I had the opportunity to join some of the other mom’s in our playgroup for a mommy night out. It’s rare to get a chance to get out of the house without a kid in tow so I loved every moment getting to talk to other adults without being interrupted. We haven’t been to Bonefish Grill in a while, but one of the things I love about this place is that they change their menu with the seasons. My only complaint is that if you go in the evening the lighting is turned down really low.
I started out with their seasonal Pear Martini $8.50 (Freshly muddled pears, Absolut Pear vodka, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur + fresh lemon juice. Garnished with an edible flower). I really enjoyed it, but it was a little sweeter than I expected, so I think one is good.
Luckily the ladies where kind enough to let me snap a quick picture of their meals before we dug in.
I ordered the seasonal Atlantic Salmon with Bacon Jam Butter $17.70 sm or you can order the larger size for $20.30 (wood-grilled, served with choice of fresh side item). My smaller portion was just right for me, I just wished they had a little more Bacon Jam on top. I also didn’t care for my pile of spaghetti squash, mainly because instead of the spaghetti part I also had a huge chunk of the meaty flesh part that wasn’t cooked all the way.
Cold Snap Fresh Ceviche (served in a frozen glass made entirely of ice. Chilled bay scallops, shrimp, fresh fish, vegetables, avocado, cucumber, jalapeño, citrus, cilantro + warm tortilla chips). The dish looks just as it was advertised and seemed to go over well.
Shrimp Pad Thai (rice noodles, green onions, peanuts, egg + traditional Pad Thai sauce) I heard this was a good dish, except they must have added way too much soy sauce to the dish leaving you to chug an extra glass of water.
Sea Scallops & Shrimp (The most widely available of Scallops, the Sea Scallop also has the boldest of flavor. Stemming from the Gulf of Mexico, this Shrimp is sweet and meaty.) I didn’t hear any complaints on this dish. My friend has to have Gluten Free dishes and this place really has a lot of options for her to have.
I love this place and if you sign up for their email list, they have great specials and alert you when they have new seasonal dishes and cocktails. It’s a fantastic place for happy hour to try some of their appetizers and drinks. Can’t wait to get back here soon.
