I love trying new restaurants so you know Boca in Cincinnati is pretty outstanding if I ended up eating there two of the three nights we stayed in the Queen City. The food, service, and ambience were out of this world.
Boca does a great Midwestern take on Italian cuisine.
David, our server, was the best. This guy could serve me stale bread and I would still think he was great.
But no stale bread here. Far from it. Instead I ordered the corn cappallacci, which were little homemade pasta pockets with sweet corn and black truffle. I can still smell it now. It was one of the very best things I have ever eaten.
The restaurant’s signature dish are these delectable pommes soufflées. These puffed potatoes are a nod to the old building the restaurant occupies. They are so complicated that the chef that one out of every three batches gets thrown out. And they’re divine.
Boca was a delicious find I will not be forgetting.
I think it would be worth a trip to Cincinnati just for the corn cappallaci and pommes soufflées.
