Boka

Boka serves creative, contemporary American food using seasonal Midwestern ingredients in an elegant but non-formal setting. There are different dining sections, a bar area, and a cozy back patio open during good weather. The cocktail and wine program is strong and they have citrus or herbal house made sodas. The sound level is conducive to conversation with adequate lighting and the restrooms are located downstairs.

A notable dish is the duck entree (for two) that comes with an array of sides of the duck used in different ways. There is a seasonal tasting menu if you wish to let the kitchen build your meal. The dessert menu has special beverages, cheese and desserts ranging from savory to sweet.
