(noun) 1. an Italian hole-less doughnut
Since 2015, BomboBar has been a staple in Chicago's West Loop - Fulton Market neighborhood. The quaint walk-up window started as DineAmic Hospitality principals David Rekhson and Lucas Stoioff's playful idea stemming from Top Chef Fan Favorite and Executive Chef Fabio Viviani's famous bomboloni. A bomboloni (pronounced bomb-bo-loni) is a holeless Italian doughnut and first made an appearance on sister-venue Siena Tavern's dessert menu. After receiving praise and compliments on the dessert dish, Rekhson and Stoioff decided to turn an extra dessert prep area at their upcoming West Loop concept, Bar Siena, into a side concept focusing on the item. The concept name and identity centers around the story of the "bombo" and the secret recipe Fabio keeps close to his heart. BomboBar serves their bomboloni infused with various filling flavors that are ever-changing on a seasonal basis.
With six bomboloni varieties, 12 gelato flavors, and a trio of gelato shakes. Fresh bombos in White Chocolate Malt, Lemon Pistachio, Maple Candied Bacon, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Cherry Cheesecake, and Cookies & Cream will be available a la carte or by the half dozen so guests can try all six flavors. The unique gelato shakes are a combination of flavors mixed with milk for a frothy, crave-able sipper. On offer are Rainbow, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Salted Caramel Cinnamon, each topped with a mini bomboloni. The walk-up window continues to serve fresh coffee, lattes, espresso, tea, and cold brew in partnership with La Colombe Coffee Roasters
Pups are welcomed too for doggie doughnuts, woof-cream, and dairy-free gelato... making BomboBar a perfect stop no matter the time of day.
