Revamped Red Lobster Menu Has More Lobster Than Ever Before
More lobster at Red Lobster? In an effort to win back customers, the seafood chain restaurant announced a new menu on Monday that offers more seafood dishes, improves menu items and does away with unpopular, non-seafood fare like the Spicy Tortilla Soup and Wood-Grilled Pork Chop.
According to the Associated Press, the new menu is 85 percent seafood (up from 75 percent) and four of the five new dishes contain lobster. The popular "Ultimate Feast" platter will include 50 percent more shrimp, and its price will go up a dollar to $26.99.
"Lobster isn't our middle name, it is our name. That's why with this menu we introduced a variety of new, craveable lobster-based dishes," said Salli Setta, President of Red Lobster in a press release. "We put it all together in a newly redesigned menu that is more visual and organized in a way that helps guests choose from all the seafood options we have to offer."
The menu changes are the first following investment firm Golden Gate Capital's acquisition of Red Lobster from Darden, which owns Olive Garden, in July.
