La Boheme Restaurant Review

: Restaurant designer Margaret O’Brien transformed the look of La Bohème with more private booths, for example, while keeping the original chandeliers. The kitchen is now guided by executive chef Martha Esquivel. Menu items include Catalan octopus with saffron, ahi tartare with cucumber and yuzu, duck breast with black lentils, and beef tenderloin with corn soufflé.

Cafe La Boheme

Before your order is taken from one of several attentive and efficient waiters, fresh house-baked warm focaccia bread is placed before you accompanied by a ramekin of white bean puree dip. A few of our favorite and most-loved dinner entrees consist of the Herb-Marinated Hanger Steak (presented with a balsamic steak sauce, glazed green beans and garlic mashed potatoes), the popular 6-Ounce Filet Mignon (which literally does melt in your mouth), the Seared Sea Scallops (produced with mushrooms, edamame and a yuzu Beurre Blanc), and the Miso Glazed Salmon (offered with Baby Bok Choi, Shiitake Basmati rice, and a spinach sauce). Due to the change in season and availability of certain fresh ingredients, Chef Banta has recently replaced her very popular Japanese Pumpkin Ravioli in Brown Butter Sage Sauce with a Squash Ravioli in a lighter, less sugary flavored sage butter sauce. Did we mention that on Monday evenings, the corkage charge is only five dollars? It's a courtesy well-accepted and appreciated by both the establishment's first-time customers as well as their seasoned returning enthusiasts. We're not big dessert consumers, but on rare occasion, we have been known to indulge in one specific creation on the Cafe La Boheme dessert menu...the Banana Bread Pudding... After dinner, we took the rest of our wine outside on the patio to enjoy the remainder of the evening and the close of the lightened sky above.
