Openings: What is unique about this new Greek restaurant in Boca Raton?


Opa! A new Greek restaurant is now open in Boca Raton and it’s a unique one. Oliv Pit Athenian Grille is one of the first eateries in America to use briquettes made from olive pits for grilling its meats

The olive pit briquettes are popular in Greece and Europe because they are smoke free, chemical free and burn hotter than traditional charcoal.
