Bonefish Grill is a seafood restaurant in Tustin. If you’ve not been to Bonefishes in other states, you shouldn’t expect a fast-casual the likes of another California Fish Grill copycat. Bonefish is a real sit-down restaurant with LED-votive candles, a revolving door and a tall honeycomb wine bottle rack that separates the dining room from a bustling bar area. Despite the butcher paper-covered tables, anticipate price points on par with King’s Fish House, its closest competitor. The most expensive item is the wood-grilled $30 Chilean sea bass that cuts with a fork and eats like a gigantic scallop, its pristine white fibers running up and down. To taste what you paid for, opt for the lemon butter emulsion and no other sauce. Its signature appetizer is the Bang Bang Shrimp: battered, fried, then shellacked in a “creamy, spicy sauce.” The dish is to Bonefish Grill what the Bloomin’ Onion is to Outback Steakhouse—the proverbial first hit of the crack pipe. And what red-blooded American can resist appetizers so fried, so addictive, so loaded with calories?
