95 Haverstock Hill
Oliver's Fish and Chips is a cute little chippy in Belsize Park - apparently it was founded by the same people who started Millie's Cookies. The inside is well-lit and cheerful, and W and I were seated quickly. About 15 minutes later, the restaurant was heaving and there was a line out the door for takeout, so it looks like people in the neighborhood are pretty excited about it. We both opted for matzo-encrusted hake with side of chips, and were pleased with how fresh the fish tasted. The matzo option was a nice change from batter as well. The side of mushy peas were flecked with mint, prices were reasonable and service was pretty efficient - all in all, a nice place to eat locally if you are lucky enough to live in this area.
