The Boheme restaurant inside the Grand Bohemian Hotel is celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special menu available a la carte February 10-13 and per person at $79 on February 14th.

I had a chance to preview items on the menu and must give the compliments to Chef Rene and the staff at the Boheme restaurant. There were more hits than misses on their creative new menu. It is funny that they use first, second, third dates to refer to appetizers to entrees respectively.

Out of the first date (appetizers) dishes, I would recommend the fresh oysters, oriental mussels in a wonderful curry coconut broth, or the wagyu beef carpaccio. The second date recommendations include the aphrodite salad and the roasted pear salad, both very fresh and delightful. I would forgo the love poisson elixir, made with absinthe, as the anise in the liquor appears to overpower the dish. Out of the third date (entrees) try the flaky, delicious chilean sea bass or the perfectly cooked new zealand rack of lamb, but skip the filet mignon as the almond and brie crust did the luxurious tender cut a disservice.
