Romano’s Macaroni Grill Celebrates Its Birthday by Declaring Wednesday, April 19, National Chicken Parmesan Day

Restaurants Offer BOGO for Five Days to Celebrate

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Romano’s Macaroni Grill, a national restaurant chain that creates
authentic, inventive Italian dishes, is declaring its birthday, April
19, as National Chicken Parmesan Day and will offer a buy-one-get-one
free Chicken Parmesan entrée to their guests April 19 through April 23,
2017, at all of its 125
locations in the United States

Chicken Parmesan has been one of Macaroni Grill’s most beloved entrees
since founder Phil Romano wrote the restaurant’s original recipe book
for the first location on April 19, 1988. Inspired by the Southern
Italian regions of Campania and Sicily, Romano’s signature recipe
features hand-pounded, fresh chicken breast coated with a Milanese-style
breadcrumb parmesan mixture which is then topped with Pomodorina sauce
made from Emilia Romagna tomatoes in Northern Italy and Buffalo
Mozzarella from the Lupara family farm in Vitulazio, Italy. The entrée
is then served with a side of bronze-cut capellini imported from the
Pastificio Guido Ferrara family just outside Naples, Italy. Using bronze
cut dies creates imperfections in the pasta’s surface allowing it to
hold more cheese, meat, and sauce than a perfect cut would.

Macaroni Grill’s culinary team prepares each guest’s dish cooked to
order in an open kitchen so guests can see the ingredients and culinary
techniques in action.

“What better way to celebrate our birthday than with one of our most
favorite dishes?” said Holly Wagstaff, Vice President of Marketing for
Macaroni Grill. “It’s a classic dish that’s been a guest favorite since
day one, so we’re happy to offer a free Chicken Parmesan entrée that
allows everyone to taste the extraordinary flavors of Italy.”

Macaroni Grill’s National Chicken Parmesan Day BOGO promotion will be
available at all United States restaurants, excluding airport, Puerto
Rico and Hawaii locations, for lunch or dinner, dine-in or take-out,
from Wednesday, April 19 through Sunday, April 23, 2017. For more
