Joanne Bondy just texted the news: “I’ve resigned from the Gaylord Marriott. My last day is Friday.” Despite the steak-centric menu, Bondy elevated the food at the gargantuan hotel restaurant. She showcased the bounties of local farmers to visitors from all over the planet.
Bondy is the talented chef who partnered with Monica Greene and gave us Ciudad. The restaurant closed in 2007 and Bondy headed to Grapevine. The loss of Ciudad was mourned by many.
Bondy is taking some time off to travel with her parents and visit with friends. She plans to return to Dallas in a couple of weeks. Could the rebirth of Ciudad be a possibility? Stranger things have happened.
