Bona Restaurant enriches the Bay Area’s culinary landscape with a varied menu packed with authentic Eastern European cuisine, ranging from a spread of distinctive soups to traditional Polish entrees. Each savory recipe emphasizes the fusion of mixed meats and winter vegetables energized with a variety of spices. In the lunch menu, noontime noshers can refuel for a busy day transcribing bird conversations with a plate of Bona’s pierogi ($6.95) or pork-and-beef-stuffed cabbage ladled with a piquant tomato or mushroom sauce ($7.95).
Later on, the dinner menu sates evening appetites with the breaded pork cutlets served with sauerkraut ($17.95), while the hearty Hunters’ stew made beef, pork, and sausage the protein necessary to lift palets of protein shakes ($14.95). At all hours, Bona Restaurant encourages thirsty patrons to imbibe Polish beers such as EB, Zywiec, Okocim, or Lezajsk brews while unwinding in the restaurant’s inviting ambience ($5).
