“We created the Healthy Alternatives Menu in response to the growing number of guests who request specific nutritional information to accommodate their dietary needs,” said Mary Harrigan, who launched Stonefire Grill with her sister, Maureen, in 2000. “Our goal was to reinterpret some of our popular menu items with an eye toward making them more nutritionally sound without sacrificing the bold flavor and overall satisfaction that comes with dining at Stonefire Grill. Our test markets show that diners really love the new items.”

Added Erica Bohm, Vice President for Healthy Dining, “We recognize restaurants like Stonefire Grill that are not required to offer healthy options but do so to accommodate their guests’ needs. Since dining out is central to the American lifestyle – and more Americans than ever are interested in health and nutrition – Healthy Dining has become a powerful program that is contributing to a healthier America by bringing together the restaurant industry’s culinary brilliance’ with America’s quest for healthier cuisine.”
