Hard Rock Cafe Tampa to Debut New Menu On Hard Rock’s Founders’ Day

Hard Rock Cafe in Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa will debut a new menu on Friday, June 14, to help commemorate Hard Rock’s Founders’ Day.

The first Hard Rock Cafe at Old Park Lane in London opened on June 14, 1971 with a mission to serve the best burgers and milkshakes around the world.

More than 20 new items will be offered with the spotlight falling on its lineup of award-winning Steak Burgers, headlined by the world’s first edible 24-karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™.

The 24-karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ is a half-pound fresh Steak Burger topped with a 24-Karat edible gold leaf with Tillamook cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and red onion. Through the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, a portion of all proceeds from the 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ will benefit Action Against Hunger to assist in the fight against world hunger.

Other Steak Burger features will include The Original Legendary® Burger, The Big Cheeseburger, Double Decker Double Cheeseburger and the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger.

In addition to delicious steak burgers, guests will be able to enjoy Hard Rock Cafe’s new Boozy Milkshakes.

“Our goal is to bring the highest quality food, drink and entertainment to our guests each time they visit,” said Dawn Lazo, Vice President, Food & Beverage. “We are excited to introduce our award-winning Steak Burgers, including our impressive and indulgent 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™, as part of our world-class, immersive dining and entertainment experience.”

To further celebrate its 48th birthday on June 14, Hard Rock Cafe Tampa will stage a 70’s themed party featuring the band Reverend Barry & Funktastic Soul, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Guests are encouraged to wear disco era clothes and join in the festivities.
