Chef-owner Jason Bond is currently spending most of his time at his newest restaurant Bondir Concord (which I still have yet to visit!). They have hired executive chef Brendan Joy, to run Bondir Cambridge. Bryan and I happened to visit earlier this summer and were really impressed with the food.
The menu changes daily. Dinner consists of a 4-course prix fix ($72) where you choose four different courses from the menu. Bryan and I purposely chose different things so we could try each others’ dishes, effectively giving ourselves an 8-course tasting menu.
I can’t remember details anymore, but I do remember really enjoying the meal. The ingredients were really seasonal, the dishes were creative, and the flavors came together nicely. Now that the weather is getting colder, that cozy dining room with the roaring fireplace becomes all the more beckoning!
Chef Brendan Joy is doing a great job continuing the values that Chef Jason Bond set, yet injecting his own spin on the food.
