“Super cool gastro-pub”
Bodega has been a part of the short north since 2005 when Sangeeta Lakhani and Collin Castore decided to share their eclectic take on great food and great beer. Almost all our food is made from scratch, either by us or by someone near us, using the best and freshest ingredients we can source. We use antibiotic free/hormone free meats and get our produce as locally as the seasons allow. We love Craft Belgian/European specialty beer, fine wine and inventive cocktails. Our servers and bartenders are all level 1 Cicerone certified and are here to help you. We want you to enjoy your drink and your meal. If at any time you need help or if you don’t like something, please let us know. We want you to have the best possible experience.

2 beers, 2 Bloody Marys, 2 chicken and

My 2 cents: First, I need to shed a tear for the old Bodega. I hate to say it, but after their recent Summer 2014 renovation, I'm a much bigger fan of the 'old' Bodega than the 'new' Bodega. In my opinion, the changes in menu, decor, and service style are all for the worse. It went from a sit-down restaurant full of character and unique menu items to a more wide-open, fast-food-ish vibe - go to 10 different stations to order your food (exaggeration...but its an odd system) - and now you can choose between chicken, burgers, fish, chicken...chicken...some more chicken. The menu struck me as a KFC sprinkled with a few random, healthy items like kale salad. No one at the table was completely dissatisfied with our food, but certainly none of us were blown away like we previously were with the old menu. I typically have a positive edge to my reviews...but this is the first restaurant on my blog so far that I would not recommend to my friends!
Trendy and cool but gets crowded so head there early
I haven't been here since they re-did it, but it used to be good. RIP dollar grilled cheeses.
