Olives NY
201 Park Avenue
212-353-8345


The Look: More spaces than a funhouse, sort of the Many Worlds of Todd (English) without the motorized boat.
The Crowd: Same crowd as at Aleutia, across the street, with an injection of testosterone: sleek, confident, and pleased with themselves.
The Appeal: All of Todd English's places have energy and shameless bravado. It's why critics always try to knock him down to size.
The Meal: Octopus with chickpeas, herb-and-garlic-roasted chicken, oven-roasted pineapple with lime sorbet.
The Mistake: Trying to have an intimate conversation in the upholstered lounge. Toga! Toga!
