Chef English’s unique interpretation of Mediterranean cuisine, his famous showmanship with food and his restaurants and concepts have impressed diners in New York, Washington D.C., Las Vegas, The Bahamas, Kuwait and Manila.

The restaurant setting is also quite remarkable. Featuring a maze like interior with several areas, each with a distinct vibe – from sophisticated and luxe to casual – the moods and experiences offered at Todd English’s Olives are remarkably eclectic. For intimate gatherings, the restaurant offers two private rooms.
