For the first time in 3 years, Panera Bread is bringing back two customer-favorite, seasonal menu items: the Lobster Roll and Lobster Mac & Cheese

Just in time to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, the following two items will be available at nearly 200 Panera cafés in the Northeastern United States starting Wednesday, May 25:

  • The Lobster Mac & Cheese features Panera’s Vermont White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese topped with buttered claw & knuckle lobster meat and seasoned Panko bread crumbs (Pricing: Varies by location from $22.99-$25.99 for the Lobster Roll alone or $20.49-$23.49 as a You Pick 2)
  • The Lobster Roll features lobster claw and knuckle meat, tossed in a lemon tarragon mayonnaise-based dressing, piled high into a New England Roll (Pricing: Varies by location from $9.99-$10.99 for small; $18.49-$19.99 for large)

“At Panera, we change our menu regularly to bring in the flavors of the seasons and we’re thrilled to offer our East Coast guests two outstanding Lobster entrees for the summer,” says Panera’s head chef and chief innovation officer, Claes Petersson. “Pairing juicy, delicious lobster with our iconic mac & cheese is truly The Familiar, Made Fantastic – and it’s a bold flavor sensation we think our guests will wish could be on the menu all year round.”
