Newk's Tackles the Century-old Battle for Best French Dip - Philippe's or Cole's?
CEO and Founder Chris 'Newk' Newcomb said neither… and came up with his own
JACKSON, Miss. - Oct. 4, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Newk's Eatery, recently named "Best Overall Experience in Fast Casual" by Technomic at the National Restaurant Association conference, announces the launch of its version of the French Dip Au Jus, now available for a limited-time through December.
"I was intrigued by a century-old battle between two LA restaurants claiming to have created the 'original' French Dip," said Chris 'Newk' Newcomb, CEO and founder of Newk's Eatery. "One day, I had both sandwiches shipped to Jackson for a taste-test. I decided neither was good enough for Newk's. My unique recipe, with tender, juicy roast beef, onions caramelized in-house, melted Ammerlander Swiss cheese, warm dip of savory au jus, and spicy creole mustard, is what sets Newk's sandwich on a level above the rest."
This season for a limited time, Newk's also introduces:
Grilled Steak & Portabella Pizza
- Flame-grilled petite tenderloin steak, grilled portabella mushrooms, caramelized onions, mozzarella cheese and rich vine-ripened tomato sauce, topped with Gorgonzola cheese
Italian Chopped Salad
- Genoa salami and julienned ham, pimientos, Garbanzo beans, sliced pepperoncinis, shredded provolone and chopped basil
Zesty Garbanzo Bean Salad
- With lemon and feta, available as a side with any sandwich
Dozen-Layer Pumpkin Spice Cake
- Made fresh everyday from Newk's own bakery
The centerpiece of the Newk's dining room is The Roundtable – which offers a generous selection of free premium garnishes, including imported pepperoncini, Torinesi-style breadsticks, grated Parmesan, house-made croutons, bread & butter pickles, along with seasonal features like toasted garbanzo beans. Known for its collectible 32 oz. cup, Newk's also features an Iced Tea Bar with fresh-brewed Rainforest Alliance Certified iced teas: unsweet, sweet, sweetened with Splenda® and a seasonal brew – now a Raspberry Iced Tea, which features a high-grown Kenyan black tea blended with real berries and black currents, balanced with rosehips and hibiscus flowers.
Newk's offers online ordering, mobile app/skip the line options, as well as catering for groups of all sizes. For more information, please visit www.newks.com.
