Bonefish Grill opened its first Metairie location this week at 4848 Veterans Memorial Blvd. (just West of Clearview Mall). In anticipation of the grand opening and to demonstrate community support, Bonefish Grill held an Opening Charity Night on Saturday, March 24 to raise funds for the JPAS.   Attendees enjoyed fresh seafood, refreshing cocktails, and spectacular ambiance and music— all for a great cause—raising more than $6,000 for the Jefferson Performing Arts Society.

“We are thrilled to open our doors today and become part of the Metairie community,” says Steven Laborde, managing partner of Bonefish Grill in Metairie. “We’re looking forward to providing locals with the Bonefish Grill experience—from fresh fish and innovative dishes to warm hospitality and inviting atmosphere—our goal is to ensure an exceptional dining experience from start to finish.”

Dinner is served seven days a week:  from 4 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 4 p.m. – 11:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday, and from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m., Sunday.  While reservations are not required, they are available by calling (504) 780-9964.  An ample number of seats are available nightly for walk-ups.
