Olio

Olio sits in a brilliantly re-purposed service station in the McRee neighborhood. With the Midwest’s top sommelier Andrey Ivanov at the helm, you can expect a topnotch wine list, which Olio has, including some odd varietals and a great Rosé made just for them. But the cocktails, too, are first rate. The menu changes each month, and bar manager John Fausz pays homage to classic cocktails from every era. The drink list is an eloquent little history lesson on the origin of each selection. Olio has nothing on draft, but it does offer a carefully curated list of beers in bottles and cans. Be sure to order a bite from the small kitchen, which is visible from the bar. From snacks like marinated olives, toasted nuts and hummus to heartier fare like tartines and rotisserie chicken, the food is every bit as good as the drinks.
