Best of Boston

2013 Best Chef, General Excellence

Jason Bond, Bondir

Bond showcases New England’s bounty like no one else in town, dreaming up quirky-beautiful dishes that feature lesser-known flora, like calaminth, angelica root, and carrot-shaped Shunkyo radishes. And if Bond can blow us away working in a kitchen the size of a walk-in closet, we can’t wait to see what he’ll do when he opens the 2,800-square-foot outpost of Bondir in Concord—which will source items from his new Dracut farm plot—this fall.
