Looking for the name of a Philly restaurant. I think it was called Olives.
I visited Philadelphia about 5 years ago and a friend and I found this really great restaurant and I think it was called Olive or Olives. I'm going to be re-visiting the city and would like to go back, but I can't seem to find anything on the net about it. We had a great breakfast there. I'm not sure what neighborhood it was in, but it had a giant olive on the roof. Can locals confirm this for me? Is it still there? What is the actual name? What neighborhood is it in? Thanks :)
One of them (the one in Old City) has a giant olive out front., right over the edge of the roof. Looks ridiculous, in my opinion, but it's definitely memorable.
I'm with you on the OP's Olive/Olives name not ringing a bell, though. Think you got the Continental connection right. It's the only [Philly proper] place I can think of that was open 5 yrs ago and has the giant olive on the roof.
