Several exciting new changes are in store as this downtown-based olive oil and wine bar celebrates its first year of business. Read on for all the tasty details.
We Olive & Wine Bar is celebrating its first year of business in savory style.
They’re first, of course, celebrating with food as they launch a new and improved menu. Tasty changes include new cheeses and charcuterie items, as well as a new roasted tomato and basil dip. The new menu will arrive in the coming weeks. They also plan to offer a wine tasting with Hanna Winery, live music, a cocktails class, and more.
Starting June 5, We Olive will participate in Negroni Week. We Olive will also provide many ongoing programs: Live music on Fridays from 7 to 9 p.m.; Sample Saturdays; on Wednesdays, half-price bottles of wine in-house all day, and live music on the patio from 6 to 8 p.m.; $7 off bottles of rosé, all day, on Thursdays this summer; and the Last Thursdays Dinner Series, four-course tasting menu with wine pairings on the last Thursday of every month.
We Olive bills itself as not just a restaurant and wine bar but a “culinary experience,” says Leah Jones, who co-owns We Olive with her husband Cody. We Olive sells gourmet foods and specializes in certified extra virgin olive oil that guests can enjoy in Mediterranean-inspired dishes such as popular cheese and charcuterie plate, bites, salads, Panini, and flatbreads, as well as a “thoughtfully curated list of domestic, boutique-style wines,” Leah says. “As staples of the Mediterranean diet, olive oil and wine are coupling that is traced back into the B.C. era, the true tale as old as time.”
Not only can guests enjoy delicious foods and wines at We Olive, but they can “enjoy a guided olive oil tasting with our knowledgeable staff” and “learn about new techniques and recipes,” Leah explains. Guests can buy their favorite products and take them home to replicate We Olive’s recipes.
“Our mission with this menu is to showcase healthy and delicious dishes that our guest can enjoy time and time again with a few outstanding ingredients and simple preparation at home,” Leah adds. Guests can return to We Olive and refill their bottles of any bulk olive oil or balsamic. “Our mission is to make healthy, delicious food accessible to all and to be an inspiration for all skill levels to incorporate high quality olive oil into your favorite recipes so you can feel good about what you eat!”
We Olive & Wine Bar was founded in Paso Robles in 2003, “inspired by a passion for locally sourced, healthy, delicious, artisan extra virgin olive oil,” Leah says, adding that We Olive seeks to increase awareness of delicious, healthful benefits of olive oil and support the domestic olive oil industry.
Cody and Leah Jones, longtime residents, love Cincinnati as much as they do food and wine and wanted to “bring a unique concept to the downtown area that would provide an experience unlike anything else currently offered.”
