New + Notable: The Summer Edition
Summer is on its way (finally!) and we have so many new dishes and drinks in store, it might just take you all season to try them all out. Take a look at our epic list below to see our New + Notable menu additions. Availabilities vary by location, so be sure to check out the menu at your favourite Earls.
New + Notable Dishes
Thai Lobster Salad
This summery salad has a touch of spice and is filled to the brim with authentic Thai flavours like fresh squeezed lime juice, fragrant lemongrass, and sweet mangoes. Topped with succulent lobster, the new Thai Lobster Salad is a light but still indulgent option, perfectly suited for those warm summer patio sessions. Available at select Canadian and US locations.
You asked, we listened. We’re introducing the ever-popular Beyond Burger™ to the menu–and even better yet, you can get yours 100% plant-based (and yes, a fully vegan option is available–including the bun and condiments). Complete with all the fixin’s, and now available at all Canadian locations. American friends, don’t fret–the Impossible Burger is still on your plant-based menu!
Butter Chicken Curry
When you’re in the mood for something more filling, look no further than our new Butter Chicken Curry. A delicious combination of Tandoori chicken and silky butter chicken sauce, paired with warm garlic naan and softly scented basmati rice. Available at most Canadian locations.
Okay, we admit it, we’re addicted to the new Lobster Tostadas, and they’ve become our go-to shareable appetizer that’s lighter and healthier. Loaded with fresh sweet lobster and bright pico de gallo layered on top of a smooth avocado crema, how could you say no? (We can’t. That’s how.) Available at select Canadian locations.
We’ve got some great news for our US crew: we’re bringing our insanely popular Buffalo Cauliflower to your menus! These delicious bites pack a punch to rival your favorite hot wings. And as an added bonus, they’re also available vegan–just ask your server next time you’re in. Wing Night just got a whole lot better.
Mediterranean Ling Cod
We’re really getting in on the coastal vibes with our new Mediterranean Ling Cod. Pan seared to perfection, the ling cod is elegantly paired with vibrant Mediterranean vegetables and a bright basil pesto, served with a side of spiced tomato clam broth to pour overtop. Available exclusively at select Canadian and US locations.
Blackberry Peach Cobbler
This Southern-inspired dessert has sunshine written all over it! Sweet blackberries and peaches are married together with hints of lavender and nutmeg underneath a golden brown crumble, served hot out of the oven with vanilla bean gelato to keep things cool. Available at Canadian locations only.
Key Lime Pie
This dessert really needs no introduction, but we’ll try: Zesty lime. Fluffy Chantilly cream. Sweet hazelnut streusel. Is your mouth watering yet? Back by popular demand, one of the most iconic summer desserts is coming to all US Earls locations.
Southern Fried Chicken + Waffles
New to brunch at all Canadian Earls locations is another inspiration straight from the South. The Southern Fried Chicken + Waffles features buttermilk-marinated chicken served on a heap of waffles that are crispy on the outside and oh-so-fluffy on the inside. Even better, this new dish is also available during Brunch Happy Hour, too! Pour some good ol’ maple syrup overtop and enjoy.
New + Notable Drinks
Let’s be clear: Aperol Spritz is the perfect summer drink, and we are here for it. So much so that we’re saying saluti! to this iconic cocktail all summer long! Made with Aperol and refreshing Prosecco, a quick getaway to the Italian coast is now just a patio drink away. Best enjoyed with friends (especially during Happy Hour), so rally the troops and raise your glasses to the Summer of Aperol Spritz!
Speaking of glasses, Bailey Nelson is also such a fan of the Aperol Spritz that their “Amy” shades are now available in Spritz. This summer, we’re partnering with their team by giving away a pair of these beautiful sunglasses along with Earls gift cards! How can you get in on this? Follow us at @earlsrestaurant and stay tuned for your chance to win!
On Wednesdays we get Naked. Naked Highballs, that is. Stripped down but fully flavoured, they’re our brand new sugar-free low-calorie drinks available at Happy Hour pricing all day every Wednesday! Try out the Strawberry Kiwi + Vodka, Cucumber + Gin, or Tropical Pineapple + Vodka.
Sometimes the occasion calls for a non-alcoholic drink, and we’re all for that! Introducing our two new spirit-free cocktails: the Calamansi Caipirinha (pronounced cah-preen-ya) and the Sparkling Yuzu Lemonade. Both drinks have just the right amount of citrus, the right balance of sweetness, and the right kind of vibes for when you need something extra refreshing. Go ahead and order multiples–you can never have one too many.
