5 Times Square, Manhattan, NYC
November 14, 2013
Since my brother and I were checking out the Lego exhibit over at the Discovery Center in Times Square we decided to just take it back to our childhood days and get our feast on at Red Lobster.
I was a bit worried about the wait, but the place is huge and we were seated right away. Our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and we ordered EVERYTHING in all its junk foodie goodness. The biscuits were on point as usual and we ordered a couple of skinny Long Island Iced Teas to start. For our appetizer we had the platter with the coconut shrimp, stuffed mushrooms and shrimp cocktail. I am a huge fan of coconut shrimp and these had a nice sweetness to them and my brother is always down for some shrimp cocktail. The stuffed mushrooms were also good, but yeah you can tell how unhealthy everything is with each bite.
For our entrees we got the platter with the shrimp alfredo, shrimp scampi and fried shrimp. I got a side salad with thousand island dressing (hey if I am gonna be bad, I am gonna be bad all the way!) They were a bit too generous on the dressing but I will take any fresh veggies in this meal that I could get! The platter was tasty but, I ended up bringing most of it home since I was so stuffed. It actually all reheated quite nicely the next day. I was super full but my brother wanted to get dessert so we shared the molten choc chip cake with the ice cream and it was a nice end to an extremely gluttonous meal!
Service was friendly, prices in Times Square are to be expected and we had enough food for two meals. Sure this won’t be on rotation that often, but sometimes you just are craving some junky seafood and this is the place to go!
