Boco Bistro, Saratoga Springs -10/15/2016
After a trip to Barcelona, Spain in December 2011, Chef Roslyn Zecchini and husband David Zecchini set in action the idea of opening Boca Bistro, a Spanish bistro and tapas bar. Immersing themselves in Spanish Culture and cuisine and by June 2012 Boco Bistro was born as a Spanish Bistro and Bar that blends vintage Spanish elements with a distinctive contemporary spirit.
The Building was built in 1864 and was first used a grocery store. The owner used to reside above the store and conducted the street level grocery for an number of years.

When they remodeled the restaurant reclaimed wood was used to construct tables, the wine cabinet and glass racks over the bar.
Warm bread and marinated olives are brought out to start our meal.
Kevin and Kristie checking out the menu.
We were seated in the 2nd dinning room and the decor was an interesting mix of exposed bricks and mix-matched colorful used doors decoring the walls.
On the ceiling copper lobster baskets served a lighting fixture adding a warm glow to the restaurant.
Hoa ordered a red bottle of wine for our table.
