Food News: The Cheesecake Factory Adds Low-Cal Menu

By: Victoria Phillips

The Cheesecake Factory is well-known for its high calorie appetizers, entrees and especially decadent desserts. Starting August 9, however, the chain restaurant will debut a calorie conscience menu, called "SkinnyLicious."

The menu contains almost 50 new and signature items all under 590 calories. Some of the dishes include Mexican Tortilla Soup and Tuscan Chicken, plus revamped versions of current menu items like Chicken Pot Stickers and Asian Chicken Salad. Five cocktails, under 150 calories each, are also featured.

"We wanted to create a menu that delivers an exceptional dining experience to our calorie-conscious guests, without compromising the delicious taste that people have come to expect from The Cheesecake Factory," David Overton, founder of The Cheesecake Factory, said in a press release.
