European travels inspired owner and certified-wine-specialist Jay Wisniewski’s theme for Caffe Boa and Caffe Boa Bistro. The seasonal menus of Caffe Boa and Caffe Boa Bistro are a delicious blend of Mediterranean and Italian regional preparations made with as many local, organic ingredients as possible. Extensive menus at both establishments have plenty of mouth-thrillers, including seafood, salads, and handmade in-house pastas. Start with pulled mozzarella ($10 Caffe Boa Bistro; $12 Caffe Boa) or shaved-fennel salad ($9 at Caffe Boa Bistro). For an entree, scope out the Voodoo penne, which combines roasted chicken with bell peppers, red onions, tomatoes, and penne rigate pasta in Cajun cream ($14–$16 Caffe Boa; $15 Caffe Boa Bistro), or try the strip steak with roasted asparagus, cipollini onions, crispy potatoes, and seasonal mushroom jus ($25 at Caffe Boa Bistro).
