The Mall at Bay Plaza is mere weeks away from opening and the excitement is growing every second. As the first enclosed mall in the NYC area in nearly 40 years, Bronx residents are keeping their eyes peeled for the list of retailers and restaurants joining the pack.
All that shopping really revs up the appetite though, but fortunately there are plenty of delicious eateries to keep you running all day long. Joining the food court this month is a fan-favorite: Olive Garden, the famous Italian-American restaurant chain that is favored all over the nation.
Known for its unlimited breadsticks and salad and the slogan “When you’re here, you’re family”, Olive Garden has earned a reputation as a family-friendly, laidback destination for affordable, Italian food. The first restaurant of its kind opened way back in 1982, and just seven years later there were 145 Olive Gardens in the country. With that rate of success it’s no shock that the company grew to become the largest chain of Italian restaurants in the United States. As of last March, Olive Garden operates over 800 restaurants around the world, with a significant number of restaurants in various parts of Canada.
For all the Olive Garden lovers and detractors alike, you can’t go wrong at the Mall at Bay Plaza food court.
