  •  No More Olive Garden for this Family (16+ / 0-)

    I always enjoyed an Olive Garden visit with family.  NO MORE, we have have found a new Italian restaurant in the Augusta ME area that fills our needs and treats its employees as human beings.

        or Slates, or any of several other great restaurants in downtown Hallowell.  Much tastier, and a great town to explore.

        Downtown on Water Street.  Java Joe's old location at the foot of Winthrop Street on Water Street.

          We live in Winthrop and while TJ's and Mia Lina's aren't bad, we find the best Italian food is to be found in our kitchen.

          (We aren't Italian but we grew up in northern NJ.)

          We've been looking for a great Italian place and will check it out.

          Plus, my company's holiday lunch has traditionally come from Olive Garden.  What can I say -- old habits die hard and they've done it that way for a long time, so my requests to consider another place were too little too late.

          Perhaps I'll have a better alternative when the subject arises next fall.  I was thinking of taking a break from this particular committee but I'll stay on for now.  

          Thanks for the heads-up!
