MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Ready to live the Caribbean dream? All it takes is a few sips of a rum cocktail at Chef/owner Michael Jacober’s festive café. This turquoise-tinted destination is where locals come together for happy hour libations (the comprehensive list features bottles from Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados) as well as for flavor-packed dishes at budget prices. The kitchen is liberal with Jamaica's signature jerk seasoning, a magical blend of allspice, Scotch bonnet pepper and citrus that's applied to chicken, pork, seitan and even whole lobsters. The latter are kept fresh in a tank and a thrown onto a pimento wood-fired grill. Save room for the succulent bowl of curry goat with chunks of potatoes and carrots, best enjoyed with a side of coconut-scented rice and peas.
