Red Lobster will be rolling out its brand new menu on October 15th, and it’s the biggest menu change the chain has made in a decade, reports Erin Dostal at Nation’s Restaurant News.Fifteen of the items are being called “Maine Stays.” These will stay on the menu permanently, making up the core of Red Lobster’s offerings.

They’re meant to be “destination items” and will cost $15 or less.

There will be more non-seafood items on the menu, to provide diners with a wider breadth of options. For instance, Red Lobster is adding pork chops for the first time ever.

Other new items include Wood-Grilled Chicken with Portobello Wine Sauce, Island-Grilled Mahi-Mahi and Shrimp and Tilapia with Roasted Vegetables.

Red Lobster — one of restaurant giant Darden’s brands — has been struggling a bit lately, with same-store sales dropping 2.6 per cent in Q1.
