Columbia’s Olive Garden restaurant at 274 Harbison Blvd. has completed its remodeling and donated its old furnishings to a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore outlet.
Nonprofit ReStore donation centers sell new and used furniture, appliances, accessories and building materials at discounted prices. Proceeds from the sales help support the Habitat for Humanity home-building program.
The restaurant, built in 1990, received updated seating, flooring, lighting and artwork. The renovations also include a colorful bar with mobile charging stations and a wine-pouring station featuring more than 60 varieties of vino.
“My team and I are eager to share our new restaurant design with our guests in Columbia,” general manager Mac Watson said in a news release. “The updated décor continues to provide an inviting dining experience while incorporating a more modern feel.”
The menu has also been revamped and includes a Tastes of the Mediterranean section with entrees under 600 calories. Guests can also create their own lunch combinations with the Lunch Duos feature.
