    The NYE tasting menu rocked my socks! The mushroom and truffle bread pudding was beyond! Excited to come back and try the main menu! Superior service as well!

    A Carribbean oasis with one of the best happy hours in the city—half priced drinks from 5-7 p.m., Monday – Friday. They have Tropas (tropical appetizers) and entrees. Try the Jamaican jerk wings. Read more

    If you are looking to try something new, get the Tofu Cracklins. It is a mouth watering dish of chipotle flavored tofu. Tofu done the right way. Yum x 10.

    The paella was legitimately one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Just awesome mix of meat, seafood, veggies, and rice!

    Make sure to ask about their home made ice cream. Great one was when they had avocado ice cream paired with ginger lime sorbet.

    Kaya juice is yummy and compliments the food well. I like the salmon salad, sweet potato fries, conch chowder and the sammich w/banana on it

    The Vegetable Burger name is really a misnomer. That sandwich was a far cry from the usual! So fresh and tasty!

    You want, nay, NEED the lentil beignets in your life. I know I live in a town with thousands of great restaurants but this is one I'd love to transplant to NYC. Hope you'ns appreciate it.

    Banana chocolate bread posing for the win. If you're really in the mood, try it with the Stamos dessert wine (either one).

    If you're veg-inclined, try the green curry vegetables and add tofu. It'll blow your freakin mind.

    It wasn't cheap but the food was good. We aren't vegetarian but tried the tofu lettuce wraps; very tasty! Hostess was a bit too sassy for my taste.
