Vegetable patty in coco bread; escovitch-style snapper; codfish with ackee.
Special Features: Kid Friendly
Good, too, is the traditional pairing of ackee—a sweet Jamaican fruit that cooks up looking like pale scrambled eggs—with codfish ($9.50 small, $11 large). Don’t expect to grab a quick bite: Only one server works the counter, and when we visited she was on island time. In coming weeks, look for a juice bar and live-music nights.
Open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner.
