Gastropubs, the contemporary hippie-generation’s version of fine dining, are spreading around the country faster than a rumor on E!. Hollywood is a mecca for this bohemian variety and it’s no coincidence that one of the best examples of this sort of establishment happens to be located in Hollywood, on Hollywood Bvld., and aptly called BoHo.
The previous location on Sunset and Ivar closed shop in February of this year and dragged its chichi concept to Hollywood and Highland complex where architect David Mamman alongside Spacecraft’s Kristopher Keith designed the interior space. In April, a more capacious BoHo re-launched to a heavier foot pattern on the busy strip.
The easy eclectic vibe of the newer digs suits everyone from luminaries to locals. It’s a haphazard hash of lighting fixtures, chairs, tables, victuals, and people that gives this restaurant such a ‘lax-luxe feel. The gastro portion of the pub continues its reverence to fine dining with attention to detail and ingredients.
Former SLS Bazaar Sous Chef Wesley Pumphrey joins the team as Executive Chef, preserving the core of the menu, while delivering flavorful additions including Veal Sweetbread (Gorgonzola bread pudding with a red wine demi-glace), Pork and Beans (Bourbon glazed pork belly with homemade baked beans), and Strawberry Shortcake (Balsamic macerated berries, with vanilla cream).
BoHo is located at 6801 Hollywood Blvd #411, Hollywood, CA 90028; 323.465.8500
