The Fresh Fish Experts Bring Innovative Recipes and New Brunch Options to Albany 



ALBANY, NY  – Albany’s dining scene now has a new hot spot in town. Bonefish Grill opened its doors on Monday at the restaurant’s newest location at 59 Wolf Road in Albany, N.Y. The grand opening follows a charity event which took place on Saturday, October 5, benefitting Habitat for Humanity and helping the group to raise $7,841. Proceeds from the event will support Habitat for Humanity as they work to build simple, decent and affordable homes for lower-income families in need in the Capital District.
“This weekend’s event with Habitat for Humanity was the perfect way to kick-off our opening in the Albany community,” said Bob Hillman, Managing Partner of Bonefish Grill Albany. “We look forward to many more opportunities to help support the Capital District and to welcoming the community to the restaurant to show them what we do best: attentive chef’s coat service that brings fun, inviting dining and a big-city bar to the area.”
The 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.
The “fresh fish experts” will tantalize taste buds with signature appetizers and handhelds including Bonefish Grill’s famous Bang Bang Shrimp, 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 to offer guests a variety of seasonal flavors and selections from around the world. Happy Hour drink and food specials run Sunday – Thursday from 4 – 6:30 p.m.
Albany will serve Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., when diners can decide between the beloved Traditional Eggs Benedict and other new menu additions including Surf and Turf Eggs Benedict, Huevos Benedictos with crispy corn tortillas and chorizo, and Spinach and Mushroom Eggs Benedict. Other new dishes include the “American Style” Kobe Beef and Egg Burger as well as the Cajun Shrimp Omelet, Garden Fresh Omelet, and Organic Whole Grain Oatmeal. For health-conscious guests, all omelets can be prepared with egg white substitute upon request.
The restaurant is open for dinner seven nights a week:  Monday through Thursday, from 4 – 10:30 p.m., 4 – 11:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Sunday.
