Olive & June, the new Southern Italian-style restaurant from acclaimed Austin chef and restaurateur Shawn Cirkiel, is now open seven days a week, with new dinner-service hours from 5 to 10 p.m. each Sunday and Monday. And beginning April 22, Olive & June is serving up a new family tradition with its Sunday night family-style dinners.
Served in a variety of restaurant spaces, including the main dining room, the second-floor dining room, the bar area and on the first-floor patio beneath the restaurant’s grand oak tree, Olive & June’s Sunday night family-style dinners ($35 per person, kids eat free) will include new dishes every week and seasonal specialties not found on the restaurant’s regular dinner menu. Though ala carte dishes from the regular dinner menu will not be available during Sunday dinner service, the family-style dinners feature a bounty of Chef Cirkiel’s hearty Southern Italian creations served together in generous portion sizes perfect for sharing with loved ones.
The inaugural Sunday night family-style dinner menu includes refreshing antipasti, as well as a salad, a contorni dish and a pasta course featuring Chef Cirkiel’s Old World-inspired house-made lasagna with lamb sausage, pomodoro and ricotta. The meal is finished off with a torta della nonna dish, meaning “grandmother’s tart,” a traditional and comforting Tuscan custard pie. Though Olive & June’s full wine list is available alongside the Sunday night family-style dinner menu, there will also be a number of featured wines for the evening.
With Olive & June’s new hours, guests are welcome to enjoy the restaurant’s daily happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. every day, including Sundays, with half-price beers, liquor and specialty cocktails served to dinner guests and to happy-hour guests on the charming second-floor patio.
Olive & June is located at 3411 Glenview Ave. in Central Austin. Serving Southern Italian-style cuisine handmade by renowned Chef Shawn Cirkiel, Olive & June is open seven days a week for dinner service.
