Darden Restaurants (NYSE:DRI), the parent company of Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, and several other popular restaurant brands, recently sold its Red Lobster chain for $2.1 billion. However, despite the sale of one of the companies' major restaurant chains, activist investors still want Darden to do more.
