The next time you’re near the Brooklyn Museum, keep your eye out for this small Caribbean nook that serves flavorful and well-sized portions. The slow-cooked menu is straight on with its jerk chicken, braised oxtail platters, crispy fried chicken, baked mac and cheese and calypso shrimp. You can visit the happening cooking quarters on the lower level or head up a steel staircase to find a seat in the low-ceiling dining room upstairs—or take yours to go.
