This order-at-the-counter Caribbean restaurant is one of the most inviting places in the city. With its bright pink walls, turquoise plates, and family portraits hanging everywhere, Miss Ollie’s feels like an extension of a living room - if that living room also served family-style jerk shrimp, corn fritters, and the best skillet-fried chicken we’ve ever had. Whenever we’re in the mood for friendly faces, plantains, and a rum cocktail, we head straight for Miss Ollie’s.
