With the recent news of Bohemia being voted as best restaurant in the Channel Islands, the restaurant now outranks some of the world’s most famous restaurants, cementing Bohemia on the international culinary map.
The restaurant has moved up 13 places in the guide’s ‘Top 50 UK Restaurants 2018’ list, its highest ever ranking since opening in 2003 and is the only restaurant in the Channel Islands to be featured.
The list recognises the best talent throughout the UK and is highly regarded by chefs and diners. The top entries and award winners were revealed on 17 August 2017.
Head Chef Steve Smith said: ‘To say we are delighted is an understatement! We are absolutely thrilled to have been placed at number 11 in the guide’s top restaurants list. This is a huge achievement, especially as we have earned this score through editor appraisal and customer feedback and opinions. That is what makes the award that much more significant when you know it’s come from customers.’
Lawrence Huggler, Owner of Bohemia, said: ‘Steve Smith has taken cooking in Jersey to another level since joining Bohemia. Bohemia is now ranked at the pinnacle of restaurants in the UK by numerous guides including the Good Food Guide and has a leading reputation at an international level for its food and service. Food aficionados are travelling from all over the world to dine at Bohemia. I think as Jersey people we often take for granted what is on our doorstep but we are so lucky. I am immensely proud of what the amazing team at Bohemia are achieving every day, with even more to come.’
To qualify for the awards, restaurants need to be independently run and offer regional or local produce and Bohemia is very lucky in this regard being based in Jersey with its world famous dairy, seafood and Jersey Royals.
The awards are voted for by the public who submit nominations for their favourite restaurants. Visitors to the restaurant can sample Bohemia’s three-course set lunch from only £24.95 per person. The set lunch includes lavish dishes such as Duck breast and leg with rhubarb, turnip and pistachio or Red mullet with sweetcorn, king oyster and sea herbs. Steve Smith has also created a truly outstanding dining experience with his ingredient and flavour driven tasting menus which are priced from £79 for seven courses.
The restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday, Noon until 2.30pm for lunch, and 6.30pm until 10.30pm for dinner.
