OPEN AT 5463 GATEWAY VILLAGE CIRCLE (NEAR MCO) 4PM TODAY
ORLANDO, Fla. – (April 26, 2010) – Bonefish Grill brings its big fish flavor to Orlando as it opens its doors for business today, April 26 at 5463 Gateway Village Circle (On the corner of Semoran Boulevard and North Frontage Road near the Orlando International Airport). The polished-casual seafood restaurant appeals to those who crave high quality cuisine at a good value in a comfortable, lively atmosphere.
Founded in St. Petersburg, Fla. (January 2000), by veteran restaurateurs Tim Curci and Chris Parker, the Bonefish Grill dining experience originated upon the premise of simplicity and consistency and a commitment to excellence at every level within the restaurant – food, service, décor and value.
Bonefish Grill specializes in market-fresh fish prepared to order over an oak-burning grill, which gives the fish a savory, even cook. A tantalizing array of signature sauces, ranging from fresh and light to rich and flavorful, are offered to enhance the flavor of the fish.
Recognized as the “Fresh Fish Experts,” the restaurant offers a variety of species from which to choose on any given day. The fish is flown in fresh, inspected for quality and hand-cut daily.
“The key component to our culture is in how the fish is handled,” says Curci. “Our passion for its provenance and preparation is behind our commitment to provide our guests with seafood that is as fresh as fresh can be. We like to say that we take the mystery out of fish – we tell our guests where it came from, how best to eat it and how to have fun with sauces.”
Bonefish Grill is known for its menu offerings creatively prepared using flavorful, modern culinary ingredients, such as hearts of palm, artichokes, goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes. There’s something for everyone on the menu, which features a selection of fine hand-cut steaks and pork chops, as well as pasta and chicken dishes, in addition to the fresh fish. All entrées are accompanied by hot crusty bread and a choice of rice, seasonal vegetables or a potato selection. Lauded for its generous portions, the restaurant also features an assortment of daily specials and tasty appetizers, including Mussels Josephine, Cajun Chicken Egg Roll and the “house specialty,” Bang Bang Shrimp.
The 4,535-square-foot Orlando restaurant features a spacious dining room with an open kitchen and a large, energetic bar area that includes two community tables. The interior’s sleek design features beautiful golden hardwood and hand-blown glass amber lamps throughout the restaurant. An attractive array of three-dimensional art, ranging from large-scale metal sculptures of mangroves and fishing scenes to a large mystical fish rubbing, enhance the ambience felt throughout the restaurant.
As guests settle into their comfortable surroundings, they will be treated to a level of hospitality that incorporates friendliness and attentiveness as directed by Managing Partner Sharon Fulmer. Dressed in chef whites, the servers’ attention to detail is a direct result of a customized training program that is totally oriented to customer satisfaction.
“We are thrilled to have brought Bonefish Grill to this area of Orlando,” says Fulmer. “We are committed to providing our guests an enjoyable dining experience that excels in offering consistently good food within a comfortable and stylish setting, and impeccable service – all at an affordable price.”
