Olea, Chef Mehrnoosh's Pizza, Panini, and Salads - King and Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria - Closed

Recommended Posts

Olea is the latest venture in the space previously occupied by Parsian Restaurant and Zorkafor's SandVeg.

They're currently in a soft opening phase, and are serving the menu at half-price for the next few weeks. I haven't been in yet, but plan to make a visit, as I did enjoy the sample of their pizza that was being offered out front.  It had a light, crispy crust, good flavor, and wasn't at all greasy. The chef (Mehrnoosh) and her husband, Majid, are Iranian and, according to this blog post linked on their website, she had an Italian restaurant in Tehran prior to immigrating to the US. The menu includes panini and salads, though they may be adding breakfast and some other items in the future.

The space has been nicely updated, the staff appear to be very friendly and enthusiastic, and I hope they'll be very successful!
