“Bo-Beau is an excellent little restaurant in the Ocean Beach neighborhood in San Diego. The atmosphere, service, drinks and food are excellent. It's a jewell of a restaurant. I had their famous brussels sprouts and was telling the hostess how much I enjoyed them so she kindly provided me with a copy of the recipe.”
