The food was BEYOND delicious! The place was unassuming and had a family feel. Despite the long wait (there was only one person taking the orders) I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. I will absolutely return with friends and family!

From Our Editors

Caribbean treats and Southern specialties come together on one menu at this Manhattan Valley restaurant. Opened in 2009 by Eleanor Pettaway and her son, Freda’s Caribbean & Soul Cuisine takes its name from Pettaway’s mother, whose own parents were from Trinidad and Barbados. Eating well is a family tradition here, with country classics like macaroni ‘n’ cheese, collard greens and candied yams dotting the menu at Freda’s. Other plates emerging from the small kitchen might be piled high with curried chicken, goat or shrimp, while fresh jerk chicken, fried shrimp and oxtail stew are prepared by the restaurant’s Trinidadian kitchen crew. Exposed brick, wood floors, a long run of glass that faces the street and lots of elbow room make this a local favorite that’s slowly getting traction throughout Manhattan.
