On State and Illinois Street in downtown Chicago is a restaurant serving authentic Bohemian cuisine called Bohemian House (or BoHo).
I’m going to be completely honest and say that I had no idea what type of food was served at BoHo when I made the reservation. I made the reservation based solely off of the interior and didn’t really pay attention to what was served. BoHo looked fun and different so I thought I’d give it a shot and I’m so glad that I did. When I went back through my photos from that evening I felt that they really didn’t do it justice so I’ve attached some photos from their website below.

Due to my lack of knowledge of the menu, my friends and I decided to each order an appetizer that was a little out of our comfort zone and split them between all of us.
Below is the smoked golden trout spread with pickled celery, trout roe (caviar) and butter crackers. This spread was light but pretty sweet as well with the pickled celery on top. I was nervous about this one and would say that it was probably my least favorite out of the four.
Next, is my personal favorite the asparagus toast. Served on whole grain with goat cheese, honey and egg yolk, this dish was packed with so much flavor. The combination of the goat cheese and the honey gave a sweet and savory taste that hit the spot. I was tempted to order another toast at the end because I enjoyed it so much.
