The Islands

Located in Crown Heights, The Islands is a great pick for slow-cooked Caribbean classics — dishes like jerk chicken, curry goat and stewed ox-tail, all served in gigantic portions, accompanied with cabbage, coconut rice and peas. The jerk chicken is absurdly, outrageously good: fall-apart tender, quite fiery but perfectly balanced with a blend of sweet spices.
