Frankie & Benny’s has announced the launch of their delicious Christmas menu featuring classic Italian dishes and a vegan offering in every course.

The festive range features delicious classics with an Italian American twist.

Combining Frankie’s favourite dishes and flavours and their love of a good time, there’s something for everyone – including vegan options in every course, a meatball homage to the Christmas turkey, naughty (and nice) sweet treats and of course festive drinks to top it all off.

The Christmas menu follows a national refresh of the Italian American brand focusing on their passion for quality food and community spirit of Little Italy.

The nationwide rebrand of the 230+ restaurants, which next year celebrates its 25th anniversary, is designed to attract a more grown up audience as well as inviting friends and families.

The Christmas menu which launches on 12th November starts with a twist on a Christmas classic with Breaded Shrimp Cocktail, a hearty vegan Tuscan Soup and cheese-filled Quattro Formaggi Ravioli.

Main courses include a homage to the Christmas Turkey inspired by the much-loved guest favourite of Frankie’s Classic Meatballs in the shape of a creamy Turkey Meatball Carbonara and Turkey Meatball Pizza with cranberry sauce, an indulgent Brie & Cranberry Burger and a vegan Mediterranean Lasagne.

Desserts are inspired by classic festive recipes such as Trifle Sundae, Chocolate Profiterole Cake, and an unbelievably creamy vegan Mince Pie No-Cheesecake.

Drinks include a naughty and nice Cookies & Cream Martini, a vegan Frisky Lemonade and for those looking for an alcohol-free option, Sleigh All Day featuring Ceder’s non-alcoholic spirit as well as unlimited refills of Appletiser and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar for the designated drivers.

Brand & Strategy Director Elise Ash said: “At Frankie & Benny’s we love nothing more than creating lasting memories over good food & drink with great company. So this year, try Christmas Frankie & Benny’s style and make it a season to remember.”

The festive specials will be available to enjoy as part of a great value set menu starting at 14.99 or on their own from Tuesday 12th November.
