The Keto diet is taking the world by storm. But so far, not many eateries offer menus that accommodate this new craze. However, iPic Entertainment is paving the way with a menu that is both Keto-friendly and delicious. In fact, they are the first movie chain to introduce a Keto menu available nationally for in-theater dining. The Fort Lee iPic Theater, in particular, has a new menu including seasonal items as well as unique Keto options.
For those who don’t know, the Keto diet is very similar to the Atkins diet. It focuses on foods that are low carb, low sugar, and high fat. (Which the body burns instead of focusing on carbs.) As you’ll see, this allows for a wide range of food options with few limitations. From appetizers to cocktails and even desserts, the “Guiltless Pleasures” Keto menu at iPic offers something for everyone.
How Keto Came to iPic
iPic Founder, President and CEO Hamid Hashemi took an interest in Keto from the start. But, given his sweet tooth, he found it hard to find desserts that were compatible with the diet. With this in mind, as a restaurateur himself, he came up with his own Keto brownies recipe. He then brought the brownies into the iPic office, much to the delight of his employees; after that, it wasn’t long before inspiration struck. The brownies were such a hit, Hashemi decided to implement an entire Keto-friendly menu into the iPic Theater experience.
The in-theater dining menu now includes Keto options such as Spicy Tuna Lettuce Cups as a light snack. For heavier meals, they offer Steak Skewers and Buttermilk Fried Chicken. As for cocktails, you can order the Anti-Rita (casamigos blanco, Keto simple syrup & lemonade sparkling ice soda); the Fresh-Keto (malibu rum, grapefruit juice & lemon juice); or the Strawberry-Basil Delight (Tito’s Vodka, basil, strawberries, kiwi sparkling ice soda). Finally, for dessert, their menu features Mini Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies, Keto Cheesecake + Berries and “Key-to-Lime” bars. You can click here to see the full Guiltless Pleasures menu.
