PLAN DATE: FRI / FEB. 1
This is a nook for authentic, more than above average jerk chicken and Jamaican delicacies, with a comprehensive menu that includes classic tender Jerk Chicken, Oxtail, and Curry Goat—all with sides of warm, steamy rice and peas, plantains and savory cabbage. The flavors of the food and hustling, bustling, homey feel of the place will transport you to the warm Caribbean. And big portions means you get to load up on gooey mac and cheese, chicken and sweet, tasty plantains in the generous heaps they deserve. It’s the perfect place to dig in and forget you’re smack in the middle of NYC winter.
When your bellies are full and satisfied, head over to Brooklyn Jazz and Sports Club to unwind over some coolly casual live jazz, and classic, cheap drinks that’ll get you to kick back, relax, and enjoy the tunes. It’s a spot where you’ll find locals lounging in the dark, and you can feel at ease tucking yourselves into a corner and canoodling over your drinks while the music swirls around you. Lowkey, cozy and laidback, it’s where you want to be on a Friday night.
