About this Business
From Our Editors
The staff at Jamaica House boasts that "some of our proudest moments are when customers travel to Jamaica and return to tell us they couldn't wait to come back for some of their oxtails!" Since opening in 1994, authenticity has been paramount to owner Carena Ives and chef Lenworth Roper, who serve up Caribbean staples such as ackee andn' saltfish, curry goat, and zesty jerk chicken. To further evoke the tropics, the quaint four-table dining room is completely wrapped in Happy the Artist's wall murals, which display islanders playing steel drums on a rainbow, a dolphin jumping through a constellation of stars, and a straight-laced tax attorney buttering his toast.
