Newk's Eatery Introduces Lenten Friendly Menu Items

Fresh-casual restaurant announces seafood, meatless menu items for spring 2014

Newk’s Eatery’s spring menu will prominently feature special culinary-inspired seafood dishes suited for the Lenten season. From March through mid-May, the popular Salmon & Arugula Salad introduced last spring will once again be at the center of the company’s limited time menu. It will appear alongside the company’s other year-round seafood fan favorites, Spicy Shrimp Pizza, Lobster Crab Bisque, Newk’s Signature Shrimp Po’boy, and Caesar Salad topped with Salmon. These selections will be available all week long in nearly 70 restaurants through May 11.

“Newk’s Eatery offers a variety of savory, freshly-prepared entrees served up tableside in our family-friendly restaurants,” said Alan Wright, vice president of marketing and franchise operations. “The flavorful ingredient combinations of our seafood dishes and our high-quality, grilled salmon filet that can be added to any of our entrées, give guests even more reasons to crave Newk’s.”

Newk’s Salmon & Arugula Salad is made of fresh baby arugula, grape tomatoes, parmesan cheese, a perfectly grilled filet of salmon and is finished with lively lemon basil dressing. One of last year’s most successful LTOs, the simply un-toppable salad is one of Newk’s classics with a twist, a classic that can easily fit in any diet. In addition to the Salmon & Arugula Salad, Newk’s Eatery offers menu items for the Lenten observer and seafood lover. Newk’s fresh catches include the Caesar Salmon Salad, Spicy Shrimp Pizza, the Shrimp Po’boy and Lobster Crab Bisque.

The casual, upscale Newk’s Eatery offers a variety of quality, craveable menu options from the open-view kitchens, including fresh-tossed salads, oven-baked sandwiches, California-style pizzas, made-from-scratch soups and homemade cakes. The culinary-driven dining concept features exceptional ingredient combinations that emphasize freshness and flavor. In keeping with the company’s values for quality ingredients, generous portions and from-scratch recipes, the limited time menu includes a variety of flavorful entrees for customers to enjoy throughout the season.
