Dining in style Jun 20, 2016
Although our first peek inside suggested somebody had set up shop within an evacuated industrial space (windows at ground level of a sterile, concrete structure), Bronda quickly echoed a hip vibe that lured us onward. Stepping inside sealed our destiny: a large space, crammed with customers, artful decoration and confidently striding wait staff. Being a Monday evening, the crowd spoke loudest this was clearly a culinary destination.

Bronda’s appeal unfortunately forced us to sit and order dinner in the bar (reservations not required, but strongly suggested from our experience), but that was a small price to pay for the fare to follow. The menu will make your mouth water, and Laura and I began with a slice margherita pizza. This appetizer was priced at 4€, so we knew it would be a small slice, but the taste was HUGE. Our parade of flavor continued by sampling some soft tacos with crispy fish, a sumptuous combination of fried flounder, avocado and jalapeno in a chipotle dressing. To underscore how terrific service was, I know the ingredients because our server reeled off the list (and even preparation techniques) while presenting each dish. And this was for appetizers in bar seating!

Anticipation was high for the entrée, and there was no disappointment. My Roasted Salmon Basque was remarkably seasoned with red pepper vinaigrette, olive oil and toasted almonds. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. It is rare that I am floored on every front, but Bronda earned five stars no matter how you tried to appraise them. One of the few regrets of this trip was being unable to return here for another meal!

I like that idea, Sima. I could bill it as the "kinda fonda Bronda" reunion...
