Black Olive Restaurant

Here’s a Public Service Announcement of sorts for all you lovely readers that reside in Philadelphia, particularly in the Mt. Airy neighborhood.  The restaurant, Black Olive, is officially open for business.  This mid-range eatery is an extension of the already operating Black Olive delicatessen.  The restaurant is all vegan with most items on the menu having a southern flare (Taylor, you’d best come be the final judge on how tasty this all is). 

I attended their grand opening soiree Friday evening where they were serving a smattering of their dishes as lite party fare, including vegan crab cakes and African peanut soup (both scrumptious).  I was most taken with the chocolate pie though.  Silky creamy and chocolately…and vegan to boot!

Their website doesn’t appear to be up and running just yet (  Their phone number is 215.247.5100.  The restaurant is located just off Germantown Avenue on E. Mt. Airy Avenue in the heart of bustling quirky Mt. Airy (oh beloved ‘hood o’ mine).

I’ll be going for a full dinner some evening soon and will report back.  In the meantime, give this new business some of your business to show support for local eclectic dining options.
