A sidewalk café at White Olive (39 West 55th St) in Midtown allows guests to take in the sunshine while indulging in Mediterranean seafood specialties. They include the Lavraki, a delicate branzino filet served on a bed of mixed greens or the Grilled Octopus with eggplant puree and bechamel sauce. Red Snapper arrives lightly fried on a bed of mixed greens while Lobster Pasta makes for the perfect summer dish with Maine lobster over fettucine in cream alfredo sauce.

For drinks enjoy, enjoy a selection of breezy cocktails or mocktails like Mangopolitan with Bacardi, mango, fresh lime juice, mango puree, and a hint of cranberry juice and the Fig and Fabulous Martini made with Figenza Mediterranean fig flavored vodka, fresh lime juice, pomegranate juice, and garnished with a dried fig. For a sweet finish, try the new San Sabastian Cheesecake.
