If spring break was the last time you had your fill of Caribbean flavor, get yourself to Daphne’s. Hot, slightly bitter callaloo soup, smoky jerk pork and mild curried-chicken roti are the dishes to look for at this chilled-out Jamaican cafeteria. Beach bums, beware: Sweet complements like cold ginger beer and moist, rum-soaked coconut bread-pudding might interfere with your Hawaiian Tropic agenda.
