Ford Fry opened BeetleCat, his fifth restaurant of 2015, last Monday in Inman Quarter. A couple of weeks into service, the lunch program will launch this Friday, January 8. The Ford Fry Restaurants team says diners should thing "surf shack ... lots of fried foods, lobster rolls, fish/chips, etc." Lunch is available Fridays only from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The menu comes with some interesting price points, charging a premium for seafood but offering bargains on hamburgers and other sandwiches. Three lobster rolls are available: the same mayo-dressed version that graces The Optimist's lunch menu, a second that's dressed with butter, and a third with mayo and butter. In addition to burgers, the seafood-wary can dine on a fried chicken sandwich and chili dog, plus onion rings and fries on the side.
BeetleCat's dinner service runs Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 3 p.m. 10 p.m. Late-night dining is offered Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. Take a look and BeetleCat's complete menus below.
