No breadsticks at Olive Garden’s $400 New Year’s Eve Time Square party

NEW YORK, N.Y. (WCMH)– For $400 you get five hours of a full buffet, a DJ, open bars and a toast at midnight at the Olive Garden’s New Year’s Eve party in Times Square; however, it doesn’t include breadsticks.

According to CNN Money, Olive Garden is one of several restaurants selling tickets for New Year’s Eve in Times Square. Chicken con broccoli, eggplant parm, shrimp primavera and other entrees are on the menu, but the restaurant’s famous breadsticks aren’t being made available.

Michael Garver, a manager at the Olive Garden on 47th Street and Broadway told the New York Post that watching the ball drop won’t be easy from the eatery. “It’s a limited view,” said Garver.

Other restaurants hosting parties in Times Square include Bubba Gump Shrimp, Ruby Tuesday and Buca di Beppo. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
