Starting off as a sandwich shop, this restaurant’s chef and owner, Michael Jacober, was inspired by Crown Heights’ culinary ethnicity and switched his epicurean gear to create a Caribbean menu. The result: a cozy, aquamarine-colored eatery that’s all about Jamaican fare with brunch, lunch and an extensive island-sourced spirits menu. A wood-burning oven slow-cooks jerk chicken, pork and lobster, and entrees like whole fish and curry goat also get their due. As for drink choices, consider the rum-flavored Dark N’ Slushie or the Painkiller cocktail.
