Great for inspiring transcendentalists. Reliable on the antiquing front. Pretty solid place for saying the word “quaint.”
But perhaps more relevant: it’s about to get a lot better at date nights.
With a little help from Bondir Concord, Jason Bond’s cozy new den of bourbon cocktails and tableside truffle shaves, now soft-open.
Jason Bond. You know the guy. Culinary dark horse of Central Square. Fed you pork belly by a roaring fire in his tiny, original Bondir in Cambridge. Well, he’s about to do that again. But this time, he’s going to do it in a former firehouse filled with antiques and spaghetti.
The new place is huge. Which means huge new things like an open kitchen dispensing skate wing. And a granite bar dispensing bourbon-and-Cynar cocktails named Giuseppe Goes to Trinidad. And a fireplace with a single-seat cushion at its hearth. (Pro tip: bring a lap.)
Take that date over to the century-old wooden church pew within crackling distance of the crackling fire. That’s where a man holding a French truffle knife will ask if he can have the privilege of shaving some white truffles over your homemade spaghetti.
Give the man what he wants.
