Housed within the elegant and historic former Federal Reserve Bank in the heart of Boston's Financial District, Bond Restaurant | Lounge evokes the opulence of bygone eras.

A premiere destination for cosmopolitan dining, cocktails and entertainment, Bond is a shimmering, hip setting for small plate dining options, distinctive cocktails and eclectic music. To complement the venue's international vibe, glitterati can enjoy a globally-inspired menu at dining tables or at more casual lounge seating.

As Executive Pastry Chef at the historic Langham Hotel in downtown Boston, Jed Hackney uses his respect for local produce and a commitment to flavor to create contemporary desserts and all of the baked goods for the hotel including BOND, Café Fleuri and Café Fleuri's famed Chocolate Bar.
Born in upstate New York near his grandmother's apple and cherry orchard and farm, Hackney grew up within the farm culture. His family's commitment to the farming community continued when they moved to Vermont. Inspired by amazing local produce and by his grandmother, Hackney began spending more and more time in the kitchen.
A graduate of New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Hackney's career has taken him from the kitchen to the classroom and back again. He was the Assistant Innkeeper at Killington, a Line Cook at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe and, more recently, instructor at his alma mater. He spent three years in the pastry department at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gutch in Colorado as both Chef de Partie and Executive Pastry Chef, where he trained under Executive Pastry Chef, Jonathan Saliba. Just prior to joining the Langham team, Hackney was the Pastry Chef at Harvest in Cambridge, focusing on contemporary New England cuisine.
As a pastry chef he prefers a simple and straightforward technique. "It really is all about the ingredients. Seasonality is the best part of living here in New England, so my menus will reflect the seasons, with frequent updates. Everything on the plate will be there for a reason; balance and flavor are key."
