With the rainy month of July behind us we’re hoping August will bring sunshine and beautiful days. In the mean time, we have something that will brighten your day (and delight your palate too!)

The Space Coast’s favorite seafood restaurant, Bonefish Grill, has introduced a new menu that will satisfy both surf and turf lovers with innovative and unique new appetizers and bowls including Spicy Ahi Tuna and NY Strip Tataki, Steaks and Chops, and deluxe sides that offer up twists on the tried and true. Did we mention we have the recipe to the Spicy Ahi Tuna Bowl?

Bonefish’s iconic appetizer, Bang Bang Shrimp, will share the spotlight with Bang Bang Shrimp Flatbread and a new starter – Cold Snap Fresh Ceviche. This chilled seafood trio is served in frozen glasses made entirely of ice (seen in photo above.)

And joining the new tasty dishes are handcrafted cocktails including the Fresh Pineapple Martini and the Cold Snap Cucumber Cosmo. After a hot and humid day, those sure do sound refreshing!
