Founder's Story

Olive Mediterranean Grill was built on the American Dream. The owner, Faisal Ghani, an immigrant to the United States, came from humble roots, with no plan or direction. He got his 1st job at a sandwich shop and worked his way from floors, to driver then manager- and finally owner. Faisal’s dream was to leave the world of sandwiches and bring his favorite cuisine to the city he now loved and called home- hence the birth of Olive Mediterranean Grill. The menu items were carefully curated for a healthy food lover from Chicago. Items like the baba ghanoush the Lentil Soup with a Twist and Chicken Kebob sandwich will make you say O-M-G every time!

Aside from being a restaurateur, Faisal is also a fitness enthusiast, and it remains his vision for Olive Mediterranean Grill to give Chicagoans the opportunity to indulge without the guilt! The menu is clean & locally sourced, with all items made fresh daily, and served in recyclable containers. Being good to our bodies, and good to the earth are core company values for the OMG staff.

Olive Mediterranean Grill is available 7 days a week across every delivery app, and for takeout in Lincoln Park & Evanston. Eat, Live, Love - Olive Mediterranean Grill!
