Bar Bites at Bocca

We stopped by the new Italian place in our neighborhood, Bocca on Friday night for an after work drink. I got there a little before 7:00 and there were plenty of seats still available at the bar.

I ordered a glass of Tocai Fruili and waited a couple minutes before Mr Trekker showed up. The space is pretty nice. The walls are painted red with gold accents and the bartender was engaging and entergetic. Many of the tables were filled with people dining and it was very lively.

After Mr. T showed up the bartender brought over some complimentary bar snacks for us! Not your ordinary peanuts either.

This whole spread was just for us!

Fried olives, bruchetta, ham and cheese croquettes, fried mussels and some weird cubes of bread with garlic, olive oil and orange maybe?

To be honest nothing was amazing but the croquettes were decent and it was free! That's hard to come by in the city! We didn't stay for dinner since we wanted to rest up for our flight to Florida the next day but we'll probably stop back again since the service was so friendly.
