Bon Me joins the Head Of The Charles® Regatta as Partner for Evening by the Charles

May 19, 2016 – Today, the Head Of The Charles® Regatta (HOCR), announced announced Bon Me, a Boston based restaurant and food truck company, will be a partner for the second annual Evening by the Charles.

Bon Me first launched as a food truck in 2011 after owners, Patrick Lynch and Alison Fong, won The City of Boston’s Food Truck Challenge in 2010. The duo’s creative concept of bringing the bold, fresh flavors of Asian cuisine to Boston quickly captivated audiences everywhere — first through food trucks and then in brick and mortar restaurants in Boston, Cambridge and now Chestnut Hill.

Bon Me is dedicated to producing as many of its products from scratch as possible using the freshest ingredients for its unique interpretation of the classic Vietnamese banh mi sandwich.  The company strives to accommodate all customers by providing numerous vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free versions of its bold, fresh, and fun cuisine.

Bon Me will be selling food & refreshments at Evening by the Charles, the Head Of The Charles Saturday night event at the Attager Row.  Tickets for Evening bythe Charles will be available for purchase in late summer early autumn.  Information and updates about the event and ticket purchase can be found at
