Bondir, Jason Bond’s tiny, warm place in Cambridge, stands out for Bond’s regional, spiffed-up take on affordable French and Italian country cooking. Risotto may incorporate Scituate scallops and Berkshire ham one night, Woodbury clams another; roast duck might come with a New England white cornmeal cake. Bond’s bias for small producers and affordable drinks comes through clearly in his mostly French, Austrian and Italian wine list, boasting great buys from Bardolino rosés to Schloss Gobelsburg grüner veltliners and Chidaine chenin blancs.
