    The duo of Chefs/Owners Lee Styer and Jessie Prawlucki are food magicans. We can't stop thinking about the Pork Belly and the impeccable wine list. Tthe Malted Milk Chocolate Ice Cream made us swoon.

    Probably my favorite restaurant in the city. For the price and product you couldn't ask for a better experience. Seared foie gras is a must! First time I've had pork belly and it was amazing.

    One of the best meals I've ever had. The seared foie gras is rich and decadent. The pork belly is divine. You'll be dreaming about it. Also, flawless service.

    With Fond’s new location comes a fully-stocked bar—though you’re still allowed to BYO on weekdays.

    During this cold snap, the otherwise lovely seats by the windows are unreasonably cold.
