Heralding a new $7.99 lunch, Red Lobster invited www.ParamusPost.com to partake of their varied selection. General Manager Jason Moyer met us at the door and had his Maitre D accompany us to our table. Our server, Candi, was very knowledgeable and, as were the entire staff at Red Lobster, accommodating. Giving us a little time to decide on the many delectables offered for $7.99, Candi brought over some tasty fresh hot corn muffins and a big glass of water for each. Each item looked so good, that Candi had to patiently wait, which she did!
After careful thought and those delicious muffins, we selected the Bar Harbor Salad with Salmon instead of the chicken, Wood Grilled Southwest Chicken Sandwich with coleslaw instead of the fries and the Grilled Shrimp Salad Sandwich with fries well done. Jason came over , after we ordered, and nodded approval at our selections. As a special treat, he sent over a platter of their Sweet Chili Shrimp appetizer. Spicy and hot it was, but just as tasty .. an epicurean delight. Jason Moyer, in one of his visits brought over Onaji Jackson, Restaurant Manager and Day Chef! They assured us that their fish is fresh and great care is taken from delivery from the supplier to delivery to the table.
A bit of history:
In the past 10 years, Red Lobster’s parent company, Darden Restaurants has donated more than 67 million pounds of food to community food banks across the country. In the NYC / Northern Jersey area alone, Red Lobster has donated more than 446,700 lbs. of food through this program – and 58,600+ lbs. in just the past year alone.
In Paramus, for example, the Red Lobster regularly “harvests” wholesome, unused food and donates it to St. Philip Ministries. Items such as fresh fish and other meats, soups and vegetables are donated regularly.
Red Lobster and Darden are community minded. To learn more access www.redlobster.com to see their history and to d/l recipes, if you like. One can also call 201 967 7835 for reservations and further information!
