RUBY TUESDAY REVEALS DELICIOUS NEW MENU ITEMS & NEWLY DESIGNED MENUS

by Ruby Tuesday | Dec 05, 2016

From crave-able new appetizers, prepared salads and pasta dishes to new drinks and desserts, Ruby Tuesday is focusing on freshness and value with the goal of maximizing guest satisfaction.

MARYVILLE, Tenn. – November 15, 2016 – Ruby Tuesday today unveiled fresh new entrées, appetizers, drinks and desserts all showcased in redesigned lunch, dinner, drink and dessert menus.

To better serve guests, Ruby Tuesday added 14 new menu items that feature high quality ingredients and intriguing flavor profiles, all aimed at offering guests better, and contemporary dining choices. There are four new freshly prepared salads (BBQ Chicken Salad, Crispy Chicken Cobb Salad, Mediterranean Chicken Salad or Kale Caesar Salad) that can be served three ways (traditional, chopped or stuffed in a warm baguette). With crave-able new offerings in the pastas and appetizers categories as well as the prepared salads, the new menu has something for everyone. For those looking for a taste of indulgence, guests can enjoy new sweet treats and a unique lineup of beverages from the newly revamped drink and dessert menu.

“Today’s consumers are looking for options that are not only delicious, but are also unique, affordable and something they can’t easily make for themselves or get at the store,” said Joel Reynders, Director of Culinary for Ruby Tuesday. “Ruby Tuesday is all about foods that are made with high quality ingredients. We love to experiment with new flavors and spent a lot of time in the test kitchen drawing up distinctive dishes that feature lean proteins and use fresh-cut vegetables – like those found in our Garden Bar – in order to offer excellent meals to our guests.”

“With a variety of fresh new offerings and a new menu designed to show them off, we’re confident the changes will be a hit with current guests as well as new guests,” said David Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Ruby Tuesday. “We’re eager to hear what our guests think of the new Ruby Tuesday menu. We believe they’ll enjoy the everyday affordability and delicious new items.”
