Jamaica Mi Hungry

There’s no weak link on the menu at this Jackson Square favorite, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year: Simple sides like curry vegetable stew or sweet plantains shine just as bright as the headliners, from hearty beef ribs to the fiery jerk chicken that nods to chef and owner Ernie Campbell’s native Jamaica. Don’t miss the crispy coconut shrimp with sweet-spicy dipping sauce — a crowd-pleaser for kids and grownups alike.
