The appetizer a baked flatbread with feta and a sweet balsamic reduction. It was served with hummus. It was fantastic and we looked forward to our meal.
We decided we would wait 5 more minutes before we left since we would be late for our movie. Our our food came just in the nick of time.
I had the lamb chops with spaetzle. My husband had perogies and bratwurst.
Was it delicious? I don't know because I was too busy cramming it down my throat so I wouldn't be late for the movie. I don't know about you, but I really don't enjoy going to an expensive restaurant and not taking the time to savor the meal. This is so disappointing because I really enjoy this type of food, and I was looking forward to the spaetzle. Instead all I can remember is the lamb appeared to be quite tender and the spaetzel was greasy.
When we rushed out the door, there wasn't even anyone with whom to make a complaint.
The evening wasn't a total loss. We were able to go see the movie Lincoln with Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field.

"This is a profoundly thought-provoking portrait of 16th president and his drive to end slavery and unite the country."
Every American needs to see this movie. Not only are all the actors superb, but the dialogue is thought provoking and well written. Except for the opening scene, all the action takes place through dialogue, and yet, even for our ever decreasing modern attention spans, the movie never was boring or slow. It is a look into the lives of all the main players in a way we have never seen before. The personal story of the president tugs at the heart and one is filled with respect as he succeeds in doing that which seems insurmountable.
Sadly, I was embarrassed for the woman behind me during the scene where General Lee surrenders at Appomattox. As he surrendered she said, "Who is that man on the horse?" I'm shaking my head in bewilderment at her statement even now as I write.
5 out of 5 stars
The Bohemian Brewery
2.5 out of 5 stars only because I went there once before and loved it. This time the service was so poor, the rating went down.
