Olive Garden Complaint - A depressing day in Kingston
My friend suggested the Olive Garden in Kingston for lunch and never having had the experience I went along with the suggestion. The restaurant looks like a Lionel train set version of a restaurant with
all the accessories that make it ' Family Dining' ( don't you just love that ? ) It is actually a cover up for its faults. The bread sticks that they are so proud of are so salty it makes your face itch. The salad was passable and the service friendly. When they came around with a bottle of Bordeaux cradled in the crook of the servers arm I nearly fell off my chair. I ordered a diet coke instead which was 7/8ths water from the Hudson River. The scallop and shrimp pasta was so salty a slimey as to make it inedible but a hostess did come by to ask..' how is it so far ? '
as if to imply something terrible is about to take place.. the bill came to the standard $45 which seems to be the luck number these days.
