|Mint Thai Tea|
On a whim, Greg, Jill (my coworkers) and I decided to give Bonefish Grill a try for lunch. The restaurant had only been open a couple of days before our visit. We were promptly seated and our waitress who was also training another girl greeted us right away. She asked us if we were in a rush or had some time to enjoy lunch. I thought this was a great question because we did need to be back at the office before 1 o clock. After replying to her, she recommended us drinks and described the Thai tea like "Christmas in your mouth." How could I say no that that? The Thai ice tea had a hint of mint flavor that was different than what is served at a Thai restaurant.
Before visiting, I glanced at the menu beforehand. I really wanted to try the Singapore calamari on the main menu. The lunch menu was limited and it was not offered. I tried to see if it was available upon request but the waitress came back and said the kitchen couldn't do it and suggested the bang bang shrimp instead. The recommendation was well received as the appetizer was delicious. The shrimp was crispy and the creamy sauce has just the perfect hint of spice.

I thought it was cool that our waitress offered us chopsticks to use for appetizer. She also had a tablet in her hand to take our order which expedited the process.
I got the lunch combo special which included a soup or salad and two tacos for $8.90. I was surprised that I was able to get clam chowder at no additional cost. Most restaurants have a small up charge for stew, chili or chowder in lieu of soup. The chowder was pleasantly different than the chowders that I am used to with the thick heavy cream base. Their chowder had a hint of green and wasn't as milky as the standard chowders.

The Mo and I will definitely be back and give their dinner menu a try.
