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.

I wish I could give this place ten stars!! You walk in and you know this place is going to be good. Hands down the best wings I've ever tried and I am not a wings person. Their menu is amazing, it made me want to try everything! We had pineapple ciders which was just the best addition to the meal. The service was wonderful. I can't wait to go back!

The ambiance is AMAZING, the food is fantastic (the jerk chicken melts in your mouth), and the drinks are strong and fantastically prepared. Get the Mai Tai and you will feel as though you've be transported straight to the Caribbean.
