Restaurant Review Boheme in Durham NC

There is a new restaurant in Durham.  Their name is Boheme.  Here is how they introduce themselves on their website

"kitchen. garden. bar."

"Boheme is a family owned and operated venture by Chef Chelsea Mock.  Guided by the expertise of Chef William D’Auvray, Boheme has designed a menu that reflects the freshness of North Carolina’s offerings from farm raised vegetables, to local meat and East Coast fish.  Staying true to the design of the property at Straw Valley, the menu is a re-imagining of midcentury ideas about food combined with a modern, whimsical approach to preparation.  Boheme is an unconventional oasis offering diners an expression of flavors, art and hospitality."
Their menu...
We ordered our wine and studied the menu.  I decided on the Blue Crab Agnolotti/Parsnip Brodo and Garlic Chives.
I consulted wikipedia  for a few unfamiliar terms....
"Agnolotti [aɲoˈlɔtti] is a type of pasta typical of the Piedmont region of Italy, made with small pieces of flattened pastadough, folded over filling of roasted meat or vegetables"
Brodo, according to Google, is an Italian Broth.
It was very good.
 Erica decided on Sea Scallops/English Peas/Hazelnuts/Brown Butter/Caramel
That was delicious!  Scallops were cooked to perfection.
For dessert we shared the Creme Brûlée.  Amazing, smooth and creamy.  My favorite dish of the night:-)
 There was plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.  The service was great and the people very friendly.

We sat inside because it was such a hot summer evening.  
I think we will go back this fall and enjoy sitting outside with a glass of vino.
Get out and try a new restaurant.  If you have not been to Boheme I suggest you give it a try.  Do make a reservation because it is a popular place.
Happy Eating!
