My friend Mel and I had dinner at Bones the other night. She’s an old friend from Denver who lives in Chicago now, and we still do some work together. She has also started blogging her Tulia Apothecary concept at http://tuliaapothecary.wordpress.com/. (Yes, I even still help with naming jobs!)
The company was awesome. Food wise, it was a pleasant meal and could have been great although it kinda needed a little more deliciousness or pizazz. One of the two. The menu is mostly noodle bowls. We had the Ba Mee ( Hoisin Melted Leeks, Local Kale, Pickled Daikon, Cilantro, Enoki Mushrooms, Vegetable Broth) and the Ramen (Poached Lobster, Edamame, Miso Lobster Broth). The food was delicately seasoned, the lobster bowl the better of the two dishes, and the Arugula salad and the chicken wing starters were yummy. Actually Mel even ordered a second salad. And the wine was nice. All in all a little pricey though, at just over $100 for some noodle bowls. But you might want to give it a try. If you live in Denver, that is.
Or come over to me. Yes, I know, also in Denver, but I’m going to try out some noodle bowls at home, and get some kiddie chopsticks. I think the kids might dig that. No Bones about it!
