After winning the dubious distinction of earning first and second place on the “Worst Foods in America” list from Eat This, Not That, The Cheesecake Factory is rolling out a new menu option. The 165 chain restaurant is staggering the rollout, with the Beavercreek store set to debut on August 12th. “On the skinny menu, fresh veggies will replace potatoes on steak and fish entrees. Tacos will have less cheese. And chicken salad will be made with light mayo, says CEO David Overton.
The wide variety of selections featured on a standalone “Skinnylicious” menu include options ranging from appetizers to entrees and even some desserts.. The Small Plates Appetizers and fresh-baked Flatbreads categories feature dishes all under 490 calories, while the entre Salads and main courses are all served with 590 calories or less. Also featured are five Skinny Cocktails each with 150 calories or less.
The SkinnyLicious menu will also introduce 13 brand-new items including the Mexican Tortilla Salad, the SkinnyLicious Hamburger and Tuscan Chicken. Low-calorie favorites offered on The Cheesecake Factorys current menu such as the Beets with Goat Cheese, Chicken Pot Stickers and Asian Chicken Salad will also be offered on the SkinnyLicious menu.
