(noun) 1. an Italian hole-less doughnut
Since 2015, BomboBar has been a staple in Chicago's West Loop 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 heart. BomboBar serves their bomboloni infused, or topped, with various filling flavors that are ever-changing on a seasonal basis.
In addition to the signature menu item and namesake, BomboBar is also known for its coffee, housemade gelato, and over-the-top seasonal chocolate beverages that are sure to catch the eye. In the winter, Hotter Chocolate and Hotter Chocolate Bombs bring locals and tourists flocking to the window while families and friends cool down in the summer with the Gelato Shakes. BomboBar incorporates a "Build Your Own" adventure experience and allows guests to make each experience individualized and customizable. Most recently, Chef Fabio and the DineAmic team introduced a lineup of savory items to the menu including a breakfast sandwich, spicy chicken sandwich and the BomboBurger, a decadent burger served on a sesame bun.
Pups are welcomed too for doggie doughnuts, woof-cream, and dairy-free gelato... making BomboBar a perfect stop no matter the time of day.
