For thousands of years, families across the globe have enjoyed pasta in varying forms. There’s a good reason for this: noodles are very yummy. Who wouldn’t love a restaurant based on them? That’s why Long Island Mamas Network was excited to visit the new Noodles & Company restaurant that opened recently in Garden City.
A growing national restaurant chain, Noodles and Company’s Garden City site is currently the only location in New York. However they plan to expand to over 20 restaurants throughout Long Island. The company has hired approximately 60 local team members to staff its new location and plans on adding hundreds of new jobs at other locations across Long Island in the coming years.
The Garden City restaurant is located just off the Meadowbrook Parkway on Old Country Road in the new Gallery at Westbury Plaza. It’s a great place to recharge after a long day of shopping or to pick up take-out after work. It offers quick and convenient food with high quality. Patrons order at a counter, but restaurant staff delivers orders to customers’ tables. Drinks are self-serve. Pricing is very reasonable.
The menu features several varieties of everyone’s favorite noodles. Soups, salads, and sandwiches are also offered. Italian, American, and Asian-inspired dishes abound. Favorite dishes include the sweet and spicy Japanese Pan Noodles, savory chicken lettuce wraps, creamy Penne Rosa, zesty Pesto Cavatappi, and rich Wisconsin Mac & Cheese. Desserts, bottled beverages, beer and wine selections from around the world are also offered. Yet what makes the menu unique is the ability to customize around specific dietary needs as all dishes are fresh and made to order.
Gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, low sodium, low fat, and low calorie selections are available, and each category has several options. Meals come in a two sizes. Picky eaters will love the ability to order without specific components, though families dealing with allergies should still be concerned about cross-contact between foods.
If patrons prefer their meal to go, it’s no problem. Place an order online and it’ll be ready for pickup quickly. Seating seemed abundant but still may be a challenge during prime hours. Parking is ample. Like with all new restaurant initially there were some minor service kinks to work out, but overall Noodles and Company was a great for a quick, family-friendly lunch or dinner. Bon Appetite!
