We stopped in at Little Bo's because everyone talks about the great, casual vibe and live music. Located on the west end of busy Front Street (across from the Grand Traverse Pie Company), there is a good-sized parking lot in the back.
When we were first seated, we were a little unsure. While the front was a comfortable bar area and the band was just tuning up, there was a room on the side with a really tacky painted mural (sorry if that offends the artist!), red checkered tablecloths and big table with a party of kids. Huh? Seemed a little late for the kiddies to still be up, but...
My burger and sweet potato fries were great. Our friends loved the gnocchi with thick slices of toast. One thing that was rather confusing: my husband wanted something different and asked about specials. The waitress almost seemed reluctant to tell him that the chef had a tuna steak special -- rare, with a spicy sauce -- which he ordered and loved! Later the young chef even came out to thank him for ordering it. We couldn't figure out why they seemed to be keeping the special a "secret". Weird. But we were impressed!
Is Little Bo's totally unique? No, probably not, But it is casual, lively, very friendly and the food and music was great! We'll definitely go back. And next time, we'll ask about the chef's specials!
