Olive & Thyme Restaurant Review

: For those who like this café’s breezy style and array of salads and sandwiches, Olive & Thyme’s move a couple of blocks down the street to larger digs is cause for ordering a glass of Prosecco to salute its growth. Here, it has upped its game, offering the old favorites and some new dishes. Begin dinner with pork rillettes and slices of grilled French bread, and carry the pork theme to the entrée of cavatelli with sugar snap peas, pancetta and mint. Finish with cherry almond pie, made with tart cherries to tame the sweet almondy layer between the fruit and the crust. Seasonal offerings on the dinner menu keep things fresh and interesting, and servers are knowledgeable and friendly. Then consider what you might carry home from the collection of prepared foods, cheeses, charcuterie and sweets. This location features a wine bar and an expanded selection of gourmet goodies. Sit inside and enjoy the café vibe at either an intimate table or at a larger, communal one, or out on the sidewalk to take in the bustle of Riverside Drive.
