Good seafood is hard to find in the Hudson Valley. That's why Dutchess County residents loved Bonefish Grill.

Many were saddened when the place suddenly closed in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bonefish Grill closed their doors permanently just as New York entered the third phase of reopening. Bonefish Grill was one of the first restaurants to offer a large-scale outdoor seating area but it wasn't enough to keep the doors open. Bonefish even offered online discount codes good through this past weekend through a Facebook ad.

They officially were closed at about this time back in 2020. According to their website, the closest location is in Paramus, New Jersey for now.

The building has been left vacant since then and it looks like someone is finally moving into the old Bonefish Grill building on Rte 9 in Poughkeepsie, New York.

The restaurant moving into the vacant location is not a stranger to the Hudson Valley. They currently have a location about 20 minutes down the road. They aren't a seafood restaurant either so patrons will be getting an entirely new experience here.
