Bonefish Grill moves forward with plan to open in McCandless
Seafood restaurant Bonefish Grill is moving forward with plans to open a location in the McCandless Crossing retail and residential development under way off McKnight Road.
McCandless Council voted, 7-0, on Monday to approve a liquor license transfer from a closed restaurant in Duquesne to Bonefish Grill LLC.
The restaurant will be in a freestanding building, said Kevin Dougherty, president of AdVenture Development, the Selma, N.C.-based developer of the 130-acre McCandless Crossing development.
Site work for the Bonefish Grill location will start in late August or early September, he said. Bonefish Grill will construct its own building and open by summer 2014, depending on the weather's effect on the construction schedule, said Robert McGurk, project manager at AdVenture.
The Bonefish Grill brand is owned by Tampa, Fla.-based Bloomin' Brands Inc., which also owns Carrabba's Italian Grill. A Carrabba's will open in McCandless Crossing in summer 2014, McGurk said. Bonefish Grill also has a restaurant at South Hills Village in Upper St. Clair.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
