Between Cinquecento, Estelle's and BoMA it's hard to keep up with the restaurant openings in the South End these days. The first to open of this bunch was BoMa, which took over the old Pho Republique space on Washington St.

The menu concept is American small plates, which my initial judgement didn't deem too exciting, but after trying a few dishes I was pleasantly surprised--everything was well-prepared, perfectly-portioned and easy to share. The dishes were filling but light enough so we didn't leave feeling too full. They put a huge emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients so everything was really fresh as well.

Here are some highlights from a dinner at BoMA:


Warmed Medley of Roasted Beets, Vermont Goat Cheese and Frisee


Kale and Shaved Fennel Salad, Oranges, Radish and Roasted Almonds


Pizzette, Wild Fall Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Spinach, Fontina Cheese and Sage


Buttercup Squash Entree with Hen of the Woods Mushrooms, Spinach, Wheat Berry, Corn Pilaff and Cranberries


Apple Cinnamon Bread Pudding

BoMA is a very promising addition to the South End. Even though we loved all the dishes we tried, we didn't have as much success with the cocktails. If you go, I recommend going for a beer or glass of wine.
