Upscale-casual Caribbean in Oakland

This upscale-casual Caribbean joint serves up delicacies like short rib/oxtail/beef cheek "Pepperpot" stew and spicy crab with grits in lobster butter, plus refreshing specialty cocktails like the Hibiscus Royale. Consume it all atop white tablecloths, seated on comfy woven chairs, in a slate-floored dining room that's divided by cedar columns and lit by Venetian-style pendants that're blown in Oakland, so like Too $hort, but Venetian-style.
