A resurrection of Al B. White’s 1939’s vaudeville landmark, the “new” Retro Lounge serves up a menu courtesy of executive chef Nilka Hendricks, best known for her work on season seven of Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen. Chef Hendricks' diverse array of palette-pleasing dinner dishes ranges from the grilled rib-eye steak rubbed with jamaican jerk seasoning ($23) to the zesty shrimp and crab enchiladas with saffron rice and a lobster bisque sour cream sauce ($14). At lunch, guests can build their own sandwiches from more than 50 different fillings culled from beasts of the land, sea, air, and soil ($4.25–$5.25), or gobble up a slew of salads ($6–$7.50) or gourmet paninis such as the Brooklyn Avenue, with veggies slathered in goat cheese, olive tapenade, and balsamic-honey ($6.75).

Adding the right seasonings can make or break a meal, and no one knows that better than Jeff Bacchas. So when the native of Negril, Jamaica, opened his Long Island eatery, he named it Spices Negril Restaurant & Lounge. The menu is a tribute to the power of a little creative spicing. The popular jerk chicken wings are marinated and saut?ed in a blend of more than seven herbs and spices, and a goat dish gets its kick from being slow-cooked in a spicy curry sauce. Even the "rasta pasta"?penne with peppers, onion, and garlic?comes topped with blackened seasoning. Diners can balance their meals with a sweet island cocktail, such as the Peach Schnapps?based Jolly Jamaican. Of course, the other way the restaurant spices up its meals is with live entertainment. The lounge hosts calypso and reggae performers throughout the week, including DJs and the reggae band Inner Roots.
