Perry’s Italian Grille and Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille Add New Low-Carb Pastas to Menu
Restaurants Provide Health-Conscious Customers with Pasta Alternatives Containing only Five Digestible Carbs
HOUSTON (March 22, 2004)—Perry’s Italian Grille and Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille, the Houston-based, family-owned restaurants renown for their exceptional service, food and casual elegance, today announced the addition of three new low-carb pastas to their menus.
With the recent increase in dietary trends and programs, Perry’s responded to the needs of its health-conscious customers by offering pastas low in digestible carbohydrates as a menu alternative.
“As more and more of our clientele adhere to healthier eating habits, we want to provide them with pasta alternatives rich in natural taste and texture without compromising the finest premium pastas that our customers have come to expect from Perry’s,” said Chris Perry, president and CEO of Perry’s Restaurant Group. “These pasta alternatives add a new element to our menu while maintaining our tradition of providing only the best for our customers.”
Perry’s will feature low-carb spaghetti, linguini and penne pastas, each containing only five grams of digestible carbohydrates per two-ounce dry pasta portion. A two-ounce dry pasta portion, which translates into an eight-ounce serving when cooked, usually yields 32-40 grams of digestible carbohydrates in regular pastas.
“The new pastas are not only better from a health standpoint, but taste just as good as regular pasta dishes,” stated Perry. “Customers who have tried the new alternatives have been presently surprised by the way we’ve retained such a savory flavor.”
Perry’s Italian Grille, with locations in Clear Lake and Sugar Land, will offer all three pasta dish options, while Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille, located in Clear Lake and The Woodlands, will serve the linguini.
Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille’s newest location in Sugar Land Town Square, which is scheduled to open in May, will also offer the linguini.
Perry’s utilizes pasta with a low level of fiber blend added to the flour creating pastas with low carbohydrate digestibility. The fiber blend protects the carbohydrates in the pasta from being broken down by natural enzymes so they are not digested but perform as a dietary fiber, much like whole grains.
