Naughty Gossip’s Favorite New Restaurant – BOND 45! YUMMY
Bond 45, a New York Italian Kitchen & Bar was originally located on 45th street in the former historic Bond Clothing Store (1948-1977), is now open in its new home on 46th street.

The centerpiece of Shelly Fireman’s relocated theater district restaurant is the appetite-whetting cornucopia of antipasto platters arranged around the bar, just steps from the entrance. Beyond this are booths and tables. There’s a lower-level dining room as well, done in deep coppery tones and lit with Edison bulbs. “We’re more in the heart of the theater district in the new location,” Mr. Fireman said of the two-block move. It’s surrounded by theaters, including the Richard Rodgers. The menu, by the executive chef Brando De Oliveira, is as vast as the restaurant, which seats 268. All-day breakfast items, like gooey cheese omelets, beckon, as do salads big and small, more than a dozen antipasto choices, pastas, pizzas, burgers, chicken, fish and Italian specialties like veal Milanese. And there are overflowing family-style servings of Caesar salad, chicken wings Calabrese and manicotti, each enough for three to five people: 221 West 46th Street, 212-869-4545, bond45ny.com
