The Habit Burger Grill Adds Three Menu Items Just in Time for the New Year

Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich, Portabella Charburger, and Super Food Salad Highlight The Habit’s Menu

(IRVINE, CA) Jan. 3, 2017 – The popular The Habit Restaurants, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) today announces the permanent addition of the Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich, Portabella Charburger, and Super Food Salad to its menu. The New Year calls for a new habit – or three.

“The Habit strives to meet our guest’s adventurous appetites with a single notion: bold flavors at a great value,” said Adam Baird, executive chef at The Habit Burger Grill. “These new menu items demonstrate The Habit’s dedication to serving a variety of flavors and craveable entrees made with high-quality ingredients.”

The Habit’s Portabella Charbuger ($4.75) has mushroom lovers hooked on its juicy, umami flavor after just one bite. This single Charburger is crafted with 100% fresh ground beef and layered with garlic sautéed portabella mushrooms, melted cheese, and served on a toasted sesame seed bun with roasted garlic aioli, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

Fans of the crispy, flavorfully seasoned Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich ($6.50) will appreciate that this item now permanently on The Habit’s menu. This made-to-order sandwich starts with a fresh chicken breast that is hand-dipped — twice — into house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk before being cooked to golden perfection. The Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich is topped with a spicy red pepper sauce and served with fresh sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and tangy pickles on a soft toasted bun.

The Habit’s Super Food Salad ($7.99) serves up an extra helping of healthful greens. This fresh, good-for-you salad kicks off with a perfectly chargrilled, hand-filleted chicken breast that is served over quinoa, baby kale and crisp garden lettuce, tart yet sweet Craisins®, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and tangy feta cheese tossed in The Habit’s house-made kale pesto vinaigrette.
