Eat, drink and be healthy this New Year.
A Resolution menu of lighter fare, available at Cleveland’s Hospitality Restaurants through the end of March, will help increase your healthy diet success rate.
The restaurants are featuring an appetizer of butternut squash soup made with low-fat yogurt, roasted chestnuts and sage ($6). Entrees are grilled black tiger shrimp with ginger-miso dressing ($13 lunch, $17 dinner), and grilled chicken over whole-wheat penne pasta in a light white wine and basil aglio e olio sauce ($12 lunch, $17 dinner). The Cabin Club restaurant is offering a vegetarian burger with low-fat mozzarella on whole-grain ciabatta bun ($12 lunch and dinner). Salmon Dave’s and the Blue Pointe Grill are featuring grilled Faroe Islands salmon over barley and butternut squash “risotto” ($13 lunch, $19 dinner). The chefs at the three restaurants will also prepare your favorite meat or seafood with a healthful sauce of olive oil, lemon, herbs and tomatoes, served with steamed rice and seasonal vegetables.
“Many of our guests have been appreciative of the opportunity to dine on some full-flavored dishes knowing they are in line with their dietary attempts to ‘turn a new page’ on a healthier lifestyle,” George Schindler, president of Hospitality Restaurants, said.
