La Bohemia was located very close to our hotel on the Jardin Union. We stopped in a couple times for a quick bit. The comida corrida (3-course, set price midday meal) was very good. Shortly after we were seated baskets of nice, crusty sliced bolillos were brought to the table along with 4 salsas, rojo, verde, a creamy habanero that was stunningly delicious once you got past the burn, and an equally potent salsa de chile de arbol. The bread basket seemed to be unending and we had great fun testing all the salsas before our meal arrived. The agua frescas were wonderful. I had an aqua de piña (fresh pineapple juice) that was refreshing without being cloyingly sweet. One couple in our group wanted agua de sandia (watermelon) which was not on the menu. The restaurant went ahead and made it anyway and it too was excellent. The comida corrida was tasty and the portion size, while not large, was certainly enough to satisfy and sustain.
We returned a few days later for a light dinner and while not quite a successful as our comida corrida, it was still a pleasant meal.
The location is ideal. Our service was good to very good and we even got some attention from the owner of the restaurant. The food will not knock your socks off, but it is well prepared, the flavors typical and traditional, and a good value.
