Olio Restaurant Review

: The wine and spirits lists offer international breadth and depth, and the seasonal cocktail program draws in regulars seeking whatever new pleasures the bartenders have in store. Together, they make Olio, situated in a former gas station, both a neighborhood hangout and a destination for curious foodies. Cured meats, pickled vegetables and fruit preserves are a lead-in to unconventional wine-pairing small plates like Moroccan carrot salad with harissa. Ask about the daily rotisserie special and, for dessert, opt for the Key lime pie-in-a-jar if it’s available. Sunday brunch features an eclectic array, from scrambled eggs with pork belly to crispy sweetbreads with a waffle and poached egg. Some prefer Olio’s casual vibe to its upscale sister restaurant, Elaia, with which it shares key staff members, including chef/proprietor Ben Poremba.
