As vibrant as the isles from which the recipes sprang, Lorenz Island Kuisine’s Caribbean curry and jerk dishes ignite senses and cool cravings. Guests can roll hungry eyes over the menu, then silently salivate while staring at 1 of 12 appetizers, such as a cheesy veggie patty or a beef patty with coco bread. Classic fish, meat, and veggie entrees seasoned with jamaican herbs and spices include oxtail, goat curry, and jerk chicken with a sauce that “will light you up,” says the Boston Globe. A selection of 14 sides rounds out meals and hushes petulant bellies with the likes of sweet-potato fries, dumplings, and mac ‘n’ cheese, and a jamaican bun with cheese, or the island’s own fruitcake, puts a capper on the experience.

Lorenz Island Kuisine’s roots are immediately visible on its ceiling, where a Jamaican flag proudly hangs. A few more steps inside the warmly lit eatery and more roots begin to show. There’s the orange walls with green trim, and the smell of Jamaican food wafting from the open kitchen. There, the kitchen staff cooks curry goat and plates crispy, brown pieces of jerk chicken. Other dishes include oxtail, plantains, rice and beans, beef patties encased in flaky crust, and almond cake made with rum and topped with icing. Many of the dishes double as loveable characters in the eatery’s recipe book.
