The appetizer of artichoke hearts encrusted with falafel batter is a nifty idea, served on an undulating bed of hummus with a chopped eggplant salad and tahini, and so is the entrée trio of lamb sausage, sliced lamb loin done medium rare, and pungent lamb tajine poured over couscous. Olea is the successor to A Table in a charming boxy space on a lonely verdant corner of Lafayette. The furniture, though, is as uncomfortable as ever-which is OK, we guess, since the pan-Mediterranean menu provides plenty of interesting stuff to distract you.
