We needed somewhere to go for a work luncheon. Being that I cannot abide by going to Texas Roadhouse 1 more time on the premise that it is "fine dining", I chose Bonefish Grill. I love seafood and thought it would be a good change.
It has a very upscale look to it with dark hardwood interiors, white table cloths and the staff are all outfitted with either white chef coats or white oxford shirts and the long aprons. It still felt casual enough for our work lunch.
I decided on the Snake River Trout ($14) below. I found from a native Idahoan in our group that Snake River is in Idaho. That bodes well for me since I do not eat Canadian seafood. I was impressed by their menu. All of the seafood has an option of a sauce. I chose the simple lemon butter sauce.
While waiting on your order you get some foccacia bread and oil with pesto. You could not cut that bread with a damn light saber! I just gave up. I don't need to lacerate my mouth for the joy of a bready start. NO thanks.
My fish arrived piping hot and I was impressed by its size. It was obviously a whole fish and was well over a foot in length. I chose the potatoes au gratin which were delicious. They were prepared in more of a chopped potato instead of a slice. Well worth it as a side. Their "house" side of the day was chickpeas, salsa and spinach. It wasn't memorable at all.
I love to eat fish and anytime I can go somewhere and not be relegated to order salmon I'm happy. Salmon can be so sad sometimes. They always forget your salmon, they forget your sauce or whatever. They put all their thoughts into the meat eater's plates. I was impressed by their selection and will definitely go back.
