Artisanal Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar Shop Coming to 140 5th Avenue

The second location of O Live Brooklyn, which specializes in premium extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars, will be opening soon in the space last occupied by E Lingerie, on 5th between Douglass and Baltic.

The specialty (to say the least) shop already has one location on Broadway in Williamsburg, and at this location they'll feature dozens of single-varietal olive oils and balsamic vinegars on tap, as well as many flavored olive oils, salts, olive wood accessories, and a handful of specialty items, owner Greg Bernarducci told Park Slope Stoop.

“I suspect there are many among you who eat all-natural, organic produce and meats, and fresh olive oil is a natural and beneficial addition to a healthy diet,” Bernarducci added. He'll also be teaching an Olive Oil 101 class.

All products are provided by 90 year-old Veronica Foods, which works with producers all around the world.

Like the incoming shop that specializes in aperitifs and digestifs a few blocks away, this shop will have a rather narrow focus, which can work for it or against it. It's one thing to do one thing and do it well, but it's always a toss-up as to whether or not sales will be substantial enough to turn a profit in a space that's most likely very high-rent. Still, this shop will introduce plenty of items to the neighborhood that aren't yet available, so fingers crossed that they can make it work.

They're currently hiring part-time employees; those with a "knowledge of or interest in food, cooking, and healthy eating" can send their resume to olivebrooklyn@gmail.com, a sign in the window indicates.

While I wish these narrow-focus entrepreneurs good fortune, it is difficult for me to imagine that they have done their due diligence. Let's see: rent+utilities+salaries+insurance+benefits+marketing/advertising+e-commerce+overhead=lots of olive oil and balsamic vinegar @ $3 margin per bottle sold. Imagine going to a bank to borrow money with a business plan that includes the above math. I don't think so.

The liquor store planning to specialize in aperitifs and digestifs has run into opposition from some other liquor/wine stores located nearby on 5th avenue. Their initial SBLA license was declined.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterReal Park Sloper

I don't get it. Why do I need an entire shop to refill a bottle of olive oil? I can just buy a bottle of Key Food and, if I really, really want to keep that bottle, I can just refill it at the Larder, for probably half the price this place will charge. Most of the time, though, I'll just buy another bottle of olive oil.

The reminds me of the Walk-In Cookbook. Something no one needs, and a place for which how many trees will die for a remodeling job which will just get done over in a few months when it closes. No one is going to go to this place. They'll be too busy shaking their booties at the new Bogota venture next door.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered Commentereddard

Key Food doesn't come in bottles, man. It's a store.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFelton

A year or so ago I went to a Olive Oil 101 class at his original location and found it very informative. Also, having just finished a book about how most olive oil you buy in stores is fraudulent and mostly vegetable oil, I'm looking forward to this place opening

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTony

The store in Williamsburg does a pretty healthy business. Don't think they'd open a 2nd location if the first wasn't working out.

Walk in Cookbook is a bad example, since that entire concept was shaky from the start. If you've actually BEEN to this "olive oil" store in Williamsburg, you'd realize they have tons of other products. Lots of great gift items and lots of foodstuffs similar to Bklyn larder.

That maple syrup store on 5th avenue that opened for a month before xmas is reopening full time in the same space. They did killer business.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterIna

Park Slope is a perfect fit for this.

Our greenmarkets do such good business that they are expanding to multiple days of the week and their entire model is doing one thing very well. You go get your eggs from one place, fish from another, vegs from another. That's how many people who care about their food shop now. I suspect this will be similar.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

I've heard that about most store-bought olive oils too. I'd be interested in doing a taste comparison.

But, I'm wondering if this shop will succeeded? Seems like it would be more at home on 7th ave, where the income is a bit higher and people are a bit older (and would possibly therefore cook more, and be in need of better olive oil?) and the people on 5th tend to be a younger crowd, spending more money at the bars on shots.

Maybe they hope to draw people from the faux-projects over on 5th ave and 9th. Perhaps a few of you could chime in, I recall seeing someone on this site before (and back before I even knew those were projects!)

Still, I wish this place well! I'll check it out.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterButterfly

Folks on 7th ave would just buy olive oil for cooking. You only need a new bottle every once and a while. But olive oil for sex, now that goes fast. Much better market on 5th ave.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJbob

You should head down to 3rd Ave, JBob, where the streets are strewn with gallons of the stuff. They're heathens down there.

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFelton

Youre giving a new meaning to Whole Foods Felton

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJbob

I recently purchased olive oil from the farmer's market and I can promise you it is much better than the typical supermarket fare. I hope this place find success like the maple syrup place (which has the best maple syrup I've ever had - I'm looking forward to their opening). The meanness on this board is amazing....some people seem to take pleasure in stores failing.

And once again they are not faux projects on 9th Street - it is Mitchell Lama Housing which just means that you can't make more than a certain amount of money to live there. My in-laws used to live in Mitchell Lama housing in Brighton Beach and I guess because it was predominately white, they weren't called projects.

This is a working class neighborhood. We don't need extra-special olive oil here. The stuff you can get at the supermarket, or at the Larder, is just fine by us. What's next? A salt store? A water store.

People on here like to complain about the Larder have it wrong. I was in the Larder the other day, and I bought a lemonade for $3.25. I guess some would consider that expensive but, if you walk down the street, the raw vegan place sells their lemonade for $6.00! Six dollars! That's crazy or, as the kids say, "that sh*t cray." This neighborhood, like Williamsburg, is going to the elites, which is why we must stop this olive oil place.

May 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterEddard

For the last time, if a building puts a cap on income to live there, it's a project. Race has nothing to do with it.

I want more olive oil and will head to this shop as soon as it open!

May 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterButterfly

This place also has some really interesting balsamic vinegars. I bought an espresso flavored one that goes really well with ice cream, and a peach flavored one that i mix with vodka and soda water

Hope they signed a short term lease

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterfLUKE

Jesus christ, no one calls it "The Larder." That is your made up cutesy nickname and it is ridiculous.
"Just picking up some cheese at The Larder!" For fuck's sake.

Second, if that is the business you're propping up as fairly priced, everyday goods for working class people you are out of your goddamn mind. They sell good provisions but are hardly the model of the everyday and affordable. And they are wildly overpriced.

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJN

I thought it WAS called the Larder. That's what we call it in my family.

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJames BondStreet

Bklyn Larder is the most overpriced store in Park Slope. ZERO of their clientele are "working class" they are all rich yuppies.

And no, no one calls it The Larder.

Looks like Eddard changed his name to James BondStreet.

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

"Hope they signed a short term lease"

Why? Their Williamsburg store is going on year 3 and thriving. You'd have to be an idiot to sign a short term lease in this market. That's exactly why so many stores close because they are too stupid to lock in a decent rate for a long term lease. Their location in Williamsburg is where so many of the restaurants there buy their olive oil and other products in large quantities. Some of you are just dumber than dirt when it comes to business.

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTim

Brooklyn Larder's merchandise IS high priced olive oil (and cheese, prepared foods etc but it is overpriced, luxury goods). Offering it as a contrast is ludicrous. They are in the same field offering to similar buyers. The idea that Brooklyn Larder (and this isn't an insult to them) is a corner bodega is insane. That doesn't mean Brooklyn Larder isn't good (they sell good stuff!) but it does mean your contrasting it with this store is batshit. .

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJN

So excited for this to open in Park Slope! Have been to the Williamsburg store but it's a bit out of the way for me to go as often as I'd like. (I mean, perfect housewarming gift here!) Can't wait for some great basil olive oil for those delicious summer tomatoes! Best of luck!
