A few weeks ago, I took a girlfriend for a little mom’s night out to try out the new menu at Bonefish Grill – – and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! It’s been a while since I’ve been to Bonefish, so the menu in general was all new to me, but their new Hooked on Tuesday, 3-Course Menu {starting at $14.90} is something to get “hooked” on, really!   The new 3-course menu definitely sets itself apart from all of the other restaurant’s with something similar offering favorites like lobster tail,...
