Bonefish Grill Unveils New Menu With Mario Lopez, Real Housewives, and Spicy Tuna Bowls
The countdown is on. Though Florida's own Bonefish Grill will debut its new menu July 29, this past Saturday, Short Order was invited on a boat with a bunch of Bravo-lebrities and Mario Lopez to taste-test new menu items.

The new menu has a handful of new items sprinkled into every section, with the introduction of some new categories including bowls, deluxe sides, and dessert flatbread. Some highlights are the wild orchid Hawaiian and fresh pineapple martini, the spicy tuna bowl, the porcini mushroom ravioli, and the s'mores flatbread.

The Real Housewife of New York's LuAnn de Lesseps and onetime cast member of The Real Housewives of Miami Karent Sierra were all smiles. The statuesque Countess LuAnn commented that she would be a shrimp if she were an appetizer. The famed Bang Bang shrimp at Bonefish better look out.

The fresh pineapple martini, which combines Malibu rum, St-Germain, lemon, and homemade vanilla syrup, paired beautifully with the Miami weather. The Hawaiian martini featured Cruzan guava rum, coconut water and comes garnished with an edible orchid. In case you were wondering, the orchid tasted a bit like an underripe nectarine. Overall, a favorite drink. For a less fruity and more savory cocktail, they have a Patrón perfect cucumber margarita with a salt-and-pepper rim for something different.
A favorite of the new starters was the NY strip tataki, which has seared, thinly sliced, and served with Thai peppers and a mustard soy sauce.
