Fond is exactly what you want out of a neighborhood restaurant: it’s a little corner spot with big windows and sidewalk tables for when it’s nice out, it’s always full, but you never have to wait more than a few minutes to sit down (even if you don’t make a reservation), and the contemporary American menu changes all the time, but everything on it is great. If you’re trying to be a little less casual, they also have five and seven-course tasting menus, but we typically just come here for some oysters and drinks.
