Bonefish Harry’s | Beverly, MA

“As a comforter philosophy cannot compete with a good dinner”. | Mason Cooley

This quote couldn’t ring anymore true in my life than it does right now. Mostly because I am taking a Philosophy class that has my head in the clouds but also because I really enjoy a good dinner. One in which every detail is through out, flavors are on point & drinks keep flowing. One in which loud conversation and laughter are at the center and people are just having a good time. I was invited to the first ever Tiki Dinner at Bonefish Harry’s, a lively establishment in Beverly, MA by one of my blogger friends who recently opened the restaurant along with her husband. I left with my belly full and heart happy and honestly, what better feeling is there?

Bonefish Harry’s had lots of nooks and crannies with the decor making me nostalgic for those beachy, summer days when I was a kid. With fun signage, bright colors and energetic wait staff I was all about this place. So lets get to what this Tiki Dinner was about. It was a five ( six if you include the Amuse Bouche) course meal with drink pairings with flavors varying from tart to sweet to savory. The plating was beautiful, the drink names inventive and both Concept Chef Nate Cicoria and Bar master Will Forsythe explained the menu and drinks things thoroughly to us.

So what were my thoughts overall? Well I enjoyed it to the fullest. I really loved how all the flavors complimented one another AND let me tell you about one of my favorite drinks that I just couldn’t stop drinking, “Enter the Dragon” which was the pairing with the second course. Absolutely incredible on every level. So lets get to the menu, the pictures and final thoughts. Hope you all enjoy!
