Venue Info

Owner and Chef Nigel Jones was raised in Kingston, Jamaica, and he blends the bold, aromatic flavors (garlic, ginger, cinnamon) of his native island with Oakland’s organic ingredients to create a uniquely bracing menu in this airy, colorful Uptown space. The lineup features standouts like jerk chicken that’s marinated and smoked for hours before being paired with sweet plantains. The rich, slow-simmered curried goat is a must-try and, while it’s only prepared from Thursday to Saturday, worth planning your reservation around. Pair your pick with a Caribbean cocktail like the Cuba Libre with Angostura white rum and Mexican coke.
