Featured Wine
Do Ferreiro 2010 Cepas Vellas Albariño (Rías Baixas)
Château Musar 1975 Blanc (Bekaa Valley)

The Wine Program
The bottle list (shared by both concepts) ranges between 250–300 selections sourced from 23 countries and uses a Coravin to offer any bottle by the glass at one-third the bottle price. Elaia focuses on precise pairings, and each dish on the nightly menu is paired to a specific wine. The wines can come from the New World, but are more often chosen from the Mediterranean based on regional influence. Olio offers wines by the glass, flight or bottle with a menu that changes monthly. Each month focuses on a specific grape, region or style.

Favorite Dish
Though a same-site, dual-concept restaurant, these siblings share a corridor, management team and a quirky, cool 250-bottle wine list. Elaia is the place for more formal, multicourse tastings, while the smaller Olio, set in a former Standard Oil Filling Station from the 1930s, has more of a wine-bar feel, with small plates like charred eggplant dip accented by kefir and tahini.

Corkage Policy
It’s $30, but one corkage fee is waived for every bottle purchased from the list.
