Taste of the Caribbean
At Taste of the Caribbean, owners Carlene Comrie and Dwayne Blake give the Central District an authentic taste of Jamaica and its vibrant culture. Carlene partnered with Dwayne in 2013 to open Taste of the Caribbean because they wanted to open a restaurant that celebrated their Jamaican heritage. Taste of the Caribbean showcases Jamaican culture in many ways from the relaxed and stress-free atmosphere to lively music and soul-comforting food. Carlene’s vision was to create a hub that weaves the Caribbean community together and gives people a sense of what it’s like to sit in your grandma’s kitchen in Jamaica, offering delicious dishes like oxtail, jerk chicken, curried goat, and fried plantains.
