Last night, a gaggle of friends and I converged on Fort Greene resto Olea to drink, dine, and have a good time. Thanks to the innumerable vodka tonics I’d been sipping on, I have no recollection of what time I left.
I do, however, recall the delicious tapas we indulged in, especially the sangria marinated hanger steak. I’m talking four to six pieces of grilled-to-perfection meat topped with sherry vinegar-picked red onions, extra virgin olive oil, and parsley. Nomtastic! Kudos to the kitchen staff.
Speaking of sangria, here are the two massive containers that sat in front of me at the bar the entire evening. I’m not a big sangria person, but the batches made at Olea are usually on-point.
I can’t say enough good things about Olea. It’s one of my favorite spots. Everything on the menu is delicious, the staff are friendly, and the vibe is great. If you’re in Fort Greene, be sure to pay them a visit.
