FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Nov. 2, 2023) – Delaware North, a global hospitality and entertainment company, today announced the official grand opening of casual-dining seafood restaurant Bonefish Grill at Broward County’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).

The 115-seat restaurant is located post-security in Terminal 3 along the connector walkway between Concourses E and F. The 4,500-square-foot airport outpost of the popular national brand is situated next door to The Market on Las Olas, which opened in August as the first location in a Florida airport to feature Amazon’s checkout-free shopping platform.

“We have been eagerly awaiting the debut of Bonefish Grill at FLL as part of the final phase of new concessions to open in our multiyear Terminal 3 modernization program, and the wait was worth it,” FLL CEO/Director of Aviation Mark Gale said. “It simply looks great, and the restaurant’s attractive décor, stunning centerpiece bar, airfield views and seafood-themed menu are a welcomed addition to the airport’s offerings. Travelers are going to love it.”

The chef-inspired menu at Bonefish Grill includes options for children, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with a full bar that features beer, wine and spirits.

“The debut of Bonefish Grill adds another excellent full-service dining option,” said Eric Haseman, director of operations for Delaware North Travel in Florida. “This is a momentous time for us, with the opening of three new outlets in recent months and more on the horizon.”

In addition to The Market on Las Olas, Delaware North also introduced the Topo Chico Hard Seltzer Cantina in Terminal 3, Concourse E in late September. The 20-seat concept offers a variety of Topo Chico’s hard seltzers, along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

Delaware North is in preparation for the launch of a Terminal 3 food court, featuring a blend of national and local fast-casual brands. The completion of this three-concept food court, anticipated in early 2024, marks the culmination of Delaware North’s 26-unit foodservice program at FLL.
