Pretty sure most of you have seen Olive Garden around the States even in nearby Seattle. Well I finally decided to try it on our trip to New York and we had it in Times Square. The wait was extremely long even though it was already really late, but I guess that’s just how busy Times Square is! The food was delicious and the environment was very pleasant. I wouldn’t mind going again, probably in Seattle where the wait would be shorter!

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in New York

Steamed Mussels in Wine, Butter, and Garlic

Bubba’s Far Out Dip – Spinach, Roasted Red Peppers, Artichokes and Monterey Jack Cheese with homemade Tortilla

Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi – Charbroiled Cajun spiced Mahi Mahi with Bourbon Sauce and grilled Shrimp, served over Mashed Potatoes

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is all over the States. This one was at Times Square, New York. Definately friendly and great service. They have signs that say “Go Forrest Go” and “Stop Forrest Stop”, which lets the servers know if you need any help. Funky environment and a great restaurant for the family. Food was also delicious. The seafood was extremely fresh and I would say the Mahi Mahi was one of the best I’ve had. The artichoke dip was also really good. Yum!
