Noodles & Company
Being in one of the restaurant capitals of the world, Aaron also saw a lot of niche restaurants-Italian, American, Chinese-but that required everyone to be in the mood for the same thing. So he asked himself another question, Why not offer all of these great flavors under one roof? But there was something missing. There had to be an anchor, something that would tie the concept together. Enter the noodle. Noodles and pasta are part of almost every cuisine-from Pad Thai in Thailand to Lo Mein in China to Mac & Cheese in Wisconsin. Fast forward to 1995 and that's what he did. What started as a single restaurant in the Cherry Creek neighborhood of Denver, Colorado has now grown to hundreds of restaurants nationwide. And along the way we've expanded the & Company part of the menu by adding soups, salads and sandwiches.
Had to give up on this place. The food is way too expensive to tolerate an environment of college-age employees with no manager around, while they have the music cranked up, messy tables, putting their hands all over each other, being snotty to customers, some of them looked like they hadn't bathed in ages. The food is pretty tasty, I wish I could say its healthy but some of the dishes seem pretty salty or have cream sauce. But the good taste is no match for the high price and poor service/environment.
