The Dish: BONDST’s Big Eye Tuna Tarts

What: Big Eye Tuna Tarts with creamy ponzu, white truffle oil, and micro shiso. Where: BONDST, known around town for fresh fish, quality sushi and a unique take on traditional Japanese. Ideal meal: Date night with your arm candy or a quiet weeknight dinner in the subdued ambiance upstairs or in the subterranean lounge. Because: Truffle oil can be such a ‘cheap’ maneuver. In excess, it aims to conceal whatever’s missing from the recipe, but here, it supplements the citrus-based ponzu and adds a lasting bite to the micro shiso greens sprinkled on top. Tastes like: Fresh, thinly sliced tuna (a perfectly crisp carpaccio) atop a crunchy tart make a Japanese-inspired bite sized pizza. Enjoy with childish delight. Bottom line: $18 for two tarts as a starter. BONDST has never been accused of being affordable, but patrons know that the ‘bite’ to your wallet is worth every single one inside.
