BoMA Arrives in the SoEND

It's here!

Right on schedule, BoMA soft opens today in the old Pho Republique space at 1415 Washington St. Perhaps trying to put a spin on the "small plates" trend, they go one step further to offer "tiny plates" featuring mysteries like eggplant with "caper crunch" and fontina tots with "gorgonzola dunk."

There are larger plates, too, and 16 draft beers, and retractable windows that overlook Washington St., and a dangerous-sounding Smoking Margarita. As for the name, it's an African word that means "fortified enclosure." [Thrillist]
