Evelyn & Olive Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: The small dining room only seats a few, and tables tend to fill up at lunch, as this place is quite popular with downtown workers. Seafood and fish dominate the entrées with dishes such as jerk tilapia pasta (with fettuccine and red pepper cream) and salmon croquettes with Jamaican boom boom sauce. Fish-free options include sandwiches and wraps, such as the pork tenderloin wrap with pineapple slaw. Vegan and vegetarian options abound and boast cutesy 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). The tofu and black bean tacos with kiwi salsa are a local favorite. 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.
