The new restaurant is the latest brainchild of Adam Merkel Restaurants. It’s located below Pinky’s Rooftop and adjacent to Pearl’s Deep Dive, which are both also owned and operated by Merkel. Bohemia’s bright interior is decorated with colorful tile work, plants, and woodworking that give it a bold and ornate atmosphere. It also features an open kitchen so guests can watch their meal being prepared.

“Our team has envisioned this concept for over five years, and it’s beyond exciting to see it all finally come to life,” Adam Merkel said in a press release. “The food tastes and feels incredibly authentic, while still maintaining a vibe that is true to our brand. We can’t wait to share Bohemia with the community!”
