Uton Graham grew up in Jamaica, and began helping out with the cooking at his parents' restaurant at an early age, according to Style Weekly writer Davis Morton. That's where he learned to prepare traditional Caribbean dishes such as curried goat or ackee and saltfish, which combines tropical fruit with tomatoes and cod. Later in life, he honed his culinary skills in the kitchens of New York restaurants, which helped him prepare to open his own restaurant, Caribbean Pot.
Here, diners tuck into Graham's Caribbean and Trinidadian menu against a backdrop of yellow and green walls and a mural of palm trees swaying in the ocean breeze. Pans of conch, shrimp, and lobster simmer in butter broth with scotch-bonnet peppers, and jerk chicken stews with tender oxtails. The cooks also prepare vegetarian dishes, such as a stir-fry of okra, cabbage, and callaloo, and squeeze fresh fruit juices.
In addition to hosting dining, the restaurant also stages entertainment. On Wednesday nights, visitors belt out karaoke, and on Thursday nights, they can groove to live bands or choirs of Bob Marley impersonators.
