Eating authentically prepared food lets you taste the very essence of a country and draws far fewer angry glares than chewing on its national flag.

Owner and executive chef Janet Davis wields extensive culinary experience, paying homage to her Jamaican heritage with a menu brimming with jerk meats and seafood with Caribbean flavors. Diners can share appetizers from the sit-down menu, such as pan-seared Caribbean crab cakes ($10) or the jam-down jerk wings ($7), which the chef coats in jerk seasoning before baking and grilling to even out tan lines. A bevy of richly seasoned entrées bursts from the kitchen with the passion of a scorned soap-opera character, with options that include Ocho Rios oxtails simmered in piquant spices and piled with scallions and scotch-bonnet peppers ($18). Rasta Man roast fish teems with callaloo, okra, and water crackers ($22), before dulcet desserts—such as coconut-encrusted rum cake ($6)—occupy needy sweet teeth. Tangerine walls with bright green accents border Scotch Bonnets’ interior as ivory tablecloths shimmy to syncopated calypso beats.
