DINER: The Highly Anticipated New Vision Of “Boneta” Softly Opens Off Water Street
The new Boneta had a soft friends and family tonight (without food). Opening night proper is Friday. I couldn’t stay long this evening, but I accidentally slipped on a glass of Red Truck IPA and took a few shots on the way down. It looks lovely, and it’s especially comforting to once again be able to sip at the same wooden bar of old. The look is a little Spartan, which isn’t entirely out of character. We should expect the walls to be dressed with Boneta’s original Charles Forsberg works shortly and then I suppose we’ll know the full vibe. Plus I suspect there’ll be lots of people in there, and I’m told that lends something to any atmosphere. I wouldn’t mind a gilt framed mirror or two on the ceiling, but you can’t always get what you want (the old location is keeping those). A proper dogpile is in store for Mark, Neil, Jason et al when they unlock their doors for the first time tomorrow. We wish them the very best of luck in surviving the bumrush.
