Miss Ollie’s Headed to Swan’s Market Building in Oakland


Come early fall, you will once again be able to have some of chef Sarah Kirnon's crazily delicious fried chicken. The former Hibiscus chef has inked a deal, as the Chron is reporting, for the former Jesso's spot (901 Washington Street), in the Swan's Market building in Old Oakland. Her restaurant, a noted earlier, will be called Miss Ollie's, after her grandmother who taught her how to cook. The space is actually just a few doors down from the upcoming Oakland outpost of Rosamunde, and Kirnon is planning to model Miss Ollie's after the kind of one-stop-shop restaurants one finds in the Caribbean, serving a whole pig one day, and, of course, fried chicken the next. In the meantime, you will be able to find her making chicken at a few as-yet-unnanounced pop-ups like the one she did at Bar Tartine in February, so we lied. [Chron, Earlier]
