We had been to Fishbone's one time before, at least four years ago. It was a delight to return. We were seated immediately on the outdoor deck. We had a lovely view of Lake Nagawicka. Despite our server seeming a little disoriented, we chocked it up to him possibly being new, and weren't we all new at something at one time! (I had asked about the Voodoo Fondue, and although our server provided most of the ingredients, he left out that it contained chorizo. That's a deal breaker for someone who enjoys the black beans base, but doesn't eat meat. My husband quelled my excitement when he noted the meat.) Fishbone's menu contains many inviting dishes; it was hard for my husband and me to decide on our entrees. He ended up ordering the Jumbalaya Ya-Ya.This was a generous serving of shrimp, sausage, chicken, crawfish, and ham, served in a tasty broth over rice. A roll completed his meal. I was thrilled with my entree: the Sauteed Grouper, which was expertly prepared and served over a 'sweet potato dirty rice,' spinach, and an Opelousas sauce. I only found one blackened oyster in my sauce, and after tasting it, wish there would have been a few more to enjoy. The dish as a whole, however, was delectable. As I was more than a bit hungry, I also enjoyed a side salad while we waited for our entrees. In addition to its lettuce, it included Parmesan cheese, two slices of tomato, two slices of cucumber, a couple of sliced mushrooms and a creamy raspberry vinaigrette. Interestingly, when I asked our server what the dressing choices were, he told me the side salad came only with the raspberry vinaigrette. My other choice was a Caesar side salad. Fishbone's is again on our list of places to re-visit in order to try several of the other interesting entrees on their menu.
