Red Olive Restaurant is scheduled to open in late February at 42757 Woodward Avenue in Bloomfield Township, formerly occupied by the Sweet Tree Family Restaurant. The Bloomfield Township Red Olive will join several others in the metro area, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night casual dining and Mediterranean fare. The lore is that a member of the family was sailing in the Mediterranean when he noticed a hidden olive grove growing wild on the embankment. As the sunlight broke through, he saw a tree with beautiful red olives, which were the most beautiful thing he had ever seen – “one in a million!” “It inspired him to create his own restaurant years later where he would offer up the same blend of all the best tastes he’d discovered around the world, especially those of the Mediterranean and his homeland of Greece. He wanted his restaurant to be the ‘one in a million’ place that stood out from all the other choices.” Red Olive will be open daily at 7 a.m.
