For being a chain restaurant attached to the somehow still poppin’ KOP mall, Bonefish Grill sure knows just how to handle fish right. Waiters and waitresses in chef’s jackets and upscale decor are the tell tail (see what I did there) signs that you might have a totally tubular dining experience.
The wood-grilled fresh fish experts at Bonefish Grill are springing into the season of sunshine (we hope) and lollipops with the recent launch of a new spring and summer menu. Featuring fishy delights like fresh, hand-cut Norwegian Salmon with choice of Jim Beam Bacon Butter Jam or Fresh Tomato Salsa and Rockefeller Cobia which is moist, sweet fish, wood-grilled and topped with sharp, creamy spinach and lump crab, we had to go taste test.
Also worth peaking our fins above Philly is Kate’s Wild North Atlantic Haddock — mildly sweet white fish, garlic crumb dusted, wood-grilled and topped with feta, artichokes and lemon basil butter sauce. Of course let’s now forget the booze. Oh, sweet handcrafted cocktails… like the 150-calorie Fresh Grapefruit Martini keeping lips puckered and waists trim or the popular Wild Orchid Hawaiian Martini, featuring Cruzan Guava rum, pineapple juice, ZICO coconut water and the island flavors of desert pear and coconut, smartly garnished in true Hawaiian-style with a floating orchid.
Fortunately for you, there are Bonefish Grill’s all over the Philly suburbs and easy to find in the directory. Or get your fish on and then walk it off while you exercise… err, shop in the mall. (It counts, trust us!)
