went to the olive vine (or was it olive tree?) in park slope on friday for lunch (it's on that one main drag -- is it 5th av. or something? sorry.) and it was really quite good. i got the salad sample plate; excellent baba ganoush, delicious taboleh, wonderful hummous, and terrific lentil and barley. the foule was kind of yucky. my friend got the merguez sandwich and it was to die for. this was some of the best middle-eastern lunchy food i've had in a long time.
