CloverEats: Olea in New Haven
Probably one of the best meals we’ve had so far in New Haven, Olea offered some really fantastic and delectable dishes. Pictured above, the cochinillo was excellent, rivaling the flavors of cochinillo I had in Spain. Everything about the restaurant was great, from the atmosphere to the service to of course the food.
The restaurant is sophisticated, the tables spread apart enough so that conversations don’t blend. The palette is calm and soothing.
The cocktails were on point. There was a very interesting dry sangria that was crisp and smooth.
All of our entrees were absolute fantastic, ingeniously-crafted creations that were just really remarkable. Everything was quality.
This dessert was the most decadent and complex thing I’ve had in a long while. Mixtures of vanilla and caramel and dough all came together perfectly.
Overall, an excellent meal and experience. Of course, it’s not your everyday dinner, but this’ll be one of our go-tos for special occasions. Check them out on Yelp or at their website!
