    Miss Lily's is a bright, casual Jamacian spot with some of the best chicken in the Village and a bar that is literally a red stripe.

    Great cocktails, sexy crowd. Dinner by day, dancehall lounge by night. Feels like the West Indies, a good vibe for sure.

    Lunch or dinner, it's one of my new favorite places in the hood. Feels like you've escaped to Jamaica even if it's raining out. The girls who work here are Caribbean goddesses. -Diana

    Lobster tacos & coconut cake are to die for. Jamaican corn also pretty amazing (rolled in coconut!). Be warned--no hard liquor, but plenty of good beer and wine cocktails.

    Jerk Pork Belly Hash for brunch. Damnnnnnnn homeyyyyyyy.

    Jerk is not the only way to go. There’s a vegan Bushman plate, steamed grouper, and oxtails layered with deep flavor from three days marinating in garlic, onion, scallion, ginger and carrot.-G. Greene Read more

    Shredded beef patties? Divine. Jerk chicken sandwich? Best sandwich of my life. Coming from a West Indian family, I can already say this spot is one of my favorites.

    Alexandra Wood · January 25, 2012

    Try Ting, a Jamaican beverage that will leave you feeling Tingy!

    I was in nyc for a week and this was the best meal I had. Started with grilled corn with jerk mayo and coconut followed with a generous plate of oxtail stew with rice and beans. Sooooooo good. A++++

    The back room is great for groups. But if you're stuck up front, hit the bar and get the cocktail with sake in it. Also, don't forget to check out the little shop of rasta oddities next door.

    Everyone here is gorgeous. Is this a restaurant or a club?

    Ronen V · June 24, 2011

    Jerk chicken is the bomb. Jah-geritas are spicy and delicious. And they play caribbean/jamaican inspired jams for music. Check it out!

    The lady at the juice bar is so delightful, about as much personality as a door knob

    The jerk chicken sandwich is awesome -- has cucumbers and carrots like a spicy jerk banh mi. And it comes with a salad.

    Skip dinner, as it's mobbed and the service stinks. Instead do lunch at the takeaway spot next door with a fresh juice from Melvin.

    Cozy Caribbean style diner, blaring a funky mix of ska, and reggae, and serving up Jamaician Jerk-seasoned staples. Try the corn! —Tanya

    Great vibe and amazing Food. There is a DJ at all times playing a selection of reggae music. It is a bit expensive, but well worth it. Try the Jerk Chicken and Plantains.

    Food- amazing. Waitress- super fun. Hostess- I would consider never coming back because of how rude she was to our group of 7. We all agree.
