It's seems like quite awhile since I've been to a TasteCasting event. Last night I enjoyed myself, along with a handful of other TasteCaster members, at The Olive Tree Mediterranean Cafe in Hilliard, Ohio.
This new restaurant opened just a few weeks ago and features Mediterranean food with strong Greek and Israeli influences.
We sampled so much food, all incredibly delicious! I did have a couple favorites. The spicy feta appetizer was incredible. Served with warm pita bread the feta cheese blended with olive oil, jalapeno peppers, fresh garlic and herbs had a little kick and a lot of flavor. This is something I will definitely be ordering when I visit again. I also really enjoyed the gyro meat and cinnamon rice with the gyro sauce.
All food is made fresh daily and it shows in quality and taste. We ended our tasting with coffee and baklava. I've always loved this Greek pastry but never had one with flaky phyllo dough. Very interesting to look at, very good to eat!
Being a new restaurant I also paid attention to their logo. I liked the simplicity and style, as well as how the olive color background mixed with the black and white fonts. It definitely says Mediterranean to me but in a modern way. The olive branch image is subtle and a nice addition. Maybe as they become more well known it can become their golden arches.
Obviously, another reason for TasteCasting is to help market the establishment through social media channels. Another way to help grow the business is through promotion. The Olive Tree Mediterranean Cafe did create a TasteCasting promotion . . . .
