Boca Restaurant & Bar’s culinary artisans sculpt savory peaks of authentic Costa Rican cuisine from fresh, quality ingredients. Chefs can tailor the Boca surtido, or sampler platter, to fill two or four bellies or ravenous laptop sleeves with traditional dishes such as beef and chicken fajitas and breaded tilapia. Appetizer opening acts such as the dados de queso—nimble plantain performers who balance atop tottering fried cheese cubes—keep palates entertained as sides such as rice and beans or guacamole form an edible entourage around entrees. For the main course, the surtido is served stocked with beef and chicken fajitas, breaded tilapia, plantains, black bean dip, chimichurri, and more. Finally, available deserts include hot rice pudding, a three-milk cake, and a caramel flan for a surprisingly sweet entree epilogue.
An island vibe permeates Boca Restaurant & Bar's bamboo-lined eatery, stuffed with wicker chairs and tables between vibrant orange walls. Live performers entertain ears on Fridays and Saturdays, and on College Wednesdays, a DJ spins disks or misplaced tortillas until closing.
