This is definitely one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food is always consistent, with emphasis on spice (hence the carribean fare) and mixing great flavor with texture. The atmosphere is wonderful, with exposed brick, large local paintings, dim lighting, and beat-heavy yet tamed music. This restaurant is satisfying in every way a restaurant should be. The menu is limited, though I have never been even slightly dissapointed with a meal there. Wine list is also small, but you have to take this place for what it is, because it is rare. Mango bruchetta offers odd mixture of flavors, but a wonderful aftertaste. Jerk chicken, shark, and vegetable tobago recommended. And no matter how full you are of cocktails and spicy food you MUST get the pina colada bread pudding. Ezuli also brings in a great mixture of people and is very affordable.
