Marbella, Spain -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/07/2012 -- Significant and historic, Route 66 has been colloquially called America's Main Street and the Mother Road. The 2,200-mile pavement was known for linking Illinois to California: the road leading to opportunity and freedom – virtues that defined an entire culture. Thousands followed this asphalt ribbon from Chicago to the Pacific, bringing with them the hope of a new beginning.
During the 1950s, for the first time since the close of the World Wars, folks took to the open Route 66 road. Food was an integral part of those journeys that marked the nation's introduction to roadside diners.
In the tradition of the open road, Route 66 Marbella is a new diner located in Marbella, Spain that in itself is reflective of the rich history that symbolizes Route 66. The official launch Route 66 Marbella party is happening on Thursday, June 7th, as America's most infamous highway leads all the way to Southern Spain!
“We are expecting a lot of famous celebrities to attend the launch Party! It will be the place to be in Puerto Banus for sure. Especially if you are a Football fan..[wink wink]. In fact, the Spanish chapter of the Harley Davidson Route 66 Bikers who meet up here at Route66 Marbella often are actually now cruising along the Route66 Highway in the United States,” said Patrick Deane of Route 66 Marbella.
Detailed at Route66Marbella.com, the new Route 66 restaurant serves sumptuous English breakfasts, lovely lunches and delicious dinners in Marbella. The diner is very popular with the mums and dads, as it offers the best kids’ menu in Puerto Banus. It is fast becoming known as the best family friendly restaurant in the area.
A gastronomic adventure, Route66Marbella.com is also popular with the Spanish locals who dine in the restaurant every night, and bring more of the wonderful friends and family each week. The numbers are doubling which is a great compliment and testimony, including from a visit from the England Footbal player Peter Crouch and his beautiful wife Abbey Clancy on the first week end and also recently his fellow team mate for England and Liverpool Legend, Glen Johnson who tweeted "just had the t-bone steak...definitely recommend it!!" to his over half a million followers.
