Best Private Island: Island Frydays

Best Private Island

Island Frydays is the definitive restaurant to break out of culinary monotony, featuring authentic Caribbean cuisine made by former University of Cincinnati football captain and Jamaican native Leo Morgan. The place has been in Corryville for seven years but has somehow remained one of the city’s best-kept secrets, despite an appearance on Guy Fieri’s Diner’s, Drive-Ins and Dives in 2014. You really owe it to yourself to stop by and taste its curry and jerk dishes or go all the way Jamaican with escovitch snapper, oxtail dinner or curried goat with a side of plantains. There is nothing like it in this part of the country. Island Frydays, 2826 Vine St., Corryville, 513-498-0680,
