To motivate kids to finish their dinners, mothers often remind them that Santa is watching, only to discover the appetite-stifling effects of living in a panoptical Orwellian nightmare.

Joining the cuisine of two of the finest foodie nations under one sprinkler system, The Olive Tree pampers palates with savory menu favorites in a tasteful, casual atmosphere. Dinner diners can engage in Socratic repartee over Grecian scallops sautéed with wine and garlic, topped with feta, and served with pasta marinara and the Platonic ideal of justice ($14.95). Pasta-centric plates such as the Olive Tree lasagna ($10.95/dinner, $7.50/lunch) and three-cheese baked ziti ($10.95/dinner, $6.95/lunch) pair well with a libation from the full-service bar. High-noon hunger can be blown away with a fistful of chicken or shrimp souvlaki ($7.75) or a veggie pita wrap stuffed with grilled onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and a dusting of feta ($6.50).
Menus may vary by location.
Olive Tree Greek & Italian Cuisine
Visitors at any of Olive Tree Greek & Italian Cuisine’s three locations bask in the tantalizing aroma of garlic drifting from the kitchen, which bustles with a lineup of expert chefs. Seated at a cozy table, guests dig into an array of traditional Greek and Italian dishes, taking alternating bites of veal parmesan and grecian scallops. And their mouth-watering Maryland crab cakes come from a special family recipe that was perfected at their sister restaurant Olive Grove in Maryland. Hosting outdoor dining, the Villa Rica restaurant shelters patrons beneath an awning-protected patio, and the Hiram location houses them in a quaint brick terrace flanked by lattices and the tendrils of hanging plants, which often sneak bites of baked pasta over diners' shoulders. The Hiram location further entertains the senses with live music during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. At all three locations, patrons can wash down savory bites with wine, draft beer, and specialty cocktails from the full bar, and can request takeout or catering for special events and weddings.
