Kicking off the first event of our “Chefs at Sea” series is Chef Jason Bond of Bondir Restaurant.
Menus are pre-released 72 hours prior to our cruises using the freshest ingredients in New England and can be found on our website. While no substitutions for presented food are available we will make every effort to accommodate the dietary needs of our guests whenever possible. Your $80 ticket is all-inclusive providing food, entertainment and the price of your cruise and tour. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available on a cash-bar basis. Food is presented in a tasting format and seating is open. Attire is casual and the duration of the cruise is 3 hours.
Menus at Bondir showcase the pastoral and marine bounty of our New England region and offer a finely curated selection of American and European wines and beers. Our offerings–vegetables picked the same day, fish hours out of the ocean, pasture-raised meats–will change daily, and will always be tasteful in preparation and presentation.
“Each homespun dish—hand-rolled tagliatelle with chicken; braised lamb shoulder—is available in either a half or a full portion, encouraging sharing. And then there’s the fireplace, appealing staff, and intimate setting that, yes, make it feel like you’re eating in grandma’s country house. And that’s a very good thing.”
— Andrew Knowlton, Bon Appétit Magazine
“Small and sweet and serious without the slightest gimmickry, as homey as it is vibrant.”
— John Mariani, Esquire Magazine
“With Bondir, Jason Bond joins the ranks of our top artisan chef-owners. His intimate restaurant deserves to be a place of pilgrimage for visiting and local foodies alike. …In its humble way, Bondir serves some of the most elegantly conceived and executed dishes in the area. Bond manages to avoid the overwrought pretension that runs through too much of the current farm-to-table approach.”
— Corby Kummer, Boston Magazine
