IN LOVE WITH BOND 45 - Yummy!!!!!!


I’ve fallen in love with the Italian cuisine that’s served at Bond 45, a New York Italian Kitchen & Bar and it’s more than just the central location — 221 West 46th Street — I have to share that the staff, starting with the host made my experience so enjoyable that I am planning a return to check out the live entertainment that goes on below, on the second floor.  

For the old timers, you might recall that it was originally located on 45th street in the former historic Bond Clothing Store (1948-1977) before relocating to 46th street.

But first, let’s talk about food. They offer an all-day menu, brunch, sit-down breakfast, grab-and-go breakfast, beverages, signature cocktails, and a dizzying selection of desserts. 

Best known for its vegetable antipasto bar which offers a rotating selection of market vegetables and features an expansive menu with reasonable prices and generous portions, don’t miss the roasted heirloom carrots and sautéed spinach. Under the speciality appetizers, I am still thinking about the grilled octopus on Sicilian hummus. To be frank, you can dine from the speciality appetizers and be perfectly content, it’s that good and the prices (again) are heaven-sent. 

The main menu offers a selection from the sea and land. The portions are generous enough that two people might comfortably share especially if they’ve had a starter which we highly recommend. 

From the sea, there are four, first-rate choices:  Salmon (True North), Bronzino Al Forno, Dover Sole, and Red Snapper Livornese. 

From the land where you can add spaghetti Pomodoro ($7.50) to any dish, there are six choices: VEAL CUTLET MILANESE (tomatoes, basil),  FILET MIGNON (cacio e pepe fries), NY-STRIP STEAK (30 days dry-aged, cacio e pepe fries), BACON CHEESEBURGER (tillamook cheddar, cacio e pepe fries), CHICKEN PEPPERONI PARMIGIANA (burrata mozzarella, guanciiale bread crumbs), and

LEMON CHICKEN (peewee potatoes, lemon-herb sauce, bread crumbs).

There’s also a robust selection of pizza (5), salads, nine total with my favorite being the Shrimp Nicoise Salad, and pasta (9) with the creamiest Spaghetti Carbonara that I’ve tasted, outside of Rome, Italy.
