DENVER, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- American restaurant icon T.G.I. Friday's has paid close attention to the evolving tastes of its consumers. Friday's has answered the call with an updated restaurant and bar menu with Friday's favorites and more than 20 fresh and exciting brand new dishes and drinks that reflect Friday's innovation and energetic vibe. Friday's is a gathering place to re-energize from the stresses of the day, and the new menu encourages diners to taste new flavors, share with friends and family and simply, to have fun. The new menu is available now at Denver-area Friday's restaurants.

Friday's re-energized menu features fresh, bold flavors for today's modern palates. Denver-area diners will find a new menu that looks and feels familiar but has a modern twist.

New inventive burgers, fresh salads and crisp pizzas round out new menu items. Of course, Friday's has kept customer favorites like the Jack Daniels Grill, Crispy Green Bean Fries, and its delectable desserts.

Inventive new dishes cooked to order with fresh ingredients and a whole new section of sharable plates are the centerpiece of the new menu. Friday's is a place where people come to unwind and re-energize and part of that is being with friends and family. The new menu is elevating that Friday's vibe to a whole new level.

"We've added even more freshly prepared, made-to-order dishes – the kind of food on which Friday's was built. We're known for creating new, creative flavor combinations on both our food and bar menus. Our new menu is no exception. It embraces freshness and flavor, giving our diners more reasons to come in and see what's new at Friday's," said Ricky Richardson, Friday's chief concept officer.

A Friday's visit wouldn't be complete without a trip to the bar, the place from where Friday's energetic vibe radiates. Friday's bar and drink menu are also getting an upgrade, featuring local brews, new wine selections and bold new cocktail concoctions with fresh berry purees.  

Denver has six T.G.I. Friday's restaurants: Northfield at Stapleton, Aurora Mall, South Aurora on Parker Rd., Lone Tree at Park Meadows Mall, Thornton off of 120th, and Longmont. In addition to the menu changes, three restaurants will undergo cosmetic changes, spreading the fun Friday's vibe from the bar into the dining area. As part of the menu unveiling, T.G.I.
