Unlike the characters in Puccini's opera, you don't need to be a starving Parisian artist to enjoy the fare at this highly-praised restaurant in the historic Gibbard block in the Highlands area. However, it's advisable to bring an empty stomach along anyway. This unique restaurant has the romance of a night spent along the Champs Eleysee, and great food to tantalize your taste buds.
A Casual Taste of Europe
As its name implies, La Boheme (the Bohemian), is no ordinary French restaurant. For one thing, it's free from the stuffiness that seems to go hand-in-hand with the reputation of the City of Lights. And the building itself gives off a rustic, country feel in each of the five dining rooms, so you can relax without being intimidated by the relatively rich cuisine. They also have a Sunday Brunch, with champagne & orange juice of course!
What to Order?
French entrees that go over well at La Boheme include the salmon filet, roast rack of lamb with a tarragon wine sauce and a filet of beef tenderloin served according to your preference. Or you can go for the Moroccan feast, which includes Harira soup, shrimp or vegetable appetizers, couscous with lamb, chicken or vegetables and a fresh fruit salad. Also becoming a favourite is the recently-introduced vegetarian menu. And if you're too stuffed to even reach for your car keys, you may want to take advantage of La Boheme's bed and breakfast loft located above the restaurant.
Tip: Try the Maple Avalanche Sundae for dessert; it’s great for sharing.
