Best Upscale Jamaican in Brooklyn - 2000
Brawta - CLOSED
It's practically spawned its own block-long urban renewal. A decor that blends Africa and the Caribbean and food that's straight out of Jamaica have made this corner spot a standby for years. Fare like jerk chicken and curried goat may not have the authentic bite of the real deal on the other side of town, but the daters and business people that fill this spot want more than just Scotch Bonnet heat and allspice. Brawta gives it to them, and serves up island cuisine with a style and flair that keep 'em coming back for more.
