Mezzethes (Small Plates)
Black Olive’s Famous Bread
Get started with fresh, organic sourdough bread that’s baked daily. Rather than bake it, we grill our bread to perfection. You can enjoy our break with butter or an olive oil and herb mix.
Stuffed Calamari on the Grill
Rich with vitamins and protein, calamari is a popular Mediterranean dish. Instead of your traditional breaded and fried calamari, we stuff ours with Manouri and feta cheese and grill it. This makes for a much more heart-healthy dish.
Greek Village Salad
Taste a true part of Greece with our Greek village salad. You can get your meal started with a traditional combination of tomatoes and feta cheese with cucumber, bell peppers, red onion, and Kalamata black olives.
Get a piece of Greece with soup made from the legendary scorpionfish. This soup is flavored with saffron and served with select portions of wild rockfish. We know you’ll love the distinctive flavor that comes from this soup.
Black Olive Lobster Pasta
Our Black Olive lobster pasta brings a load of Mediterranean flavor into a single dish. A dish of fresh pasta is tossed with white wine, tomato, and tarragon-based sauce that’s finished with a splash of cream. The whole thing is topped off with a Maine lobster tail.
Greek Style Lamb Chops
Greece is known for its lamb. Enjoy this special dish that’s cooked in Greek style so you get the rich flavor of the Mediterranean.
Whole Mediterranean Sea Bass
Lavraki, Bronzini, or Loup de Mare, but you can call it sea bass. This fish feeds on shrimp, which you’ll find comes through in its taste. We know you’ll love our grilled sea bass with its flaky but firm texture due to its low oil content.
Wester Ross Salmon
While it’s not uniquely Greek, our grilled salmon is delicious. We source our Wester Ross Salmon from the oldest independent fishery in Scotland, so you know that you’re getting the full flavor from hand-raised salmon.
Finish off your meal with delicious baklava. This layered pastry is filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with honey.
Our tiramisu is another excellent dessert choice. Inspired by Italian coffee flavors, tiramisu is a combination of ladyfingers that are dipped in coffee then held together with layers of whipped eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese. It’s all topped off with a layer of powdery cocoa.
