Olive & Thyme Brings Mediterranean Fare to Clintonville

Susan Post Susan Post Olive & Thyme Brings Mediterranean Fare to Clintonville

Clintonville lost a Panera, but gained new local eatery Olive & Thyme in its place. Olive & Thyme opened in late November 2020 at 4519 N.

Panera is fine. Good, even, when it comes to something like a cinnamon twist. Beyond the edibles, its emptied structural shell has made an excellent, spacious home for a new project in Clintonville: Olive & Thyme.

Everyone in the restaurant looked so happy. And they were all getting their orders so quickly: steaming plates of succulent meats and vibrant vegetables kept hustling by, all to the delight of eaters seated at nearby tables. Except at one table that sat barren, save for glasses of water with mint. Of course, it was […]
