$$$$Perfect For:BrunchCasual Weeknight Dinner

Included In

If you find yourself in Fort Greene on a Monday, and you want to catch up with an old friend for at least an hour before ordering fried halloumi and many dips, there is Olea. Or maybe it’s a Sunday, and you want to get some brunch outdoors in the gym shorts that double as your pajamas. That’s what Olea is for. It’s a neighborhood Mediterranean spot, it’s about as casual as someone’s living room, and it’s a good place to eat hummus and labneh—or a whole branzino—with your parents, a friend, or even your friend's parents.
