Order a consistently fresh falafel sandwich and select the potatoes as your side. For a change of pace, try the Briam (Greek Vegetarian Casserole).
Mediterranean restaurants and falafel are like Thai restaurants and Pad Thai: that signature dish acts as the entrance to the entire menu. If the falafel is no good, you don't go back. If the falafel nails it, you continue on, trying everything. The problem--if it can be called that--with Blue Olive is that the falafel is so amazing it remains difficult to venture on to other items on the menu. But it's worth it folks, venture on, venture on.
