with the delectable sweets of coffee & doughnuts, cheese kolacky and dark chocolate custard. The latter is served with salted caramel ice cream, candied peanuts, butterscotch & cocoa tuile. Totally worth the stop just for dessert.
