In her release, Collett said, “It’s been a great run, and we’re so thankful to Dayton and all our die-hard regulars — you’ve helped make us so much more than we ever dreamed we would be.”
“We’re stopping at the top of our game, which is a hard, hard thing, but change is inevitable and if I’ve realized anything this year, it’s that life is uncertain, you’ve got to make the most of it and choosing to let go is sometimes the hardest, bravest, best thing you can do.”
Olive will continue normal hours through Oct. 10. The restaurant is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday, dinner Thursday through Saturday, and brunch on Saturday.
The restaurant, which opened in July 2011, is located in an 800-square-foot former Wympee diner that dates to 1938. It received the National Hobart Grant for Sustainability in Food Service in 2014 and was featured as one of Ohio’s top farm-to-table restaurants this year in an article in Ohio Magazine.
