OV's? Old Vics? Original Vitals? Neither. OV
is the Americanization of "Hovannes" - the owner's first
name. Hovanne Dolarian may hail from Armenia, but he has
New England diner cooking down pat.
Looking at the
place you'd think it dates back thirty or forty years.
Nope. It opened in 2006. Neat thing is it's by one of
Johnson & Wales campuses - gets them culinary students
both on the stools and behind the grill.
Above, their corned
beef hash with a couple of poached eggs. The hash
is homemade and great. To the right one of their many
omelets, with Italian sausage peppers and onions.
For some reason
they felt our service was slow. We were talking and
didn't notice or care. That didn't stop them from
sending a free and giant coffee cup of rice pudding our
way. Very good rice pudding at that.
