Needed to stay for a night on our way back to CT and so glad we stayed near this one of a kind restaurant. Don't let the location in a strip mall deter you, the food is spectacular. The owner opened a little over a year ago and has had rave reviews both locally and from out of staters such as we were.
First you get these black olives that are so flavorfull along with warm fresh baked bread that is meant to be dipped in the fresh olive oil on the table. Try not to fill up on the bread because the main couse selections are many and diversified.
I asked the owner, who also happened to be our waiter that evening because we came in at almost closing time, what their specialty is. He said everything is good but recommended the Moussaka and lamb tagine,
So my husband had the best Moussaka I've ever tasted and I had the lamb tagine that was to die for. It was hot and the flavors were so tasty. We also had the opportunity to talk to the owner and find out his history and passion about the restaurant and using only fresh ingredients. He and his wife are equal partners with him as the chef and she the marketing person and restaurant decorator.
He even let us try the delicious mint tea that us served in a beautiful silver pot with exquisite little glass and silver cups.
We will never forget this experience and hope we are able to revisit The Olive Tree Cafe again in the future.
