Sunny Spot Restaurant Review

: Roy Choi, the chef who started the food truck craze with Kogi Korean BBQ-To-Go, and Dave Reiss, the veteran restaurateur of venues like The Brig, have teamed up once again following their collaboration on A-Frame. This time, the two have taken over the space that once housed Beechwood and the focus is on the bold flavors of the Caribbean. Guests are greeted by an industrial-looking front dining area with high-top metallic tables. The more formal dining room can be found in the back, along with the Rum Bar. Dishes are meant to be shared, with options like a spicy papaya and guava salad topped with crushed cashews, and a traditional mofongo (mashed overripe plantains, bacon and garlic). Twice-fried jerk chicken wings are smoky and crunchy, and the slow-roasted goat is more like a decadently rich, meat-driven stew. One mustn’t skip the sweet and salty fried plantains to accompany the meal. And for dessert, the sweet potato tart is comfortingly warm and served with marshmallow ice cream. There are a few wines and beers, but it’s best to try the imaginative rum concoctions.
