The restaurant, a favorite among Best of Dayton voters, opened about three years ago at  6129 N. Dixie Drive in Harrison Twp., Montgomery County. 

This Olive should not be confused with Olive: an Urban Divewhich closed in 2015 in the current downtown Dayton home of Arepas & Co Colombian Comfort Food, or the former Green Olive restaurant a few miles south of it on Dixie.
