Restaurant Review: Bosco's Bones & Brew
By J.D. Wolfe
By now you all know I love to eat. In a manner of speaking, food is life. Over the years I have eaten at Bosco's Bones & Brew many times, for quiet dinners with my wife, friends, company groups and private banquets. There is nothing like a good well-prepared New York Peppercorn or Rib Eye Steak to get my attention. Let's us not forget a nicely prepared baked potato with sour cream, butter and chives. Add some fresh veggies preceded by a delicious garden salad or soup of the day and how can you go wrong? You can't! The food is really excellent. Did someone say RIBS? Oh my goodness!
There is something enchanting about eating at a nice dining establishment outside of an urban setting. Countryside dining has a way of making everything that is good even better.
Brothers Daniel and George who now operate Bosco's have continued to manage this restaurant in the same manner that has earned its fine reputation over the years. I highly recommend a visit. If you go in the evenings, especially weekends, a reservation is advised. On weekend nights a live band performs in the bar area; Karaoke on Thursdays.
Although I have enjoyed many evening meals at Bosco's, this time I stopped by on Saturday morning. Yes, Bosco's is now open for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Lunch service begins at 11:30 a.m. seven days a week.
On this day a friend of mine and I decided to try the breakfast fare. Sunol is special; a quaint community with an occasional train going right through the heart of the town. Bosco's offers a typical breakfast menu with eggs, meats, pancakes and all the related goodies. They also offer a nice assortment of omelets named after streets in Sunol. You can order the Kilkare Road Omelet featuring diced chicken, bell peppers, onions, cheese, etc. Do you prefer fish? Then order the Main Street with shrimp, crab, mushrooms, and more. You can also try one of the other omelets as well - The Foothill Road or The Niles Canyon to name two more.
Along with my favorite breakfast of poached eggs, hash browns and really well-cooked bacon, I felt obliged to taste a Bosco pancake. A single pancake as a side order did not disappoint - really big and fluffy. A good buttermilk pancake that is cooked well is always a winner.
Our waiter, George, took very good care of us and whether he or one of the other excellent waitpersons helps you, service is impeccable and you will not go wrong, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner.
So, my fellow food lovers I end by misquoting William Shakespeare, "To be, or Three B's". I vote Three B's - Bosco's Bones & Brew. That is the answer. Enjoy!
