Occupying several floors of a breathtakingly designed 1930s West Village townhouse, Bobo transports guests to a French country home, where a meal of rustic classics like coq au vin and tarte tatin always begin with Champagne and cocktails.
Bobo opened in 2007 to crowds clamoring to enjoy its decadent styling and dinner party atmosphere. The restaurant has grown to become a West Village staple known for classic French country cooking, expertly made cocktails, and neighborly hospitality - a hallmark of other Casa Nela restaurants, which include Rosemary’s, Claudette and Roey’s.
Like its sister restaurants, Bobo embraces its residential setting, paying homage to La Maison de Campagne - a neighborhood restaurant inspired by nature and by family. The restaurant's natural French country decor unfolds over several floors and rooms, from the downstairs bar to the parlor level dining room, year-round garden and jewel-box Coco bar.
Bobo is well known for hosting elegant private events and has a variety of rooms fit for a range of occasions, from weddings to bridal showers, corporate dinners to birthday celebrations, even fashion shows to product launches.
The restaurant serves L'Apero (Happy Hour) daily from 5pm to 7pm, and Dinner nightly from Tuesday to Saturday.
The restaurant's cellar offers French wines from small and interesting producers alongside more well known houses, with a selection of excellent wines for everyday drinking. The bar's seasonal cocktail lists have been celebrated since the opening in 2007, and today focus on using French products in novel ways to create modern classics like the Epice Margarita.
Bobo’s General Manager is the ever gracious host, David Robeano, and the Executive Chef is Miguel Samanez.
Dekar Design created the interiors and Paper White, Ltd developed the branding.
