Yonkers, NY (February 19, 2013) – Yonkers’ dining scene now has a new hot spot in town as Bonefish Grill opened its doors last night in Westchester’s Ridge Hill at 1 Ridge Hill Blvd., across from Whole Foods. The grand opening follows a successful soft opening charity event which took place on Saturday, February 16, benefitting Habitat for Humanity of Westchester and helping the group to raise $7,500. Proceeds from the event will be used to support Habitat for Humanity of Westchester’s continued efforts to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness throughout Westchester County, and to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and public action.
The ZAGAT award-winning, polished casual restaurant brings its wood-grilled fish, seafood and chops, innovative sauces and indulgent desserts to the area’s top dining and shopping destination. Coupling great-tasting food with a welcoming bar that features an array of ‘bar-fresh’ cocktails, extensive craft beer selections, and an adventurous wine list, Bonefish Grill will excite and delight guests no matter what their mood.
“We are thrilled to open our doors and become an active member in the Ridge Hill and Yonkers community,” said Dennis Sarlo, managing partner of Bonefish Grill in Yonkers. “By partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Westchester we’ve taken an important step in building a foundation of goodwill and helping the community. We’re excited to show Yonkers what we do best, with knowledgeable and attentive chef’s coat service that brings fun, inviting dining and a big-city bar to the area.”
The “fresh fish experts” will tantalize taste buds with signature appetizers and handhelds including Bonefish Grill’s famous Ahi Tuna Sashimi, PEI Mussels Josephine and “American Style” Kobe Beef Burgers. Guests can choose simply-grilled fish with a choice of four signature sauces or truly indulge with market-fresh “Specials” which change daily to offer guests a variety of seasonal flavors and selections from around the world. Midweek is always cause for celebration at Bonefish Grill as every Wednesday is Bang Wednesday, where signature Bang Bang Shrimp – tender crispy shrimp tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce – are offered for just $5. And now on Sundays, Bonefish Grill will be serving a delectable brunch from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. featuring favorite breakfast dishes like omelets, French Toast served with freshly whipped cream, and chocolate croissants.
The restaurant also offers an evolving wine list, regional craft brews and inventive hand-crafted cocktails including the Ocean Trust Martini. For each Ocean Trust Martini sold, $1 is donated to Ocean Trust, an award-winning ocean conservation foundation.
