COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For centuries, risotto has been a dish savored by the Italians and people across the world who embrace the exceptional style of Italian cooking. Now, BRIO Tuscan Grille locations across the nation are presenting not only one, but two delectable and distinctive risotto dishes to guests through the "Tale of Two Risottos" promotion, Jan. 19–March 27. Each dish is available at both lunch at dinner, and priced at only $19.95. BRIO is owned and operated by Columbus-based BRAVO I BRIO Restaurant Group (BBRG).
A "Tale of Two Risottos" brings to the table the following savory risotto dishes:
- Lobster and Shrimp Risotto: Broiled Maine lobster tail served over risotto with shrimp, mushrooms, asparagus, roasted red peppers, basil and Parmesan
- Sea Scallops with Risotto: Five large, seared sea scallops served over a roasted vegetable ratatouille risotto
For the perfect complement to either of the risotto dishes, and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Conundrum white wine, BRIO recommends Conundrum white blend or red blend, priced at $11.95 glass.
"Authentic Italian risotto takes great care and expertise to make right, and BRIO is one of few restaurants to make the commitment necessary to serve a perfect risotto every day," said BBRG President & Chief Executive Officer Brian O'Malley. "At BRIO, we are pleased to offer guests this perennial favorite along with succulent lobster and shrimp, or delicate sea scallops through our 'Tale of Two Risottos' promotion."
