BO-beau Kitchen+Garden La Mesa

Your taste buds will thank you as you indulge in sophisticated comfort food at BO-Beau in La Mesa Village. Unwind in an industrial chic setting indoors, or dine alfresco while your little artists adorn the chalkboards lining the fence. Little vehicle enthusiasts will be over the moon for the real school bus open for climbing and imaginative play in the garden area! While the kids play, indulge in one of Bo Beau’s enticing selection of cocktails. “Doctor’s Orders” is a zesty orange concoction that is served in an apothecary bottle. For immense culinary satisfaction, have the to-die-for Crispy Brussel Sprouts with pancetta and balsamic port reduction.The kids will be pleased with their food choices as they pick from standard fare like chicken nuggets, or more refined options like “Pan Roasted Fresh Catch + Broccolini.”
