Bonded to Bond 45

This is actually my second pre-theatre meal at Bond 45, so I knew what to expect going in. As you walk in the door you walk past the fresh and colorful antipasto bar which gives you a preview to your dining experience. This antipasto bar is so tempting that last time I came I just ordered an antipasto platter as my main dish. I really wanted to go this route again, but decided to check out some of the other options on the menu this time.
The decor is very Old World and to me this is the classic New York restaurant setting. Our waiter, Cem, asked us what time our curtain was and was incredible about keeping our meal right on track the entire evening. This is one of the most important perks of dining in a great restaurant in the Theatre District in NYC, the entire staff understands how to set the pace so that you can sit back and relax without checking your watch every 5 minutes.

 The bread basket was so full of delicious and soft bread that we actually skipped the antipasto *gasp*. Whoopsie.

We let Cem help us select our wine, and it was so good that I also trusted his recommendation of the daily fish special. Again, he did not steer me wrong. Served with mushrooms and arugula atop a bed of lentils with tomato, corn, and red onions, this dish was hearty, flavorful, and delicious.

We finished our evening with enough time to enjoy a cappuccino with plenty of time to get to our theatre before curtain. This was a lovely meal and one of my pre-theatre favorites.
