Olivar, the Spanish word for “olive grove”, is the theme of this cozy new spot reminiscent of a quaint bistro that one would discover while exploring France and Spain.

Olivar combines Chef Philippe Thomelin’s deep roots from growing up in the Loire Valley of France, the influence of his Catalan grandmother and his love of all things Spanish. Chef Philippe creates dishes that reflect his philosophy of using the freshest, most seasonal seafood, meat and produce, using organic ingredients whenever possible.

For the Grand Opening, a special prix fixe menu will be available as well as an assortment of small plates and a complimentary tasting plate for each party of guests.

Olivar is located at 806 E. Roy St. in the Loveless building on Capitol Hill. Olivar will be open for dinner nightly except Monday, from 5:00 pm-10:30 pm, Friday and Saturday, 5:00 pm -11:00 pm (subject to change). For reservations, call (206) 322-0409.
