Sunday will mark the soft opening of Olive on 3rd, Christine Fischer's cozy BYOB in the former Ava at Third and Gaskill Streets -- between South Street and Lombard Streets (518 S. Third St., 267-519-9498).
First day -- Father's Day! -- will feature a prix-fixe menu and comp dessert as Fischer eases the staff into the fray.
Fischer, paired in the kitchen with Gildardo Zavala Cortes, has been in catering and restaurants since 1995. She briefly owned the BYOs ChriStevens and Astral Plane Millenium.
She describes the cooking style as a little bit of everything -- hence the name. When planning the restaurant, she said, "I thought of 'Olive' instantly because olives are incorporated into every nationality and culture. And that is about who we are."
