The Breadfruit Restaurant Review

: Owner and Jamaican expatriate Dwayne Allen’s recipes haven’t been Americanized for milder palates, especially those dishes containing authentic Jamaican chilies. Don’t bite directly into the peppers served with escovitch tilapia, for example; they’re flame-throwers, barely tempered by soothing sides like roasted pineapple, Ital coleslaw, roasted corn on the cob and the thick cornmeal-cane sugar bread sticks called festivals. Imported beverages like D&G Jamaican ginger beer soda help quell the heat, but jerk chicken and shrimp will still grab you by the lapels and shake, shake, shake you back up again. There are curries, of course, thick slices of sweet roasted plantain, mauve hued green bananas and huge wheat dumplings to soak up the good sauce. Make room, too, for the charmingly chewy-strange sundae of vanilla ice cream, cherry Jell-o cubes, raisins, maraschino cherries and a sprinkle of Grape-Nuts. Service is friendly, mon, and don't be surprised if the kitchen crew calls out from the kitchen to see, "hey, are you happy out there?"
