A small, sit-down restaurant in Prospect Heights serving up heaping portions of Jamaican dishes, like hearty, slow-simmered oxtail and rice and peas cooked with fresh herbs. They also have Stamp and Go—crispy saltfish also known as accras—served as an appetizer. Their jerk chicken and shrimp are coated in a spicy, nutty sauce. I love the Escovitch fish, which is typically a fried whole red snapper, served with a peppery vinegar sauce.

“Great for dates and family alike. Their brunch and even dinner is out of this world. You will always see this restaurant packed with 10-20 min waits. The food speaks for itself. You feel transported to another world when you are seated inside, the decor is beautiful and adds to the character of the place. ”
