37. Mussels Josephine at Bonefish Grill
We here at Short Order aren't crazy about chain restaurants, but Bonefish Grill somehow manages to remain imaginative. Along with the Bang Bang Shrimp ($9), the Mussels Josephine ($12) is
one of Bonefish's more famous appetizers. Prince Edward mussels are
sauteed in a butter white wine reduction with tomatoes, garlic and
basil. The folks at Bonefish don't like to divulge much about the creamy
sauce, but we are pretty sure they coat the pan with Sambuca, a
licorice-flavored liqueur, to provide that signature taste.
The crisp cold waters, natural rock formations and inviting regulations
allow the fishermen off Prince Edward Island to farm up to 80
percent of the world's raised shellfish. Bonefish stocks many of its 158 locations
across 28 states from there.
Though both locations often feature relentlessly long lines, the West
Miami one tends to empty out a little earlier if you want to avoid the
crowds and don't mind eating late. If you're up in Broward, try Plantation, Wellington and Boca Raton.
