Even though this French spot has been open a while, it’s so bright and clean inside that whenever we walk in, we always get a feeling similar to peeling the plastic off a new TV. Cafe Boho is a little pricey, but it’s one of the better options in the neighborhood when you’re looking for a quieter place to have a meal. If you’ve got a few people with you, split the mussels to start and get the pork chop as a main.
