Press Release – Millennium “Good Form Dining” Menus

April 18, 2011

From a Millennium Restaurant Group press release….

Millennium Restaurant Group Locations to Feature “Good Form Dining” Menus

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Helping Kalamazoo gear up for the first ever Kalamazoo Marathon on May 8, 2011, the Chefs at Kalamazoo-based Millennium Restaurant Group have created special featured menus focused on the special nutrition runner’s need for endurance and strength. The special menus are available at the restaurants from April 13-May 7.

Each restaurant has a full featured menu with four-seven items, including:

Fieldstone Grill:

Seared Salmon served on a bed of coconut rice with cucumber mango salsa and a carrot ginger puree, topped with chili dusted wontons

Iron is important to distance runners, with a daily goal of 8mg-18mg intake (the salmon alone can account for up for 20% of your Daily Value). The coconut also serves as a great source of fiber (many runners use coconut water was an alternative to a sports drink).


Banana Wrapped Sea Bass fresh sea bass steamed in a banana leaf with fresh Italian vegetables, and served on a bed of steamed rice

Sea Bass is a great lean source of protein and iron (which delivers oxygen to cells, keeping runners from feeling fatigued). Rice is also a GREAT sourse of those highly sought-after carbs.

The Union:

Bison Burger char-grilled Bison burger on a cracked wheat bun topped with provolone, sautéed mushrooms, and red onions, served with sweet potato fries

Each serving of Bison contains more than 50% of your vitamin B12 needs & 30% of your needs for iron & zinc, necessary for muscle function and recovery. Mushrooms contain a rare antioxidant (L-ergothioneine) which fights off free-radical damage (great for post-run potassium)

Epic Bistro/Central City Tap House: menu starting Tuesday April 19

Otto’s Chicken served with black beans and wood-grilled vegetables

A 1-cup serving of black beans supplies over 25% of your Daily Value for protein, almost 60% of your fiber, and 20% for iron (which delivers oxygen to the cells, keeping runners from feeling fatigued). There’s also a great dose of carbs.

In addition to the featured “Good Form Dining” menus, each restaurant will offer runners of the Kalamazoo Marathon, Borgess Half Marathon, and Borgess 5K a special treat. The week following the race—May 9 through May 14—runners who bring in their race bib will receive 1% off their food for each mile they ran.

  • 26% off for full Marathoners
  • 13% off for half Marathoners
  • 5% off for 5k runners (the restaurants will count kilometers rather than miles for this specific race)

Good Form Dining will be offered from April 13 through May 7 for runners to fuel up leading up to the Kalamazoo Marathon weekend. For more information about “Good Form Dining” or Millennium Restaurant Group, please visit us online at
