I really liked Olivia, but sadly they closed in Fall 2016. The restaurant group that owns them turned it into one of their Lucy's Fried Chicken (Lucy's on the Fly) spots.

Went for Easter brunch and enjoyed their creative "eggy / breakfasty" dishes. They were fantastic! It makes you feel good that they have hens laying in the backyard although those chickens couldn't possibly meet the restaurants need for eggs -- nice touch, though! The food...More
