Bonefish Grill comes back to the Valley with a Bang Bang!
I had my first Bonefish Grill experience in September in Summerlin, Nevada. I had the opportunity to try a number of items on the menu and was never disappointed. The far and away favorite was most certainly the Bang Bang Shrimp, I couldn’t get enough. The sadness I felt in leaving Vegas was softened only by the knowledge that I would have the opportunity to have it again and again any time I wanted in January once we got our own Bonefish Grill in Scottsdale.
The location on Tatum across from Paradise Valley Mall, is in the building that used to house an Islands Burger, though upon walking through the trademark revolving door you would never be able to tell. The location was leveled and completely redesigned. The interior is dark, sexy, open and inviting. The dining room is very open and the bar area features a long community table that allows space for larger parties as well as ample opportunity to make new friends while enjoying their new IN + ON Bar Bites Menu, newly released at all Bonefish locations.
The IN + ON Bar Bites Menu feature exciting new items like On the Bun Dim Sum Style Sliders, On the Stack Tostadas, In the Bite Mac + Cheese Bites, On the Bone Lamb Lollipop Chops, In the Shooter Glass Oyster Shooters, On the Shell Oysters and the sweet and decadent In the Dough Doughnuts.
The On the Bun Dim Sum Sliders come served in individual bamboo steamers and your choice of either Chipotle Shrimp or BBQ Pork filling. The Chinese steamed buns were soft and moist and the pork that I had in mine was tender and tart creating a great appetizer, one that you’re not expecting from this chain heavy on seafood dishes.
If you’re looking for more of a traditional meal, treat yourself to a spot in the dining room and settle in for a relaxing and a menu full of selection sure to tempt the taste buds of any diner.
Obviously, the Bang Bang Shrimp is where everyone should start. There is something truly magical about this dish. Even though the shrimp is dressed in a creamy and spicy sauce, they still manage to maintain their crispness and crunch. It really is delightful and should not be missed. If you don’t want to order an appetizer you can get the Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos that will pack the same punch.
The Filet Mignon is wood-grilled and lightly seasoned to allow to true flavor of the meat to come through. You can choose from a white truffle butter, classic Béarnaise or a creamy mushroom & bacon sauce to top it all off. The Chilean Sea Bass is rich, buttery and almost melts in your mouth. The Ahi Tuna Steak, often referred to as the “filet of the sea”, is a Yellowfin tuna that is mild in flavor and rich in texture and color. The sea bass and tuna can be adorned with your choice of signature sauces specially crafted for the seafood dishes like Lime Tomato Garlic, Mango Salsa, Herb Pesto, Pan Asian Sauce or Lemon Butter.
Another exciting addition to this new location is Brunch. Meander in for an Endless Bubbles Brunch that includes your choice of Eggs Benedict (might I suggest the Bang Bang Shrimp Eggs Benedict?), Brunch Favorite or Omelet along with endless Bellinis, Mimosas or Blackberry Sangria. There are also a variety of other new and exciting dishes added to their Brunch menu.
With so many new dishes and the excitement of their return to the Valley, I am sure that this spot is going to continue to see the same success it has received since opening last month.
