Jason Bond, chef at Beacon Hill Bistro, plans to leave his current gig in September and open his own restaurant, reports the Boston Globe. Bond’s new spot, Bondir, will be located in the former Con Sol spot in Cambridge, with a modest 24 seats and a kitchen barely big enough for one.
Bondir’s menu will be similar to what Bond has been cooking at Beacon Hill Bistro, with a focus on local ingredients prepared with classical techniques. Entrees will cost around the mid-$20s, and in addition to a la carte dishes, there will be a variety of prix fixe or tasting menu options to choose from.
Beacon Hill Bistro fans have nothing to worry about, though. Mathew Molloy, chef de cuisine at Lumiere, will be taking over Bond’s spot in the kitchen.
