After more trips to the Big Apple then I can count, I never miss a stop at the Olympic. Is it Tavern on the Green? No. Is it Ristorante Grifone? No. Is it just as amazing, in it's own way, as any top of the line, all too kitsch, upper crust NYC eatery? ABSOLUTELY! This is a classic ""hole-in-the wall"" NY restaurant. With everything imaginable on the menu and an attempt at anything that's not, I've never met a more accomodating staff. The look isn't stellar, but you'll find none cleaner. The food is prepared by a master chef, but the cook does a ""damn fine"" job, as it were, on everything that comes out of that kitchen. This is truly a place you shouldn't miss. Oh, did I mention the fact that the prices are INCREDIBLY REASONABLE?!!!
