As if in homage to island life, Negril Chelsea runs on its own inner clock. The Jamaican breakfast, a smorgasbord featuring the national dish of ackee and saltfish as well as bammie (a crisp flabread) is available all day long in the split-level dining room enlivened by colorful murals, while the bar begins pulling in patrons from lunch onwards with its array of rum cocktails and the view of the fish tank. Lunch and dinner are covered by the same menu, which features a take on jerk more smoky than spicy; escoveitch snapper, made all the more piquant by hot and sweet peppers; a selection of rotis—or the Jamaican breakfast if you’re still getting up.
