Today I sat down with the very personable head chef of BoMA Restaurant and Bar, Chris Bussell, to talk to him about his new restaurant, which is just days away from opening. Although he was quiet on the exact day he did say “for sure by next Friday”.
This eagerly awaited restaurant has transformed the former home of Pho Republique, enlarging and moving the bar to the left side of the restaurant and making the space feel much larger by installing floor to ceiling sliding windows that open on to Washington Street across from the beautiful Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
Bussell was most excited when talking about the menu he’s pulled together which is divided into five categories: Tiny plates (think tapas but with a twist); Small plates (appetizers); Medium plates (mostly lighter fare ranging $14-18); Large plates (main course ranging $21-27) and Sweet plates (desserts).
The kitchen closes at Midnight but the bar will remain open serving drinks until 1AM. While BoMA will only be serving dinner initially, Bussell assured me that after a few weeks they will also start serving Sunday Brunch. Sounds delicious to me and I can hardly wait.
BoMA Restaurant and Bar is located at 1415 Washington Street.
