Bread & Olive inherited its narrow, brightly-tiled premises and menu from the previous occupant, Bread From Beirut; quality remains high and flavors fresh in meze like lemony hummus, smoky babaghanouj, stuffed grape leaves, and zesty tabouleh. And there is still bread from Beirut baked on premises—most notably, keshik, a puffy flatbread dusted with dried goat cheese, crushed wheat, and sesame seeds, and rolled up, upon request, around yogurt as dense as cream cheese; plus the best chicken shawarma in town.Recommended Dishes
