From the cheesy biscuits at Red Lobster to the amazing sauces at Buffalo Wild Wings, it's always tempting to go out for a delicious treat at one of the numerous chain and franchise restaurants dotting the landscape. But eating out at restaurants all the time can be a costly proposition. Not to mention the fact that, at restaurants, you have no portion control, and can't alter the recipes, ingredients or style of cooking to suit your own taste.
Bonefish Grill was founded in 2000 in St. Petersburg, FL, and now boasts over 150 franchises in 28 US states. The restaurant is known for featuring rare fish on its dishes, usually at least eight a day. Menu favorites include the "Bang Bang Shrimp" and the "Pomegranate Martini," which is served with frozen grapes.
