Jeff Pond

Executive Chef/Partner

As Jeff passes his decade mark on the Boston restaurant scene, he’s noticed a shift in his preferred style of cooking. While he once was intrigued by the delicate and complex world of fine dining, Jeff is now drawn to a simpler approach. He believes the best dining experiences are those that are the most relaxed – casual, high-quality ingredients presented in a true, simple way. Since opening Area Four Cambridge in 2011, Jeff has traveled the country, taste-testing regional varieties of pizzas to pull inspiration for his own perfect pie. With Area Four, Jeff brings the artisanal pizza experience to the forefront, showcasing his expertly honed pie-making skills, beloved 14-year old sourdough starter and commitment to delivering creative, bold flavors.
