The olive tree presents us with two gifts. First, we have the olive itself, with its chewy texture and robust flavor and then second, the invaluable oil pressed from the fruit featuring bitter, pungent or peppery flavor profiles! This elegant menu will use a number of varietals to highlight the briny and sometimes smoky taste of the olive and will be served with Dirty Martinis and Millionaire Mules.
