(noun) 1. an Italian hole-less doughnut
"When American doughnuts die, they go to heaven and turn into Bomboloni." - Fabio Viviani, Executive Chef & Partner
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.
Today, BomboBar serves the classic bomboloni in mini form & served warm with a variety of dipping sauces to choose from. Our house made gelato shakes are a combination of flavors mixed with milk for a frothy, crave-able sipper with a variety of flavors that update seasonally.
Pups are welcomed too for doggie doughnuts, woof-cream, and dairy-free gelato... making BomboBar a perfect stop no matter the time of day.
