A Girl & Her Food: Brunch at BOHO Chicago


Brunch at BOHO Chicago

Luckily for me, BOHO Chicago started brunch last weekend and I was invited in to preview some items off the menu and believe when I tell you it is AWESOME. 

Chef Jimmy Papadopoulos has created a menu of Bohemian-inspired fare with influences from Eastern Europe, mostly Czech. But to be honest, Czechs, Russians, Germans, Austrians, Poles have very similar cuisine and interchangeable dishes and ingredients. 

As someone born in Poland and raised in a Polish family, I give the stamp of approval on every item I tried off the menu.  I love the concept and cuisine, and deem it expectational and comforting.  Eastern European cuisine doesn't get too much love in Chicago, which is a bit disappointing as we have the second biggest Polish population outside of Warsaw.  I'm hoping with Boho, that trend ends.  No other restaurant in Chicago does what Chef Papdopoulos is doing, and so it makes me extremely happy and proud.  You must give it a shot. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. 

My favorite dish was the steak and eggs spätzle. It was served with mushroom and pepper spätzle, sweet onions and aged gouda. I was not able to capture a picture of the dish because other food bloggers started to devour it before I was able to snap a picture. #PIGS (JUST KIDDING!)
