Local Mom Scoop and Garlic and Zest were invited to dine and taste the wonderful appetizers and entrees from Oliv Pit latest menu. They even had a little afternoon nip for digestion. I’m not complaining.
Fava, Tzatziki, and Paprika Spreads
The Trio spreads were delicious which included: Fava, Tzatziki, and Paprika. The FAVA spread featured Santorini split peas, lemon, kalamata Olive Oil, and sea salt. A nice change from hummus.
The PAPRIKA SPREAD had pureed Roasted Red Peppers, Red Wine Vinegar,
and Herbs. This tangy spread went well with the naan bread and the short rib below.
My favorite dip was the TZATZIKI. It was made with real Greek Yogurt, Cucumber, Garlic, Dill with Kalamata Olive Oil. I could have eaten the entire bowl.
CRISPY FRIED FETA
Need I say anything?
If you are afraid to try Octopus, don’t be. The GRILLED OCTOPUS was like a steak melting in your mouth. It was wood grilled and garnished with parsley, capers & a preserved lemon vinaigrette. You have to order this when you go to the Oliv Pit.
BRAISED SHORT RIB
Enough for 2, this tender braised beef was outstanding. A side garnish of cherry tomatoes and broccolini were the perfect side drizzled with Olive oil, garlic Confit
Is your favorite part of the meal usually dessert? This thin pastry with nuts and honey was a special treat.
From the sap of a tree specifically grown in Greece and wonderful for digestion.
