There's a buzz going around town and it's huge.
Bosco's Bones and Brew is back in business!
Owners Mary Truong and Allen Feng are extremely excited to be
re-opening this once popular eating establishment nearly a year
after the previous owners closed the business.
Co-Owner Allen, who is also the chef, is part owner of two
other very popular Bay Area restaurants, Café Enrico
in Alameda and Dino's in Castro Valley.
This is Mary's first restaurant venture and when I first spoke
with her by telephone and later at the restaurant she sounded
as excited as an expectant mother taking care of last minute
arrangements and finalizing details for the grand re-opening
to take place this coming Thursday.
Mary also assured me that the old west theme and décor
would not be changed in the slightest and sure enough when I
walked through the doors of the saloon there was good old Bosco
proudly perched atop the stunning wooden bar. As most of you
know Bosco was one of Sunol's major claim to fame when a town
prank turned serious and a dog was named our unofficial mayor.
Bosco has long gone to doggy heaven but his life size likeness
has been turned into a beer tap, yes you are absolutely correct,
when his rear left leg is lifted you get a pint of foamy, frothy,
amber colored beer.
The new Bosco's Bones and Brew has a quite extensive menu,
which includes Italian and French cuisine, steak and seafood,
12 delicious appetizers, soups, salads, several delectable desserts
and steak and lobster combo dinners. They will also be offering
early bird specials that include an entrée, coffee or
tea and dessert for $11.95 or $12.95 and a Saturday and Sunday
buffet brunch. But opening night must not be missed because
on this evening only, Mary and Allen are offering a buffet style
meal for $8.00 per person that will include several items from
the menu, such as prime rib, salmon, prawns, salad, pasta and
desserts to give the public a taste of what they have to offer.
The restaurant's regular hours are as follows: lunch is served
Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; dinner is
served from Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m.,
Friday and Saturday from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday
from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. The early bird special menu will be available
Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00 and their Saturday
and Sunday brunch, which is buffet style, will be served from
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Reservations are accepted for parties
of 8 or more and plans for Holiday dining will be forthcoming.
