Best of Boston

1999 Best Caribbean Restaurant

Rhythm & Spice

This Central Square hot spot whips up mean stewed-goat curries and plantains, and presents live reggae on Friday and Saturday nights. Throw in some Jamaican beer and coconut ice cream, and a dreary evening in Cambridge turns into a warm, tropical Jimmy Buffetteria.
