Providence Journal: O'Boy, What a wonderful restaurant The new Asian fusion eatery is on Westminster Street, in what's emerging as Providence's new Restaurant row. O'Boy is across from Tom's Bao Bao and The Malted Barley and a block away from Yoleni's, the Greek Marketplace, Gracie's, Birch and Bravo Bistro are further down the street, near Trinity Repertory Company, as is Rosalina's.
RI Monthly:Review: O'Boy in Providence It's no surprise that O'Boy found a home on Westminster street. In three short blocks, a multicultural revival has taken place: Korean food sidling up to Italian; Greek food juxtaposed with pizza; Chinese bao sitting alongside craft beer joints. But O'Boy is a microcosm all its own - a laboratory in which mutually exclusive cuisines marry into unexpected hybrids. Jae Choi, a graduate of Johnson and Wales, is the mad scientist in charge, intent on proving that heritage is an international affair and that no dish lives in a hermetically sealed bubble anymore.
MOTIF Magazine: Oh Boy! There's a new hot spot on Westminster! The dishes that come out of his kitchen are spectacular. I sampled the buckwheat crepe, filled with a house-made kimchee that was moderately spicy, but bursting with added flavor from caramelized onion and a nice crunchiness from fresh cabbage. My second selection, the house O'Steak, was a dream for a lover of met prepared rare. It was simply the perfect shade of pink and given a delicious char via blowtorch. Surrounded by a fingerling potato confit and a carrot jerk that was remarkable, the only thing that could complete it was a pickled pearl onion. And, it did.
