Food.Fun.Stuff: Bond 45 to Open @ National Harbor

[ 0 ] January 19, 2010 |

Bond 45 is coming to the District, well not exactly. Shelly Fireman decided to move the city to the suburbs with this new restaurant. Bond 45 comes from the Fireman Hospitality Group, which includes New York restaurants Cafe Fiorello, Shelly’s Trattoria and Brooklyn Diner (*Funny, we must’ve passed this restaurant a million times and always wondered who ran this operation…). With an interior that will be designed by Tony-award Broadway set designer, John Lee Beatty, we are looking forward to something savvy with a dollop of trendy. The restaurant boasts a menu of “surf and turf” which will not be limited to your typical dried steak and seafood…but with menu items such as a crab steak (*this is a total first for us, please devirginize us…) and a choice of 28-day dry-aged prime or organic grass-fed choice, “surf and turf” might need a broader meaning here. To be quite honest, they had us sucked in with the Mozzarella and Burrata cheeses that will be prepared daily…Yum to fresh.

The Where: Bond 45, 149 Waterfront st., National Harbor, MD
