We went to lunch today for a co-worker's birthday, and her choice was the Macaroni Grill.
This place has a great casual ambiance and darn good food. I usually get either the Scallopine de Pollo or the Penne Rustica, two of my all time favorites. The Scallopine has perfectly cooked chicken tenders in a lemony-buttery-capery sauce, served with cappellini pasta.
The Penne Rustica is a hearty combination of penne pasta, chicken, shrimp and veggies in a parmesean cheese and rosemary sauce. It's baked until the top is crispy and delicious.
Of course the foccacia bread and olive oil for dipping are fabu.
For lunch or dinner, Macaroni Grill is great casual Italian food! Check them out here: http://www.macaronigrill.com/Home/Default.aspx
