Greek, Spanish, Italian...It doesn't matter. I'm just looking for a delicious, fruity extra-virgin olive oil..preferably available at supermarkets or ethnic stores. Thanks!

  1. go to Greek House Foods
    32-22 30th Avenue
    in Astoria

    great selection of oliveoil and they'll help you get what you want!

    1. I love the house brand olive oil from Buon Italia in Chelsea Market. It's the type that tastes like olives, if that's what you mean by fruity. It's very reasonably priced, too.

      1. I have a relative who grew up in NYC, spent her 30's in Italy moved back to NY for 10 years and know lives in the Carolina's.

        Whenever I go visit she asks for the house brand at Fairway.

        I like it too.

        1. Asaro brothers of Brooklyn. The have a shop in in Bushwick Brooklyn. They supply alot of Italian stores in Middle Village Queens. Very good and cheap. They have been in the olive oil and chesse biz for over 75 years.

          1. Don't laugh, but the Kirkland Brand of Olive Oil at Costco is EXCELLENT--green and fruity.......I've tried many, especially Greek olive oils, and lots of expensive Italian ones...but, this one's great, and it's a great price! It was rated one of the best, and I was skeptical to try it, but glad I did......
