Bohemian Pizza in Litchfield, CT
Driving through the picturesque hills of northwestern Connecticut, the snow begins to fall heavier on the windshield of the Jeep, transforming our view into the perfect New England winter scene. Just past the quintesential village of Litchfield, we turn into the parking lot of an intriguing-looking restaurant. As the Jeep finds it way into a spot with a sign that reads "Jeep Parking Only", I knew we were in the right place.
The slam of the Jeep's doors were hushed by the falling snow and signs promising warm bread lured its hungry winter road warriors into the restaurant. A wonderfully casual atmosphere from the first step inside, we ushered the kids (ages 2 and 5) past the open kitchen, past the sign that read seat yourself and towards the warmth of a fire burning in the double-sided stone fireplace. As the kids settled into the black and white cow-printed soft seat covers at our booth, we were welcomed by warm dark beams and walls covered in album covers, posters and a variety of other miscellany.
From warm bread made from pizza dough, dusted with sea salt and dipped in garlic-y olive oil to Doc's Hard Cider to one of the best butternut squash soups I have ever tasted and blackened chicken served over penne, we hadn't even considered ordering pizza! Although, there were plenty of toppings to choose from including Nodin'e locally-smoked applewood bacon.
In addition to unique decor, good food and a great drink selection, Bohemian Pizza has friendly staff, a casual atmosphere and also hosts a variety of bands.
You can also call ahead to plan a limo ride. Bohemian Pizza offers a safe and sober ride to and / or from its doors so you don't have to worry about driving. Call (860) 567-0589 for pricing and to make arrangements.
