We tried the ultimate New York Power Lunch: Olive Garden Times Square

After accepting an invitation to enjoy the Never Ending Pasta Bowl, amNewYork was ready to dive into the Olive Garden Times Square experience.

On the upper level of Olive Garden Times Square (which currently has a lovely view of construction, crowds and police horses) on a busy Wednesday afternoon, the pre-matinee crowd sipped chocolate martinis and fruit-topped cocktails, Many seemed to be from out of town. Our server informed us that Morgan Stanley employees often came in from across the street for a quick, efficient lunch. Power Lunch was on.

In case you were unaware, Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl offers more than 20 different choices of pastas, sauces and toppings and will keep (Magically! By your server!) refilling itself until you can’t possible gorge on any more carbs.
