Discount and new menu really rock

Hard Rock Cafe this spring rolled out a redesigned menu following more than 14 months of culinary development.

The brand surveyed more than 3,000 guests in cafes across four continents and 14 cities to collect feedback on more than 100 items from its existing and redesigned test menus. The process resulted in the addition of 30 new items and the modification of 28 existing menu items.

New items include the Grilled Chicken Chop Salad, and a Grilled Vegetable Sandwich with balsamic reduction (pictured at left). Ninety percent of taste testers said they would order these dishes again.

New desserts (house-made Carrot Cake, Molten Lava Cake, and Cheesecake with Oreo Cookie Pieces) also received high marks.

Just as sweet is the discount offered to AAA members at Hard Rock Cafe locations. Receive a 10-percent discount on food, non-alcoholic beverages, and merchandise at all U.S. and select international locations. Just show your AAA membership card to your server.

Sign up for Hard Rock Rewards and earn points in addition to your AAA discount. The savings can add up.

Hard Rock Cafe locations include Biloxi, Miss.; New Orleans, La.; and St. Louis, Mo.
