Looking for a place to host a celebratory weekday lunch in Studio City in a few weeks. Probably most attendees will order panini or salads. Budget should be moderate. Service should be attentive and pleasant. Sound level should be low enough that the old folks can hear the conversation. Food should be very good, but doesn't need to be great, since the food is not the point of the celebration. Bokado seems to fit the bill. Any recent CH diners care to weigh in?
We had a collection of tapas there, today.
The server, Arturo, was attentive and friendly. We visited on a Saturday around noon, and it wasn't crowded. They brought out the tapas menu for us, even though that wasn't normally what they serve at that time of day.
zucchini packets - zucchini wrapped around spinach with pine nuts and raisins, topped with cheese and romesco sauce
sardines - with sweet onion and balsamic vinegar(?)
jambon and cheese sandwich - serrano ham, manchego cheese
roasted olives and chiles
patatas bravas - with a wonderful orange sauce
ensaladillas - a salad with potato slices, peas, lettuce, carrot slices and oiled tuna
They served us two kinds of bread, both made on the premises. One was a french baguette, the other a soft darker bread with raisins and nuts.
We wanted to try the chocolate and churros, even though it would have been out of place with the tapas, but they said "the machine is broken."
As a good quality Spanish option in our area, it seems fine. We'd go back.
