What to order at Bond St?
I have a $100 gift card to Bond St that my husband and I are planning to use for dinner this Friday night to celebrate his birthday. We both love sushi (we are definitely not connoiseurs, but we do enjoy it), and my husband likes beef, although we probably would not have chosen Bond St ourselves due to its reputation for being overpriced and snooty. That said, we are looking forward to our night out. I would appreciate any suggestions as to what is a 'must try' on the menu. We probably don't want to go too far beyond the $100, so expensive bottles of sake are definitely out. Thank you in advance!
I used to go to Bond Street a lot as my friend worked in the lounge downstairs. I haven't been there in a while, but I was particularly fond of the Sea Bass skewers. They're more of a appetizer sized dish, but honestly I can't explain how good they are. Give them a try when you're there.
I understand your view of Bond St. My last dining experience upstairs for my father's birthday was a complete & utter disaster & I have not been back since. The food was great, but the service ruined the entire meal. I hope things go better for you. Enjoy!
$100 is not going to get you too far at Bond Street. The food is really good and although they have a GREAT spicy tuna roll, I would go for some of the cooked appetizers and main courses. Miso glazed cod is a must. Ask the waiter as to what they suggest and they can put a bunch of suhi together if you tell them a price range. Enjoy your night...I have been there so many times and going back this Sunday. You can also sit at the sushi bar in the back and order as you go along...a fun option.
I would suggest going with the cooked food. The Sushi is OK but very expensive. The cooked for will be more satisfying. I too have had service issues.
