Bondir Concord is the second installment of the Cambridge restaurant with which it shares a name. Chef-owner Jason Bond opened the first three years ago, and it was close to perfect.

The local, ever-changing dishes are often delicious, the staff welcoming, the decor a mix of antique and modern, this time with a whiff of olde New England. The warren-like space is outfitted with wood tables, benches with firewood stowed beneath, antique card catalogs and quilts, and an enormous, impressive jewel-toned painting of fowl. Yet somehow it doesn’t feel quite as magical. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
