Boca's still beautiful. But...

We hadn't dined at Boca Restaurant in months, and went back Friday for a meal in the main dining room, which is set at a two- or three-course meal ($55 for the two course), both of which automatically include dessert. (We normally eat in the more casual trattoria.) Beautiful food, beautiful people, as always. But the portions remain a little too small for our tastes - much more so in the main restaurant, I think, than in the trattoria. And yes, we did eat a fair amount of bread, when it finally did come out the second time around. The food there is delicious. And at the risk of sounding sacreligious, it is almost bordering on too fussy. It's certainly not the kind of place my parents would ever want to go. They're value-for-money, no-nonsense folks. They wouldn't find that here.

And having eaten at Hugo the previous week, right across the street, I have to say, I'd choose Hugo over Boca next time.
