SWEET OR SAVORY. NO NEED TO CHOOSE.
What started as side-concept and fast-casual walk-up eatery has now grown into much more. BomboBar's West Loop Walk-Up Window offers coffee, gelato, over-the-top seasonal chocolate beverages, and savory sandwiches, in addition to Executive Chef Fabio Viviani’s famous Bomboloni. A bomboloni (bomb-bo-loni) is a holeless Italian doughnut infused with various filling flavors. The concept name and identity stems from the story of the “Bombo” and the secret recipe ingredient Fabio keeps close to heart. BomboBar West Loop's exterior changes based on the season - rotating between a BomboCafe and a cozily heated enclosure. Pups are welcomed for doggie doughnuts, woof-cream, and dairy-free gelato.
You're In Good Hands
When restaurant and DineAmic Hospitality owners Lucas Stoioff and David Rekhson first created West Loop's Bar Siena in 2015, they didn’t know which concept they were most excited for – the restaurant or their vision for Bar Siena’s side-concept, BomboBar. The playful menu changes seasonally, offering various gelato and bomboloni flavors as well as the social media phenomenon “Hotter Chocolates” in the winter and refreshing chocolate beverages in the summer. Craving something savory? Don’t miss out on the Bombo Breakfast Sandwich or The Bombo Burger. BomboBar proudly partners with local West Loop coffee roasters, Limitless Coffee & Tea, and continues to collaborate on exclusive blends and coffee options for patrons.
EXECUTIVE CHEF FABIO VIVIANI
Chef Fabio Viviani has possessed a passion for food since his childhood growing up in Florence, Italy. Although a well-respected businessman in Italy, he was ready for a change and in 2013, teamed up with one of Chicago’s most innovative restaurant consulting groups, DineAmic Hospitality. Starting with Siena Tavern, DineAmic Hospitality owners and Viviani knew they had just begun both a successful business partnership and lifelong friendship. In 2015, Chef Viviani continued to fuel the DineAmic Hospitality brand by opening Bar Siena, BomboBar, and Prime & Provisions with the team. Perhaps best known for his television debut on Bravo’s hit reality series Top Chef – earning the “Fan Favorite” title – his on-screen appearances have propelled him to become one of the fastest growing household names in the country.
