    Olive Garden Opens SOON

    https://english.24ora.com/2022/06/17...edium=facebook

    Opens next week.
    I know numerous Aruba residents that love the OG.
    We have had visitors come to us in FLA and in MA and when asked where they'd like to go for dinner OG often was requested.

    I do love their salads.
    Then again I like most salads as long as someone else preps it!

    Realistically.........I wonder if it will fly?

    Seriously. OG vs Terrazzana? OG vs Zucchini? OG vs Casa Nona?

    When my troops arrive next week I can hear the boys now asking "Olive Garden.....Oh PLEASE can we go?"
    For them it is the gnocchi soup and incredibly salty breadsticks.

    I hope that it does well in a very tough market.
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? sidtm

    Olive Garden has its fans. I would imagine it would do well.

    We loved to go to OG at home for lunch. We loved the soup, salad and breadstick option. Loved the salad dressing which we buy in the grocery store. My soup was the gnocchi while Bob liked the pasta fagioli. Since Covid we haven’t been back. I agree Andrea, with some many good Italian restaurants I wonder how they will do.

    Their breadsticks used to have a lot of garlic(like 30 years ago). Our youngest was a baby-just the age you start giving them things like bread sticks. He'd lick all the garlic off and then hand it back to me and point to another one.

    15 years ago or so it was in our regular rotation for places to dine. Breadsticks, endless salad etc.... we really enjoyed it for a few years. Now we would be hard pressed to go into one...and NEVER in Aruba, lol. That said I hope it does well.

    I hope the Arubans and the local folks enjoy it.
    I will never say never….. I frequent American brands and franchises here often.
    I am sure my grandsons will want to go if they see the sign.

    Many Arubans love the OG

    As I said, when we have had Aruba houseguests they ALL want to go!
    I hope it does well.
