Destiny Lands Bennigan's Starring Role in New Movie, 'About Fate'Dallas, TX  (RestaurantNews.com)  For many of its raving fans, Bennigan’s is the ideal spot to unwind with a good friend or even relive past date nights with your significant other. The new movie ‘About Fate’ proves that the iconic restaurant brand is still the perfect place to have fun and, just maybe, find your one true love.

Starring Emma Roberts, Lewis Tan, Madelaine Petsch, and Thomas Mann, the romantic comedy revolves around an improbable love story that kicks off at – you guessed it – Bennigan’s! The American Legend embraces its role as a big-screen co-star throughout the film, with several key scenes and character moments set inside the restaurant.

Signature Bennigan’s favorites like the Turkey ‘O Toole™ sandwich, Death by Chocolate™ dessert and Peach on the Beach drink are also showcased, with plenty of humor thrown in. After all, if you’re going to have a drink thrown in your face, it might as well be one as delicious as a Peach on the Beach!

“At Bennigan’s, we’re all about what I call ‘new-stalgia’ – which is a mix of fond memories, shared experiences and legendary food delivered with a friendly smile and warm hospitality, like it used to be,” said Chairman and Legendary Restaurant Brands CEO Paul Mangiamele. “Bennigan’s is in an exciting regenerative moment, and we are so thrilled to be featured in a movie as fun and heart-warming as ‘About Fate,’ which delivers on those same memorable experiences that have always defined our brand. It’s rare when you can play a big role in a film without speaking a line, but then again, we believe our food, drinks and service have always spoken for themselves!”

Bennigan’s invites everyone to go see ‘About Fate’ when it premiers in-theater Sept. 9, then come back to the restaurant to find your own true love – even if it turns out to be a World Famous Monte Cristo!
