"Olives date back to before the invention of the written language," notes the web page for the Twisted Olive. "We're here to add a new chapter in Olive history, a fun and tasteful one. It starts with redefining and twisting the Olive's role in entertainment, cuisine, nightlife and most importantly...you!"
That's an ambitious agenda, but then, it won't take much to offer a twist on nightlife in Northfield Stapleton -- because there really isn't one. Twisted Olive, which will open this month (if there are no more construction delays) at 8270 East Northfield Boulevard, bills itself as an "ultra lounge" with a full service bar (72 specialty cocktails) and Mediterranean fare by executive chef Tom Willis, aka Cat Daddy. He's also promising artists and disc jockeys performing on "a world-class stage," as well as olive oil tastings and cooking classes.
Dinner will be served nightly Tuesday-Sunday, with brunch Saturday and Sunday; the official grand opening (private) party had been slated for Thursday, October 15, but is now postponed. For more information, call 303-375-8100.
