KONA GRILL ROLLS OUT LIMITED-TIME SUMMER MENU
Dolphin Mall spot offers new seasonal items, drink specials, and live entertainment
With summer in full swing, Kona Grill has a fresh slate of new temptations to offer. The popular American grill and sushi bar is rolling out its third limited-time seasonal menu of the year from Wednesday, July 20 to Sunday, September 4, 2016. Doral denizens and Dolphin Mall shoppers alike will be delighted by the six new dishes that Kona Grill has to offer, each encompassing the global and unique flavors that this sophisticated spot is known for.
Kona Grill’s appetizer selections will receive an added boost with the addition of the Grilled Chicken & Wild Mushroom Flatbread ($12.75) –- roasted garlic cream sauce, arugula, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan, and basil – and a summer-appropriate Caprese Salad ($10.50) with heirloom tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, balsamic reduction, and olive oil. Famous for their award-winning sushi program, the restaurant’s Tuna Mango Roll ($11.50) – a sweet and spicy mix of tuna, togarashi, mango, macadamia nuts, avocado, rose nectar cream cheese, habanero sauce, and cilantro – is sure to be a seasonal menu favorite.
Two enticing entrées make great use of seasonal ingredients and bold flavors. The Mauna Kea Burger ($13.50) consists of kobe, brisket and beef stuffed with pepper jack cheese, bacon and jalapeños, topped with even more pepper jack cheese and bacon, as well as onion strings, lettuce, and tomato, accompanied by homemade pickles and fries. On the other end of the spectrum, guests can enjoy a Lemongrass Crusted Swordfish ($23.75) served with white rice, seasonal vegetables, and coconut curry sauce
Looking for a lovely finish? Kona Grill’s rich Salted Caramel Crème Brulee ($7.75) topped with fresh whipped cream and homemade caramel popcorn will please the palate.
Summer is the season for refreshing libations. Put the shopping bags down and cool off with two seasonal cocktails; the Sun Kissed – 1800 Coconut Tequila, Grand Marnier, coconut water, Monin agave nectar, and pineapple, served with a coconut rim – and the Posh – Skyy Georgia Peach Vodka, Cruzan coconut rum, cranberry, and lemon, garnished with pineapple. Both drinks are ideal for sipping in Kona Grill’s lounge or on the outdoor patio.
While these can’t-miss seasonal items are available for a limited-time only, Kona Grill’s nightlife specials are year-round. The best Happy Hour in Doral offers select drinks and sushi rolls for only half the price, Monday through Friday from 3PM – 7PM, with Reverse Happy Hour available Monday to Thursday, 9PM – 11PM and Friday and Saturday, 11PM – 1AM. On Wine Down Wednesdays, the party starts early, with half-off bottles of wine available from open to close. Those searching for live entertainment needn’t go far as Kona Grill keeps the hits coming with a live DJ spinning the hottest tracks – with a few classics thrown into the mix – Wednesday and Saturday nights in the restaurant’s lounge area and sleek outdoor patio bar.
