The Real "Creole" Deal
Featuring a hearty menu, with layers of home-style classics and a definite nod to Louisiana Creole, Chef Brian Olenjack consistently hits his mark.
The former Flying Saucer in Arlington’s Lincoln Square is now the space that Olenjack’s Grille calls home. Little has changed on the interior with dark wood tones, burgundy carpeting and a soothing linen-colored plaster on most walls. There is a bar area and mixed seating with a combination of booths, banquettes and tables. But the casual dining atmosphere does not really prepare you for the outstanding food that you are about to experience. There seems to be a slight disconnect on that point. It would make more sense to turn off the televisions, turn up the music and dim the lights a little to match the menu.
