Party Earth BONDST Review

The Scene

BONDST in New York's NoHo is a swanky & trendy sushi restaurant/lounge with great food & a sexy crowd. Come swim in the NYC soy with Party Earth.

Upscale lounge junkies collide with sushi aficionados at BONDST, a NoHo hotspot where the fusion menu looks as good as it tastes and the only thing prettier than the patrons are the waitresses.

Vintage lace-backed windowpanes and a simple awning out front keep passersby in the dark about the elaborate interior, where dapper diners step up into an intimate – but always packed – bi-level dining room.

Among the velvet drapes and expansive mirrors that adorn the walls, model-esque servers transport fine sake from the first floor sushi bar past a sprawling cherry blossom tree before delivering the pricey libations to the laudatory crowd.

The larger second floor dining room is lined with leather banquettes and candlelit mahogany tables, all tightly spaced so glitzy couples can cozy up over standout favorites like the big-eye tuna tarts or the Chilean sea bass.

Amped up socialites more interested in mingling leave the ambient jazz in the dining area and take a quick elevator down to the lounge, where livelier pop and house provides a soundtrack for the stylish singles clustered around the second sushi bar and the local film, music, and fashion insiders huddled up at the low tables.

No matter the mood or plan – a first date, a girls’ night out, or just an excuse to splurge – there’s a good chance BONDST can accommodate its never-ending line of trendy regulars.

At least the ones smart enough to make a reservation.

Tip from Adriana:

The middle of the lounge often becomes an impromptu dance space later in the evening. Buy a round for the amazing sushi chefs and they just might join in the fun.

  • Crowd

    Stylish singles, good-looking media types, moneyed East Village locals, dapper couples, and festive groups of sushi-seeking young professionals, mid-20s to 40s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient jazz and other mellow tunes in the dining areas, livelier pop and house in the lounge.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Full Japanese fusion menu with rolls, tempura, sashimi, and larger entrées like sake braised short ribs, lamb with Asian pear, and pan seared Hokkaido scallops. Dining area can be rented for private events. Reservations strongly suggested.

    Appetizers $9–$32, soups/salads $6–$21, sushi $8+/piece, entrées $24–$32. Beer $6–$11, wine $11–$16/glass or $44–$475/bottle, cocktails $12–$14, sake/sochu $9–$28/glass or $48–$315/bottle.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Upscale casual to dressy: fitted T-shirts, suits, designer jeans, minis, sexy dresses, heels. Can trend more casual in the lounge.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday through Saturday nights are mobbed without fail, but any night at BONDST promises the chance to mingle with a large and invariably sexy crowd.

  • Close By

    The swank Temple Bar (332 Lafayette Street) right around the corner offers first-rate cocktails.

Excellent Food and Drink
Mark S. Dec 12, 2012
Bond St is nestled on a cobblestone street with not many other venues on the block. the decor is bright and pleasant, the space is not very big, but the seating is not too cramped. I came here once and ate exclusively sushi, with a couple of drinks on the side. It was delicious, although not the best sushi in town. The drinks were very well made, I enjoyed each one. Another time I came I ate exclusively non raw food, and it was still great. Had a fillet of some fish, I forgot which, but it was cooked perfectly. This place is certainly not cheap, so be ready to pay for the good food.
Amazing fusion!
Risa C. Dec 7, 2012
Such good food! I've been here a couple times with friends and have yet to find anything that I didn't like. To begin with the cocktails are delicious and if you're sitting at the bar people watching there's no shortage of gorgeous patrons to check out. The food is also amazing, even stuff that I typically hate for being "sell out" Japanese food like tempura and spicy tuna over crispy rice are amazing and left me wanting to go back for more. I have yet to check out the lounge, but even coming for the food alone is totally worth it. Oh, and you absolutely have to try the tuna tarts, you will be seriously missing out if you don't.
Best sushi
Cera C. Dec 1, 2012
The yummiest sushi around, probably in the best location as well. Different levels convey a more lounge-y feel and one that is more on the restaurant side. The ambiance is dark, sleek, and trendy, which perfectly compliments its upscale clientele. The food is amazing but comes at a higher price so be warned...
Cool spot for dinner and drinks
Sam A. Sep 6, 2012
BondSt is always solid. I have eaten and partied here a number of times and it is consistently really good. BondSt is a trendy setting --- sleek and dark ---- with a trendy crowd. You should expect good-looking people that are dressed in designer gear. The food is great. I recommend the sea bass but all of the sushi is good as well. The lounge picks up later in the evening. The downstairs area has a very cool vibe --- great for a date or just to hang out with some friends. Expect to pay for the quality though --- it is certainly not cheap at BondSt.
