Derek, who said…Does the Ocean Trust Martini count as a dish? I could definately make a meal out of those. Otherwise I’d say my favorite are the bang bang tacos.

Congratulations Derek.  I know you are going to love your meal at Bonefish, whether you remember it after your Martini or not. 😉

Peter and I finally made our way to the Bonefish Grill in Brick Township on Monday.  It was my first time back since my birthday two years ago.    After reading all the comments from everyone on the Giveaway post, I had to try the Bang Bang Shrimp and the Chilean Sea Bass.  If you like spicy, the Bang bang-bangBang Shrimp is fantastic.  I loved that they served them with chopsticks; the perfect vehicle for popping those crunch, spicy bites right in your mouth. The Seabass was cooked to perfection.  It was served with a summer succotash which included corn and edamame and a side of jasmine rice.  The bartender gave me a taste of all the different sauces you can choose to accompany your fish.  My favorite was the chimichurri sauce but if you like a sweeter sauce the Mango was excellent also.

I got a chance to speak with the Manager who told me that they get fresh fish in daily and it is the reason they are not open for lunch.  They spend all day preparing the fish for dinner.  I was very impressed with my meal and the service.  The bartenders were knowledgeable not only about our wine choices, which were excellent, but also about our menu choices and how the dishes were prepared.  You could tell the staff, at least those we spoke with, take great pride in the product they put out.  Jersey Bites will definitely be back. Next time, I’m having the Ocean Trust Martini.

Stay tuned for this week’s Win It Wednesday.   We’re giving away a Hamilton Beach Thermal Cooler Blender.  So cool, you can blend your drinks right in the cooler, pop it off and head to the pool. (That is if it ever gets above 70 degrees this summer.) Check back later for your chance to enter.
