Edward Geick, general manager of the Olive Garden in Warwick, has been presented with Darden Restaurants’ top honor – the Joe R. Lee Diamond Club Award, named after the company’s first chairman and CEO.

Through Edward’s leadership, the Warwick Olive Garden is a superior-performing restaurant, where we treat our guests like family and consistently deliver a delicious Italian meal at a great value.”
