CARMEL VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 18, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Quail & Olive celebrated its grand opening with nearly 250 new friends last Saturday at 3 Pilot Road, Carmel Valley, CA 93924.

"We are overwhelmed with excitement by the support of the community," said Stephen Brabeck MD, owner and cardiologist. "The Quail & Olive has become a reality through the efforts of our team and the generous spirit of the local olive growers and artisans whose products we are proud to carry. We hope our customers will feel at home when they visit."
