The newest beachfront restaurant and bar is ready to hit the sand for its second season. Caffé Oliva, named for its location in Olive Park is tucked away on a beautiful part of the Chicago lakefront-allowing guests to take a "vacation” in their own backyard.
From the team behind The Dock at Montrose Beach, Caffé Oliva has revamped its menu and now offers Mediterranean inspired fare and playful cocktails.
Menu items include starters like lollipop wings, lamb meatballs and Mediterranean style grilled calamari. For lighter beach fare, Oliva offers salads including the Chop, Chop, Chop Med Salad (Finely chopped lettuce, tomato, red onion, chickpeas, pepperocini, kalamata olives, celery, feta, tzatziki dressing, EVOO, pita crumbles) and Lebanese Tabbouleh Chopped Salad (tomato, parsley, cucumber, green onions, mint, salt, EVOO, served with hummus and pita) as well as an array of flatbreads.
For the bigger appetite, Oliva offers burgers named after local streets from the Ohio Street Lamb Burger-(100% grass fed ground lamb, spinach and red onion salad, tzatziki) to the Ontario Street Burger-(100% grass fed ground beef, roasted green chilis, tomato, pepperjack cheese, chipotle mayo) and the house specialty-Souvlaki (skewers of Grass Fed lamb or Amish Pasture Raised chicken, basted with EVOO, lemon and grilled to perfection. Served with tzatziki, a side salad and pita).
