Southern
At Olamaie, Southern food rooted in love and tradition is complemented by contemporary culinary techniques. Chef de Cuisine Amanda Turner breathes new life into the culinary legacy of the South by marrying her various inspirations drawn from the African diaspora in the south and beyond in collaboration with Executive Chef/Owner Michael Fojtasek.

Olamaie is the first name of five generations of women in Executive Chef Michael Fojtasek’s family. His mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great-grandmother and now his daughter all honor the name with their shared patience, acceptance of others, boundless love, and soulful allegiance to food.

    The food was wonderful. My friend had rabbit that she loved. I had shrimp that was insanely good. Molly, who took care of us, listened and paid attention. Chef Amanda came out and said hello. It was a great experience. I don’t have a picture of it but … the biscuit defies description.

    The non-alcoholic beer was not very good. The fish with rice dish, which I have had before, was not as flavorful as before. The piece of red snapper, however, was very well-cooked and delicious. Delicious dessert.
