THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Callaloo Restaurant Review: When youre in the mood to dress comfortably but eat adventurously, check out this friendly Caribbean spot---where pastel walls, hand-painted tables, whirring fans and petal-shaped light fixtures create the kind of laid-back atmosphere that brings seashells and suntan lotion to mind. Colorful rum-based cocktails and piped-in reggae music keep the mood festive, while tostones, conch fritters and jerked chicken provide delicious authenticity. Owner Michael Washington-Brown, who says he set out to eliminate the shack mentality associated with Caribbean food, has pulled it off nicely, giving us a pretty, light-filled restaurant and equally appealing food. If you can take the heat, check out the Four-Hour Curried Goat and the coconut milk-laced Jamaican Pepperpot Soup, brimming with crab, sausage and callaloo (a spinach-like vegetable eaten throughout the Caribbean). And do save room for flavored rumcake served with mango sorbet. Its well worth the extra calories because after all, life is what Jamaica made it.
