Chef Joymalya Banerjee claims this menu as snapshots from his personal memories and the food is that he has enjoyed, which has been his comfort food all through his life. The basic industrial style interiors goes with the modern trend of minimalistic look. The menu has options of quick office lunch which gets served in dabbas and a complete meal in themselves with choices between veg and non-veg. The main menu has sections like 'Dil Laga Ke' ( large portions), 'Halka Phulka' ( small portions) and 'Oneke Milay' ( sharing plates which can be shared by many). The 'Malai Mutton Chaat', 'Lanka Chingri Batter Fry' or soft 'Pork Belly' is must-have from the starters.
The ambience is good enough and the staffs provide a very prompt service. Both Take Away and Home Delivery are available.
Went for a lunch date - started with a Kolkata Biriyani cocktail, Gondhoraj martini and the Kolkata afternoon. The kolkata afternoon was spot on with the hint of green chilli and the martini was a perfect afternoon relaxer. For appetisers, expected some more blast of flavor for the aam kashundi chicken escallops but the royal bengal sliced pork is perfect with mustard sauce. For mains, the bacon wrapped chicken with aam kashundi reduction was to die for. Blended perfectly well with the quinoa rice. Dessert was a little disappointing, as what we wanted were not available and aam-arel custard wasn't up to the mark. Only saviour - the fresh chunks of mango. Drinks and food for two at Rs. 3000/-
1. It doesn't accept cards. Major problem 2. They had no cold drinking water when the temperature outside was 38 degrees at least. we had to persuade them to get us a cold bottle from outside. 3. Starter was ok. Mochar ghonto au gratin was v good. The rest of dishes came cold, not even warmed up. 4. they could not give us dessert after persuading us to have it. Apparently the kitchen failed to prepare the patishaptas even after three attempts. 5. They did not remind us to take the unopened bottle of water with us even though we had been charged for it. 6. Not recommending it to anyone.
Visited Bohemian on 18th may evening. Heard about this restaurant from friends and expectation was high. First surprise faced when told the credit card is not accepted as the machine not working. Second surprise faced when entering the restaurant as the ground floor part is non functional. Main part of the restaurant is on the 1st floor. Decor - very medium. Service - friendly people, takes a loooong time to serve. If you go there, you must have good enough time in hand. A long menu, tried to fusion bengali cuisine with various other cusines or ingredients. Bold try - but not always producing good results. For example "Pagla Mama r Biriyani" tastes good as a mutton rice preparation, but shouldn't be called biriyani. 'Different kind of Paturi' tastes bad - the fish smells a bit - may be not so fresh. Chicken and Prawn starters were much better. I might drop in once more to taste the 'pressure cooker mutton' which they actually serve in a pressure cooker - looks inviting:-) Must mention that place is not very expensive - resonable cost. Overall experience - medium. Go for it once and decide if you want to visit again!
Bohemian always stands differently among the popular restaurants and food joints in the city of Joy since its beginning due to its innovative recipes and different tastes. The fusion of various known tastes in Indian and Continental foods are to be cherished in this restaurant. Chef Joy is creative by nature and is passionate about creating new formulations constantly to serve newer items to the customer's taste. The personal touch of the Chef and the other staff of the restaurant not only help them in understanding the customer's choice but also to receive the feedback in enhancing the quality of food and standard of the restaurant.
As it is regional cuisines get a miss in comparison to global cuisines as world gastronomy is much more accessible to us but a true foodie is aware of his surroundings and likes to dabble in various cuisines no matter how outlandish. Increase your culinary knowledge by savouring some regional Indian fare especially Bengali food, which has a huge fan base in India. One might think Kolkata, which is the home ground of Bengali cuisine, should have a plethora of Bengali restaurants but it is not so. There is surprisingly shortage of traditional regional eateries in the city, however, to take care of that ?Bohemian? has come to save the day. This wonderful charming eatery deals exclusively in Bengali food and is located in Old Ballygunge. This place has done a lot to change the gastronomic scenario of Kolkata.
Genius of celebrated Chef Joy Banerjee, Bohemian is like a breath of fresh air in Kolkata?s fine dining circuit. The menu is unconventional and gives the diners no complaint in terms of creativity. There is a lot on offer and even after multiple trips to Bohemian, there will be something left to explore. The Bengali part of the menu gives some space to Continental fare as well, leaning heavily on seafood preparations. Food comes across as fusion of both these cuisines. Get straight into the menu with the appetizers like, banana stem patties, chili pickle n cheese baked crab, daab chingri dynamites, grilled cheesey mushrooms in aam kashundi marinade, mutton wraps and royal Bengal sliced pork fry. Dig in further with, chital meat steak with fenugreek jus, chicken supreme, sliced pork in banana leaf envelopes, kancha lanka mangsho, pork vindaloo and prawns with smoky orange.
The menu is simply divine and unlike anything you have ever seen before. The variety is immense which keeps you interested until next visit. Even Bohemian?s dessert section sees some of chef?s brilliant touch by combining the earthiness of Bengali sweets with finesse of Continental concoctions. Mustard & tender coconut mousse, aamarel custard, pantua baked Alaska and darjeeling tea & ?gold flake? panna cotta are some of their must haves. Enter Bohemian?s rather simply decorated dining space and take in the bright yellow walls and string of colourful paper lanterns overhead. All the focus at innovation is put in the food where it counts. Bohemian comes off a bit pricey but that?s the price one has to pay for brilliance.
One might assume looking at the casual décor of Bohemian that it’s not attention-worthy but here you would be wrong. Bohemian is a gastronomic revelation of Chef Joy Banerjee, who with this small restaurant has changed the Bengali food scene of Kolkata forever. His modern fusion take on traditional Bengali cuisine is nothing short of brilliant. Food is unconventional and simply fantastic. If possible, try little bit of everything. This superb marriage of traditional Bengali cuisine with Continental techniques should be witnessed with someone special. We guarantee you, your date will be impressed for a Special Occasion. Find the restaurant tucked in Old Ballygunge, Kolkata.
