Red Lobster® Celebrates The Return Of Lobsterfest®
ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning today, Lobsterfest is back at Red Lobster! Lobsterfest is a celebration of everything lobster and is the one time of year guests can choose from the largest variety of lobster dishes on the menu. During Lobsterfest, there's a perfect dish for everyone, including new and guest favorites.
"Our guests love Lobsterfest because there are so many irresistible lobster options for them to choose from," said Danielle Connor, SVP of Menu Strategy & Development. "Whether guests are looking to try different types of lobster – Maine, rock or langostino – or want to enjoy a new preparation, like a Maine lobster tail topped with lobster mac and cheese, there is a dish for everyone to enjoy."
For guests who want to make lobster the star of the plate, Red Lobster has several craveable options, like the NEW! Dueling Lobster Tails, featuring a duo of roasted sweet Maine lobster tails – one topped with creamy lobster mac and cheese made with langostino lobster, cavatappi pasta and a blend of Gruyere, American and Parmesan cheeses, the other stuffed with savory lobster and seafood stuffing. Or, guests can enjoy Lobster Lover's Dream®, a returning guest favorite, featuring a succulent rock lobster tail and a sweet Maine lobster tail, both roasted and served with a creamy shrimp and lobster linguini alfredo.
This year's Lobsterfest also features several new lobster and seafood combinations, including the NEW! Langostino Lobster-Topped Tilapia with Mushroom Cream Sauce, featuring wood-grilled fresh tilapia topped with Chilean langostino lobster in a rich and creamy three-cheese mushroom sauce, and the NEW! Steakhouse Lobster Surf & Turf. Or, guests can choose from menu favorites, including Wood-Grilled Lobster, Shrimp and Salmon, Seaport Lobster and Shrimp, Roasted Lobster Bake and Lobster Scampi.
Guests can make any Lobsterfest celebration even more special with an appetizer, cocktail or dessert. The NEW! Chilled Lobster and Shrimp Cocktail appetizer is a great choice to start any meal, featuring lobster and shrimp that are poached in-house and served with Red Lobster's signature cocktail sauce over a bed of shaved ice. As a complement, guests can choose from two refreshing, fruit-based cocktails – one with rum and the other with vodka. The Red Lobster Sunset blends vodka, raspberries and citrus juices, and last year's guest-favorite Lobster Punch mixes pineapple and mango fruit juices, and Malibu Red Rum topped with Bacardi Black Rum. To complete the meal, Red Lobster is offering a twist on a classic favorite with the NEW! Bananas Foster Cheesecake, featuring two slices of caramel cheesecake topped with warm, freshly sliced bananas, caramel and spiced rum and served with vanilla ice cream and candied pecans.
Throughout Lobsterfest, guests are invited to use the hashtag – #lobsterworthy – on social media to share the big and small moments that are so good, they can only be celebrated with lobster. Guests can engage with the brand on Red Lobster's Facebook, Fresh Catch Club, visit Red Lobster's website.
