We Olive, a small California franchise that sells domestic olive oil in addition to balsamic vinegars, tapenades, mustards, and pestos is opening its first outlet on the East Coast. More precisely, it's moving to Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
Currently under construction, the new location at 116 Smith Street will also feature a bar that will serve California wines, beers and small plates.
From Brooklyn's We Olive & Wine Bar website:
We Olive and Wine Bar will be opened on Smith St. in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn. Boerum Hill is a neighborhood with a small town feel. Streets are still lined with gas-filled lamps and trees. The area has many fine shops and great restaurants that are owned and operated by award winning New York City Chefs. Boerum Hill is a short subway ride from the epicenter of New York City, the borough of Manhattan. Visitors could tour New York City and then return to Boerum Hill to relax in a family oriented neighborhood.
According to the website, the new store/bar will be ready to open this coming summer.
Most recently, 116 Smith Street was occupied by Lunetta, a Mediterranean eatery.
