Dunkin’ Donuts Brings Its Own Kind of Coolatta® to Houston FOR FREE!

Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, today announced that it will celebrate Grand Openings of three new restaurants in the next 4 weeks in the greater Houston area.

July 27 - 4130 Fairmont Parkway, Pasadena, TX 77504 (9:30AM Grand Opening with Pasadena Mayor Johnny Isbell)

July 30 - 2330 South Shepherd Drive, Houston, TX 77019 (9:30AM Grand Opening with Houston area VIPs)

August 12 - Terminal E (Post-Security), George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), Houston, TX 77032 (Operated by noted travel retailer Hudson Group)

Earlier this year, the brand opened new restaurants in Missouri City near Sienna Plantation and in the Westchase District of Houston. Dunkin’ Donuts franchise partners now operate 6 Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the greater Houston area, and the three additional locations opening this summer along with a previously announced opening this fall in the Humble area will bring the count to 10. The new location on Shepherd will offer Free Coffee, medium size hot or iced, from July 22 – August 6. The new location in Pasadena will offer Free Coffee, medium size hot or iced, July 23 – August 13.

The new restaurants will be open from 5:00 am – 11:00 pm, 7 days a week and will employ approximately 30 crew members each. The restaurants will have comfortable seating and will provide a welcoming environment for guests to enjoy Dunkin’ Donuts’ food and beverages in a friendly and fun atmosphere. All locations will offer a complete menu of Dunkin' Donuts’ internationally recognized coffee, lattes, donuts and bakery goods. The restaurants will also serve items customized with flavors adapted to suit local taste preferences for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacking – any time is Dunkin’ time!

Heating up the menu for the new restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts will introduce the new Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich and Hot & Spicy Wake-Up Wrap. The Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich includes a spicy omelet featuring jalapeno peppers, red bell peppers and pepper jack cheese with habanero, served with two slices of bacon and a slice of white cheddar cheese on a plain bagel. The Hot & Spicy Wake-Up Wrap includes one-half of the spicy omelet, served with one slice of bacon and a slice of white cheddar cheese on a flour tortilla. Both are available through August at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide.

Now that they've made it hot and spicy they will need to help Houstonians keep it cool so they're offering a Raspberry Lime Coolatta® frozen drink! Featuring a sweet lime flavor with a hint of raspberry, the Raspberry Lime Coolatta is available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide. Dunkin’ Donuts offers several varieties of Coolattas to beat the heat this summer, including new Berry Blast, featuring a burst of pomegranate and blueberry taste; Hot Chocolate Coolatta, a refreshing frozen treat with rich, milk chocolate flavors that lets you love Hot Chocolate in a new, unexpectedly ‘cool’ way; and Minute Maid® Orange Coolatta, a favorite orange flavor in a refreshing frozen drink. Dunkin’ Donuts also just introduced Original Blend Iced Coffee K-Cup® packs, a new variety of the brand’s popular K-Cup® packs for use with the Keurig® K-Cup® Brewing System. Dunkin’ Donuts’ Iced Coffee K-Cup® packs are available through August at participating Dunkin’ Donuts as well!

So prepare your sweet tooth...and apparently your entire pallet and set your gps for your local Duncan Donuts! After all, America Runs on Duncan!


Flemming's Prime Steakhouse Recipe!

DISH got the best email today from one of the owners of Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar on Alabama, across from Whole Foods. They are proud to announce that they've recently added a Prime Beef Burger to its already famous "5 for 6 'til 7" Happy Hour menu. Every day - yes, that's right...7 days a week - all three Fleming's locations in the Houston area (River Oaks, Town & Country, The Woodlands) feature a $6 Prime Beef Burger, complete with two large, mouthwatering onion rings. If the price doesn't convince you to come in, try our recipe:

Fleming’s Prime Burger

Serves 4


32 oz Ground chuck 80/20 thawed
4 tsp salt and pepper blend
4 Knot egg rolls
8 Tbsp Butter, lightly salted room temperature
6 oz Cheese for burger
8 slices Bacon seasoned
8 leaves Iceberg lettuce
1 tomato sliced
Onion rings
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black pepper, café grind
Smoked jalapeno aioli (recipe below)

1. With gloves on your hands squeeze the burger patty together so that
it's 1" tall x 4 1/2" wide. Season both sides of the burger with salt
and pepper blend. Sear for 2 1/2 minutes on each side.
Place the burger on a metal pan and place under the broiler to cook
to the desired temperature. Allow the burger to rest for 1 minute.
2. Split the roll horizontally then spread room temperature butter on
the top & bottom of the bun and place on the flat top to toast.
3. Set the cheese on the burger and place under the broiler for 14 - 16
seconds to just melt the cheese. Place cooked bacon strips in criss
cross pattern on top of the cheese.
4. Cut the tomato 1/4" thick and add with lettuce.
5. Cook the onion rings in a 375° fryer to golden brown 2-3 minutes.
Place on a paper towel then lightly season with salt and pepper.
Serve with the smoked jalapeno aioli,

Temperature cook times
Rare : sear 2 1/2 minutes on each side
Medium Rare: sear 2 1/2 minutes each side and 1 minute under broiler
Medium: sear 2 1/2 minutes on each side and 2 1/2 minutes under broiler
Medium Well: sear 2 1/2 minutes on each side and 3 minutes under the broiler
Well Done: sear 3 minutes on each side and 3 1/2 minutes under the broiler

Bacon Seasoning
1. Combine the ahi spice and sugar in a mixing bowl and mix well.
Lay the bacon on a paper lined sheet pan and sprinkle 1/4 tsp. on
top of each piece. Bake in a 350° double convection oven set on
high fan for 8-10 minutes until crisp.
2. Place on paper towels to absorb any excess fat.

• 2 oz. chipotle puree
• 1 Tbl. fresh lime juice
• 1.5 cups mayonnaise
• Kosher salt to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk.
