T.G.I. Friday's® invites guests to indulge this holiday season

Carrollton, Texas | November 8, 2011

Through the holiday season, Friday's® is inviting its guests to get into the spirit and indulge in the rich flavor of the new Jack Daniel's® Premium Grill items, including the juicy Black Angus Rib-Eye and the fresh Norwegian Salmon. Guests can also treat themselves to new, mouth-watering Langostino Lobster Topped Premium Entrees like the Black Angus Flat Iron Steak and the Black Angus Sirloin.

When people think of Friday's, often what comes to mind is the signature Jack Daniel's menu and the relaxed, celebratory atmosphere. The new, savory additions to this beloved menu expand on what guests already love about Friday's and provide the perfect way to celebrate the season at a great value.

"We're always looking for new ways to help our guests celebrate and enjoy that unique Friday's feeling, and this holiday season is no exception," said Ricky Richardson, executive vice president and chief concept officer, T.G.I. Friday's. "We want to invite our guests to indulge and treat themselves to a new twist on our Jack Daniel's menu, a mouthwatering Langostino Lobster topped entree or a completely new option or drink."

The new 10-ounce USDA Choice Black Angus Rib-Eye and fresh Norwegian Salmon are marinated in a homemade whiskey brine with hints of citrus, soy and ginger, fire-grilled to perfection and then basted in Friday's smoky-sweet Jack Daniel's sauce. The Black Angus Rib-Eye and the Norwegian Salmon are served on a sizzling skillet with grilled jalapeno cornbread and a choice of two sides. Both the rib-eye and the salmon are also available with Grilled Shrimp Scampi or Crispy Cajun Shrimp.

In addition to the Jack Daniel's items, Friday's is offering Langostino Lobster--to help turn any meal into a celebration. Tender pieces of wild-caught Langostino Lobster dripping in a zesty roasted Alfredo sauce with sauteed cremini mushrooms, fresh heirloom garlic, green onion and hand-chopped basil and served as the perfect complement to Black Angus steaks or Norwegian salmon.

Want to continue that Friday's feeling? Don't stop at the entrees! Friday's is also offering guests exciting refreshments to pair with the new menu items, including the JackBerry Smash cocktail, made with Jack Daniel's whiskey, peach schnapps and blackberries. And for dessert, guests can indulge in the Cinnamon Apple Spiced Crumble dessert, which can be included in a guest's meal from the latest Pick 2 for $10 menu.
