What’s Olgas on Smith?October 19, 2010 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #737941
Dunno, but I’m going to try and swing by either this or next Sunday. Its got a OK hechser, so my guess is, its run by a Chabad’sker. Smith and 3rd is only a few blocks from the Prospect Park Chabad house, so if in doubt, you can check with them to see if the place is under their watch as well.October 19, 2010 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #737942
Our office orders from there every single day, the food is AMAZING and moderately price (even the non jews order with us) and Olga often delivers herself and shes SO SWEET but I’m curious what the ambiance is like in the restaurant?October 19, 2010 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #737943YW Moderator-80Member
if there is an ambulance in the restaurant, thats not a good signOctober 19, 2010 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #737944squeakParticipant
most especially since EMTs in a restaurant don’t help anyone.October 19, 2010 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #737945WolfishMusingsParticipant

I was always ambivalent about the ambiance in an ambulance.

I can’t say for sure, but if the place is popular with EMTs, Hatzoloh and Shomrim can’t be far behind.
Now that’s ambiance!October 19, 2010 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #737947squeakParticipant
No… this is broken telephone.October 19, 2010 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #737948
good point squeak, I figured it was either that or someones humor is way off…??October 19, 2010 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #737949
OK, back on track. If the place is a favorite of the Prospect Park / Park Slope crowd, and is kosher, I’m pretty sure its going to be a real scene. Not a teen hangout, not a place where the lights & sirens crowd goes, but a real scene none-the-less.
Think Matisyahu, as opposed to Lipa.

different is nice, its prob a good place to go on dates if u dont wanna be seen by all ur friends at the brooklyn marriot 🙂February 8, 2011 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #737951
I finally made it to Olgas, and for those of you who have not gone yet, I think its worth the trip.
Panninis are their specialty, and the sweet potato fries were top notch.
Place is very nice, floor to ceiling window, ideal for a daytime date. When you’re done eating, you can walk down one block to Court Street and check the shops there (nothing real interesting for me, but Mrs. loves to window shop, and Court St had loads of quirky, trendy stores)February 8, 2011 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #7379521dayatatimeParticipant
Their prices are greatFebruary 8, 2011 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #737953ProfessionalMember
I got a prob. when I am asked to order food, I order for mostly non kosher people, and am given a budget based on non kosher, so I order Kosher, adn end up paying out of pocket for the balance, and wodner maybe allow them to order and bring something from home. Only gain for my financial daily subsidy is knowing sometimes that a jew eats kosher. (a jew sometimes in group, not always).February 9, 2011 2:10 am at 2:10 am #737954
i really love olgas paninis and salads and its perfect because i work in park slope and there are NO other kosher restaurants that would deliver.
i even told a guy i was dating about it and we went out there its a perfect dating spot. olga decorated herself from ikea….she sold her brownstone which was across from the park, to open this shop and bh shes getting there, i think….shes really sweet and friendly too…i highly recommend this place!!!!
the nonjewish girl at my office always orders with us paninis cause they are so good and fresh…u just cant compare it to mcdonalds or subway.
