"Our guests recognize Manhattan Bagel restaurants as a place to get a fast, fresh and friendly experience with high-quality food and down-to-earth pricing," said Paul Carolan, New World senior vice president of franchising. "The new 'Summer in the City' menu additions provide flavorful, lighter options for our guests as we head into the summer season." At all locations nationwide, the Manhattan Bagel menu features new Crisp Green Salads, including the New York Deli Salad, a blend of mixed greens, turkey, ham, hard-cooked egg, cheddar and Swiss cheeses, tomatoes and black olives; and the Country Club Salad, with mixed greens, grilled chicken breast, bacon, hard-cooked egg and tomatoes. Also, Manhattan Bagel welcomes back the Grilled Chicken Caesar, an all-time classic, and the Garden Market Salad, with mixed greens, cucumber, tomatoes, green peppers and red onions.

Guests will also be seeing more fruit on the menu, with the addition of the Fresh Fruit Salad, featuring fresh cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, red grapes and strawberries. Also, the Fruit, Yogurt & Granola Parfait features blueberries, raspberries and peaches with light vanilla yogurt and crunchy granola to give guests a fruity fresh and naturally good option for a light lunch or snack. Manhattan Bagel is also introducing its own fresh 100 percent orange juice, sure to complement any summer breakfast.

Just in time for those sweltering summer days, the Manhattan Chillerz(R) line of frozen drinks is coming back to the menu. Guests can choose from three new flavors - coffee, mocha and caramel latte. In addition, Manhattan Bagel Coffee can be served over ice for a refreshing summer treat.

"We know that our guests care about making healthier food choices, while enjoying unique and creative ingredient combinations," said David Ammons, vice president of marketing for Manhattan Bagel. "Each of these menu items has been developed to satisfy our guests' palates, and we hope that the new menu items we've created will become seasonal favorites."
