Olive an Urban Dive in Dayton, OH

Hello. In downtown dayton ohio, a wonderful dive has emerged at an old Wympee Burger that was a hopping place in the pre war years. The restaurant now named the Olive, is nothing to look at on the outside----in fact, it still has the Wympee sign! The inside seats about 20 and is quaintly decorated w local art and a beautiful wood counter. Very much has a small diner feel. The food is awesome. The best tuna and white bean sandwich on local bread I've eaten. Chick pea crust artisan pizzas are great. The paleo platter w local beef yummy. Pretty much all the food is local and/or organic. I once said I'd never go in due to its look outside, but now one of my and my fiance's favorite spot....please consider doming to dayton ohio. If u do, there are some other spots that would work on your show. Thank youMark Marinella,MD, Dayton ohio

    Jacqueline S. Olive (an Urban Dive), is a locally sourced restaurant in downtown Dayton! Gluten-free, Vegan, Paleo & allergy friendly, they also serve great grass fed beef and burgers. Their motto is, "local over import, labor over convenience and service over everything else. We chase chickens, when we say free range....we mean it." Founded in July 2011, they serve the following food styles: American (New), Burgers, Cajun/Creole, French, Greek/Mediterranean, Italian, Moroccan, Pizza, Sandwiches, Seafood, Soul Food, Southern, Spanish/Basque, Turkish, Vegan, Vegetarian, Breakfast, Lunch/Brunch & Dinner. Located the old Wympee diner at the corner of Third and Wayne. The outside looks the same and even has the original signage built in 1938, while the inside is reminiscent of a Chicago bistro with a patio! They take reservations and walk-ins (but there are only 28 seats inside, so calling ahead is a great idea). They don't have diet sodas (you can bring your own) & have over 70 local farmers on speed dial, as well as their own garden, farm & bee hive added this year! 416 E. Third St, Dayton OH 45402 937-222-DIVE (3483) [email protected]
