BondST celebrates 25 years with a glamorous bash at Hudson Yards

Happy birthday, BondST! The beloved restaurant by Jonathan Morr celebrated 25 years this week, marking the occasion with a star-studded party at its new Hudson Yards location. Beginning with a ceremonial “kagami biraki” sake barrel opening and a tuna cutting “show,” the night found guests mingled with Morr while dancing to beats by The Muses’ Jack James Busa and Daniel Walters. The occasion was complemented with an extensive sushi bar and BondST’s special tuna tarts, spicy crispy shrimp, miso chilean sea bass, and more, plus its signature lychee martinis, shishito jalapeño margaritas, and BondST sweet saketinis—served out of a custom ice sculpture from Okamoto Studios. Dessert and dancing closed out the evening as the sun went down, making a truly joyous anniversary.

The evening’s starry guest list included Michaela Coel, Graham Norton,  Alec and Hilaria Baldwin, Nicole Miller, Masaharu Morimoto, Riccardo Tisci, Adam Lippes, Carol Alt, Alex and Keytt Lundqvist, Garrett Neff, Spencer Hewett, Eddie Roche, Hunter Kohl, Cynthia Rowley, Rob Stringer, George Hahn, Joshua Bell, Oberon Sinclair, Brian Atwood, Mark Seliger, Julie Taymor, David Rabin, Jason Pomeranc, Fern Mallis, Bob Colacello, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, Sophie Sumner, Freya Drohan, Drew Nieporent, Candace Bushnell, Seth Herzog, Heather Thomson, Ashley Haas, Tyler Shamro, Ryan Cooper, Mariah Strongin, Michele Hicks, Pippa Cohen, Grace Hightower De Niro, Jihae Kim, Jason Carroll, and more. Big kudos to Lisa Raden and Greg Calejo who brought so many fab people together!
