Overview: Bond 45

Initial Thoughts:
Food:  Delicious Italian Cuisine
Drinks:  Nice wines, Prosecco and Limoncello
Price:  Standard Steakhouse Prices

When you're in the mood to get out of the city, try heading over to National Harbor.  Bond 45 offers a friendly environment to enjoy good steak and Italian cuisine.  The National Harbor's Christmas Tree shined bright with the colored lights.  We took a brief tour of the restaurant and met some fellow food bloggers in a private dining room.  We were greeted with Prosecco, warm olives and popovers.  Next, we tried many varieties of prosciutto and mozzarella.  My favorite was the Burrata because of the creamy deliciousness.  Bond 45 actually makes it in-house.  The Fravoli is amazing.  Who doesn't enjoy fried artichokes?  So good!

The 101 Layer Lasagna was one of my favorite dishes.  Layer upon layer of homemade pasta just melts in your mouth.  We enjoyed the "Guitar pasta" with jumbo lump crab meat and shrimp consisting of a homemade spaghetti with a sea urchin butter sauce.  The crab steak is an interesting take on a crab cake.  Essentially it is an entire steak of crab.  The sea scallops piccata were perfectly seared and moist.  We also tried the veal chop parmigiana, fried rabbit and prime New York strip.  The meat is flavorful, tender and tasty.  

We tried many desserts and Limoncello.  My favorite was the tiramisu, but I also liked the Panettone and chocolate mousse.

You pretty much can't go wrong at Bond 45.  Stop in and give it a try.
