*Disclosure: We received a giftcard to try the new menu to facilitate this post. Thoughts and opinions are 100% our own.
Bonefish Grill is my favorite restaurant, so when we were recently invited to try their brand new Fire + Ice Pre-Fixe Menu I was ecstatic. We’ve never had a bad experience, so I knew that we were sure to love the new menu just as much. The great thing about the new Pre-Fixe menu is that it sets you up with three delicious courses – salad, meal, and a dessert – taking the guess work out of deciding for you. The best part is that the menu starts at just $19.90 for all three courses.
Even though it’s not on the new menu, we had to start with the Bang Bang Shrimp. It’s so amazing and one of the best things about Bonefish Grill.
It’s hilarious to watch Skibbles growing up and trying new things. While this isn’t her first time trying the Bang Bang Shrimp, she must have either been starving, or it finally hit her how amazing it really is, because she literally ate 3/4 of the appetizer by herself. We loved watching her try to learn to use the chopsticks too. She ended up putting one of them down and just poking the shrimp with one end, but hey – it’s a start to her culinary adventures.
Andrew also started with the Signature Red Sangria that we tried during the last menu update. It’s a must for him every time we go there now. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t get to try any or any of the new Fire + Ice drink menu since I’m currently pregnant. I really think the Wild Orchid Hawaiian Martini sounded fabulous. It was Cruzan Guava rum, pineapple juice, coconut water, with flavors of pear and coconut and garnished with a real floating orchid. Yum!
For dinner, I went with the Oscar Turbot Pre-fixe dinner. It’s a turbot fish (a sister fish of the halibut according to our waitress) that is sautéed piccata style, then topped with jumbo lump crab meat and asparagus and served with mushroom ravioli and spring vegetables. I decided to sub my spring vegetables (spring peas and roasted peppers) for broccoli instead. My fish was cooked to perfect and was light and airy and went perfectly with the crab on top.
Andrew’s went with the new Grilled Arctic Char. This new one doesn’t include the 3 courses, but you are welcome to add the additional courses if you wish. The Char is a relative of salmon, and Andrew said it tasted even better than salmon with a clean, buttery taste. It’s seasoned and grilled and served alongside pappardelle pasta and fresh spring vegetables.
Finally, my pre-fixe menu concluded with the dessert which are brand new DIY doughnuts. They are a croissant-like doughnut hole tossed in a cinnamon sugar and served alongside fresh whipped cream, sea salt caramel, and chocolate sauce for dipping. If you know me, you know I have a slight obsession with doughnuts, and it takes a lot to impress my doughnut palette. These doughnut holes were SPOT ON. They are light and flaky and the dipping sauces were divinely perfect with them. I would easily ordered an entire plate of these to go.
Once again we fell in love with the new additions to Bonefish’s menu and love the ability to have three courses set up for us. Some of the other new additions to the Fire + Ice Pre-Fixe menu are:
- Cold Water Lobster Tail — Steamed and seasoned, served with warm drawn butter, crispy smashed Yukon Gold potatoes and spring sugar Snap peas.
- Dynamite Opah — Nicknamed “moonfish,” Opah is a great fish for the grill with a firm steak-like texture. It’s topped with lump Crab meat, sautéed spinach, and finished with a creamy aioli.
- Shrimp + Scallop Firepot — Jumbo shrimps and scallops finished firepot style, served with rustic cut vegetables and Yukon gold potatoes. Finished with spring sugar snap peas.
- Grilled Lamb Chops — Seasoned and lightly caramelized, served with crispy Yukon gold potatoes.
