The story of 


A nod to Wellington's founder

The land that would become Wellington, FL was the world’s largest strawberry patch known as the Flying Cow Ranch. In the 1950’s a New York Accountant named Charles Oliver Wellington purchased 18,000 acres of the land for as little as $50 an acre. Half a century later Wellington, Florida and Oli’s Fashion Cuisine owe their namesakes to Charles Oliver Wellington.



Opening its doors in November of 2010, Oli’s Fashion Cuisine takes note of Wellington’s agricultural origins and development into a prosperous community. Using the finest local ingredients and flavors, Oli’s introduces delicious, fashionable cuisine that appeals to all the senses in a modern, sophisticated atmosphere.

     Co-Owners, Executive Chef Dustin Parfitt and President Juan Gando, chose Wellington, FL as the location of their first restaurant with the vision to bring Palm Beach-Style Dining to western communities. Oli’s offers residents a perfect place to meet, dine and enjoy an enthusiastic night life in their own back yard.

"The Fashion Cuisine concept reflects the menu’s au courant use of ingredients and plate presentations."

Wellington The Magazine

"Eating at Oli’s is an experience, from the artwork along the walls, the chandeliers casting dancing shadows from the ceilings, the equestrian elements and the elegant bar."
