Bonefish Grill has made some changes to their menu, and let me tell you, change is GOOD! Our local Bonefish Grill location had a group of area bloggers over last night to experience some of their new menu items (complimentary) and there are so many delicious dishes I want to share with you. Say hello to the new Bonefish Grill menu and stick around through the end of the post for a giveaway!
First of all, don’t worry… Bonefish Grill did not get rid of the Bang Bang Shrimp. Now that Bang Bang Shrimp lovers everywhere can breath easy, let me tell you about what’s new on the menu. With over 20 new items spanning every category from drinks to desserts, you’re going to have some difficult choices to make.
Let’s start with the appetizers. There are four new appetizers on the menu: Bang Bang Shrimp Flatbread, Twisted Edamame Hummus, NY Strip Tataki and Cold Snap Fresh Ceviche. They all sound amazing, but we ended up trying the NY Strip Tataki and the Cold Snap Fresh Ceviche. To die for! The NY Strip Tataki could easily be an entree. It was amazingly tender and flavorful, with just the right amount of seasonings. The Cold Snap Ceviche was fresh, crisp and served in an ice glass! It’s the perfect “light bite” to share.
There are two new salads on the menu at Bonefish Grill. First is a Cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad and the second is a Watermelon Salad. We tried the Watermelon Salad, along with the Classic Caesar and a Bonefish House Salad. For the Watermelon Salad, the peppery bite from the Arugula and the salty bite of the Feta couldn’t be a better pair for the juicy, sweet taste of ripe watermelon. There are no heavy dressings on this salad, so this is another menu item that won’t leave you feeling weighed down.
There’s only one new item on the “Handhelds” section of the menu, but it’s a showstopper. Are you ready for it? Lobster Grilled Cheese, and it’s served with Lobster Bisque! Of all the things we tried on the new menu at Bonefish Grill, I think I was most impressed with the Lobster Grilled Cheese. It was amazing and I’m not sure that there are any words I can use that will do it justice. Huge chucks of lobster in both the sandwich and the soup, a delicious buttery bread and the cheese… of the cheese! It was so good!
On the “Wood-Grilled” section of the menu, there are few new items to choose from. There’s the Ahi Tuna Steak, Ribeyes with a choice of amazing sauces (like Bearnaise), and a killer Kona Crusted Ribeye. We were lucky enough to try the Ribeye with Bearnaise sauce and the Kona Crusted Ribeye. They were both delicious, but that Kona Crusted Ribeye was melt-on-your-mouth delicious. It will be high on my list of “top picks” as far as Bonefish Grill entrees go.
Bonefish Grill has added a new selection of “Bowls” to the menu as well. With four varieties to choose from, it’s easy to find something to please everyone. Spicy Tuna, Seared NY Strip. Shrimp Pad Thai and Fire Roasted Vegetables cover quite a range in just four little (really, they’re pretty big) bowls. While I could have easily been convinced to try all four, we ended up only trying the Spicy Tuna Bowl. I am a huge tuna fan, so I was really excited for this particular dish. It did not disappoint. The tuna was perfect and the rice and avocado were the perfect accompaniment. The spicy mango sauce on the side was killer, in a good way! I think I could dip just about anything in that sauce.
We tried a few new things from the bar too… First, we sampled a delicious red blend by Charles & Charles. It was surprisingly light for a red, with no trace of bitterness at all. It would definitely be a great choice with any of the dishes at Bonefish Grill, but particularly the ribeyes. There are 4 new martinis on the menu as well: Cold Snap Cucumber Cosmo, Fresh Raspberry Martini, Fresh Pineapple Martini and Ocean Trust Tropic Heat Martini. I tried the Cold Snap Cucumber Cosmo, which was served in a super cool ice glass (how could I not order that?) and the Ocean Trust Tropic Heat Martini. Both were delicious, but the Ocean Trust Tropic Heat Martini was my favorite. Plus, Bonefish Grill donates $1 from the sale of each Ocean Trust Tropic Heat Martini to the Ocean Trust.
Saving the best for last? Maybe. If you’re a fan of desserts, Bonefish has added two that I think are pretty darn phenomenal. First, there’s the Banana Split Flatbread. It’s the lighter of the two new desserts, though certainly not lacking in flavor. It’s all the classic tastes you love from a banana split, layer on a crispy flatbread. If you’re looking for something a little sweeter, perhaps with some chocolate, then look no further than the S’mores Flatbread. As a huge fan of S’mores, I approve! With chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs, it would be hard to go wrong with this decadent dessert.
