Additional limited-time, spring menu items:

- Giardiniera Italian Relish: A handmade tangy relish of pickled spring vegetables, available as a complimentary garnish on Newk's Roundtable where guests get freebies like housemade croutons, shredded parmesan, sliced peppers and capers.
Off Menu Feature: Grilled Chicken Red, White & Blueberry Salad: Baby spinach tossed with grilled chicken, fresh-cut watermelon, strawberries and blueberries, topped with crumbled feta cheese and dressed din fat-free raspberry vinaigrette. While not featured on any printed menu, this seasonal favorite returns so Newk's loyal guests can order it by name.
"Our seasonal menus are sourced from the best-of-the-best ingredients at their peak freshness," said Chris Newcomb, Newk's chief executive officer and co-founder. "With Newk's Surf and Turf menu, we're proud to feature sushi-grade Ahi Tuna, petite tenderloin steak and more premium ingredients prepared by hand."
To help build the perfect spread for spring events and parties, guests can also enjoy spring catering options like Newk's "Q" Sliders, made with freshly grilled chicken, Newk's white BBQ sauce, melted Ammerländer Swiss cheese, and crumbled bacon, or Chicken Parmesan Sliders, made with flame-grilled chicken breasts, zesty marinara and melted Ammerländer Swiss cheese.
At Newk's, every dish is prepared in open-view kitchens with premium ingredients. Newk's ingredients - including dressings, fruits and vegetables - are hand-prepared, and meats are hand-sliced and flame-grilled so every Newk's meal is truly served fresh. Newk's serves made-from-scratch sandwiches, entrée salads, kettle-batch soups and hand-crafted pizzas for lunch and dinner, as well as homemade desserts such as signature 12-layer cakes.
The new menu offerings are available at Newk's' 116 restaurants.
