Denny’s is jumping back into the hobbit hole with a themed menu for The Desolation of Smaug. They embraced the first installment of The Hobbit trilogy last year, and it was apparently successful enough to warrant another take. It looks about as unappetizing as last time though. They’ve brought back the Hobbit Hole Breakfast but also added Sweet Potato Pecan Pancakes, Smaug’s Fire Burger, Bowman’s Brew Pumpkin Coffee, Honey Cakes French Toast, and Bard’s Pumpkin Pie Milkshake. I mean, I can picture Thorin sitting down and slurping a milkshake, can’t you?
Though this is an okay gimmick, I desperately wish New Line would partner with a restaurant that could actually execute recipes from the book and movies. Sigh.
