We checked out Boon with all its rave reviews. When we got there, there were a few empty tables but in the time it took us to order dinner the rest of the place filled up and a long line formed outside. This place is very casual and minimal I would say, no artificial lighting or decorations on the wall (although the wall itself did have cool a paint job). It looked more like a rustic beach house with the wooden walls and no windows except for the entrance.
we started with the raddiochio salad with hazelnuts, goat cheese and champagne vinagrette. The hazelnuts and goat cheese were sweet and the champagne vinagrette was sour. The combination worked for me but not for Joe.
this mac and cheese was just kinda sad. it was watery and flavorless. sigh, so sad. I had such high hopes for this dish.
Grass fed burger with aged white cheddar, wild arugula on a toasted milk bun. the burger was tender and juicy. the bread kinda overpowered the burger.
the truffle fries came with ketchup and house made aioli that was amazing. the truffle fries were crispy and delicious with the aioli. the aioli was so good that we asked for another small bowl.
so my first bite, all I could taste was the sea salt. Joe agreed with me that this dish was way too salty. Once we brushed off all the sea salt, it was more bearable. I’m a huge fan of any dessert with chocolate but this was kind of a disappointment. The cream on the side was great but pretty much any time we tried the brownie, it was way too salty.
