Menu Tracker: New items from Applebee’s, Buffalo Wild Wings and Fazoli’s

Plus innovation at Chevys Fresh Mex, Chick N Max, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Logan’s Roadhouse , Long John Silver’s, Pita Mediterranean Street Food, Taco Del Mar, Velvet Taco, and Zalat Pizza

Long John Silver’s is experimenting with seafood-free crab and fish made with legumes. That would be huge news if it were being tested systemwide, but it’s only in five locations at the moment. It’s worthy of note of course, which is exactly what we’re doing here.

Logan’s Roadhoouse has a new actual seafood dish on the menu in the form of American farm-raised catfish, and Velvet Taco wanted to use lobster in its Weekly Taco Feature, but it ran into supply issues and is instead reprising its Chicken Cordon Bleu Taco, last seen in March.

Elsewhere in chicken, Buffalo Wild Wings has a new fried chicken sandwich, Chevys Fresh Mex has a chopped chicken salad and Chick N Max has a smoked chicken salad sandwich.

Chicken is an option on Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s new Hatch Green Chile Taco, and on Taco Del Mar’s new torta

Pita Mediterranean Street Food is testing several vegetarian starters, and Zalat Pizza has a new meatless pesto pizza as a permanent addition.

Fazoli’s has new manicotti and Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar has new cocktails featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s own brand of tequila.
