Evelyn & Olive Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Seafood and fish dominate the entrée list at this casual Jamaican restaurant. Dishes such as jerk tilapia pasta with fettuccine and red pepper cream, and salmon croquettes with Jamaican boom boom sauce are customer favorites. But there are also fish-free options including sandwiches and wraps, such as the pork tenderloin wrap with pineapple slaw. Vegan and vegetarian selections abound and boast names like the Marley Meal (seasoned Kingston cabbage and rice with pigeon peas) and Rasta Pasta (vegetables and black beans tossed with fettuccine and olive oil). Tofu and black bean tacos with kiwi salsa are available, too. For dessert, try Olive’s bread pudding, a Southern classic served with cinnamon cream. Although called a “wine bar,” Evelyn & Olive doesn’t boast a massive wine list, just some standard American and Italian wines, most of which are affordable by the glass. The place does, however, make a mean Jamaican rum punch.
