Olive Garden isn’t usually known for upscale fetes.

On New Year’s Eve, the home of the bottomless breadsticks is selling tickets to a party in its Times Square location for $350 a pop. The ticket gets guests access to a buffet and open bars, and the party will have a DJ with a light show.

But guests probably aren’t paying hundreds of dollars for the food: the Olive Garden restaurant is located in the bustle of the New Year’s Eve revelries in New York City, where around one million people turn out to watch the ball drop at midnight each year. An Olive Garden manager told The New York Post that the views of the ball from the restaurant are “limited.”

Restaurants in Times Square with a better view, like Bubba Gump Shrimp, are charging as much as $799 a person for the night, according to the Post.
