T.G.I. Friday’s West Nyack

Tgi_fridays_mac_and_cheese I was bummed that we didn’t get to eat at Cheesecake Factory during my Palisades Center excursion but we couldn’t risk the hour wait because the last bus back to the Tarrytown train station left at 9:45pm. I would hate getting stranded in the middle of nowhere just because I had to have a Tex Mex Eggroll. T.G.I. Friday’s only had a five minute wait, which was about all I could stand for anyway.

I was secretly happy to try T.G.I. Friday’s because I’d just been talking about their new appetizers. If it was solely up to me I would’ve gone for the battered, fried green beans. But when dining with companions that aren’t your boyfriend you have to be more accommodating. If you’ve been with someone for seven years it’s ok to fuss about things that don’t matter, but if friends and acquaintances want to eat fried macaroni and cheese (I know, I’m the only person alive who’s lukewarm on mac and cheese) it’s no great shakes. Tgi_fridays_quesadillaI’ll try anything fried. I just noticed that Cheesecake Factory does a similar item but served with creamy marina. Why is the marina creamy, anyway? Don’t tell me it’s more cheese.

After a couple Ultimate Electric Lemonades and a Double-Stack Quesadilla, I was fortified for the bus, train, subway journey back to Brooklyn. I didn’t get home till midnight but all the cheese, sugar and grease kept me going.

    I don’t think the green beans actually exist… twice we’ve gone out to try them, but they’ve been “sold out”. Nobody likes green beans that much… Plus, I think the pomegranate margarita is a myth. It tasted like plain old margarita to me…

  2. hmm…very suspicious. I didn’t actually ask for the green beans because my party was into the mac and cheese, but I naively assumed it would be available if need be. Now I wish I had ordered them. I didn’t see anyone in the restaurant eating them, but like you said, people aren’t nuts for green beans.

    Exactly! I didn’t see anyone gobbling up green beans, either, which led me to hypothesize they don’t really have them. It’s not like there’s a green bean famine, or a natural disaster has wiped out their supply, a la Popeye’s Chicken (shrimp dishes) following Hurricane Katrina…

  4. We could have ordered them, but you didn’t say anything. Each appetizer was $4, and I was into getting 2 dishes, but nobody else seemed to be. I would have gladly ordered the green beans as well. I didn’t know you had a problem with the mac and cheese! You are a TGIF martyr :)

  5. I’m totally a TGI Friday’s martyr (and you thought you had the corner on the martyr market). I didn’t want to be a glutton and order two appetizers. There’s always a next time.
