If you haven't already heard of Stonefire Grill with 7 locations across the Southland, find out where the nearest one to you is, quick! Stonefire Grill has emerged as one of the most popular restaurants thanks to its diverse menu of freshly made American favorites. Now the fast-casual concept is introducing a new Healthy Alternatives Menu with items containing fewer than 500 calories, (you heard right). Stonefire Grill teamed up with Healthy Dining and HealthyDiningFinder.com to develop the nutritionally sound menu that is in keeping with the restaurants’ commitment to serving satisfying food distinguished by bold flavor profiles.
Don’t think for a minute that less calories means less flavor. Check out the list of mouth-watering items on the new Healthy Alternatives Menu with an assortment of Stonefire Grill favorites including, Spinach Salad no dressing (440 calories), Cheeseless Grilled Veggie Pizza (170 calories per slice), Italian Chopped Salad with Chicken no dressing (500 calories), Mesquite BBQ Chicken Breast (240 calories per serving; serves 2), Mesquite BBQ Tri Tip (210 calories per serving; serves 4), Sesame Glazed Fresh Salmon (350 calories per serving; serves 2), Grilled Vegetables with Feta cheese (110 calories per serving; serves 2), and Cowboy Beans (180 calories). Yummy!
The food is prepared in an open kitchen where you can see the grilled food being prepared and watch the chefs in action. The barbeque chicken, Tri-tip and seasonal vegetables are cooked on an open mesquite flame to perfection. The Entree salads are big portions with an assortment of delectable dressings. Healthy eating never tasted so good. And for the guests who are less calorie conscious, there are plenty of other delicious menu choices to choose from including Stonefire Grills moist and Incredible Carrot Cake, Heavenly Cheesecake (served plain or with their fresh blueberry sauce), or Stonefire Grill's Famous Fudge Brownie. Calorie counters are given the option of a half portion of either the carrot or the cheesecake, (but believe me, you'll want the whole thing).
“We created the Healthy Alternatives Menu in response to the growing number of guests who request specific nutritional information to accommodate their dietary needs,” said Mary Harrigan, who launched Stonefire Grill with her sister, Maureen, in 2000. “Our goal was to reinterpret some of our popular menu items with an eye toward making them more nutritionally sound without sacrificing the bold flavor and overall satisfaction that comes with dining at Stonefire Grill. Our test markets show that diners really love the new items.”
Added Erica Bohm, Vice President for Healthy Dining, “We recognize restaurants like Stonefire Grill that are not required to offer healthy options but do so to accommodate their guests’ needs. Since dining out is central to the American lifestyle – and more Americans than ever are interested in health and nutrition – Healthy Dining has become a powerful program that is contributing to a healthier America by bringing together the restaurant industry's ‘culinary brilliance’ with America's quest for healthier cuisine.”
