The wait is almost over. The new Olive Garden on Commercial Drive in New Hartford opens for lunch Monday, August 12th. If you want to avoid the early crowds hoping to be among the first to eat at the new restaurant, just use the curbside to go option. You can order anything off the menu and they'll even bring it out to your car! Greatest invention ever. Guess where most of our staff will be eating lunch from at LEAST once a week.
