This Caribbean spot on 5th Avenue is a real triple threat: the Jamaican cocktails are memorable, their jerk lamb meatballs and stuffed snapper are worth traveling for, and they even have a few booths for small groups on their sidewalk patio. The catch is, a lot of people know these three things already, which is why their first come first served patio is usually packed on weekends. Show up early for a Sunday night table or stop by for oxtails on a weeknight.
