Camille’s Sidewalk Café, a Tulsa, Oklahoma–based franchisor of fast-casual, coastal inspired restaurant/cafés, announced the immediate system-wide rollout of its brand new Antipasto Salad Plate.

The term antipasto means “before the meal” and is the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. It generally includes cured meats, olives, anchovies, artichoke hearts, cheeses, and other pickled meats and vegetables.

“Our café’s version includes a flavorful variety of meats, including our wonderful tuna salad, roasted red peppers, provolone, artichoke hearts, olives, Mozzarella, basil pesto, and Italian dressing,” says Camille Rutkauskas, founder and chief creative officer of the brand. “This is a nice winter holiday salad that is not only delicious and satisfying, but also it’s healthy, too.

“Antipasti does not typically show up on the menu of fast-casual or fast-food restaurants,” she adds. “Customers continue to request items that are gluten-free and more healthful. They expect a step up here at our café—and that’s what we give them.”
