Formerly Bev's, Jamaican in Prospect Park South

JackS | Apr 11, 200807:08 PM

Bev's is/was a Jamaican take-out joint on Church Avenue between Westminster and Argyle. It was always forbidding, no one ate there, and the few times that I went in to get food, they acted like it was rude to do so.

A couple of weeks ago they seemed to close, but there was a sign out front saying that they were renovating.

The renovation is complete, and it appears to be run by different management. On one of the awnings the sign that says "Bev's" was scratched out and instead it looked like some initials, I forget what, B and P or something like that.

Anyway, I checked it out tonight for some take-out. Unlike its prior incarnation, the new place actually had people eating there (they have some tables) and ordering food there. Good start. Even better, my holy grail for Jamaican food was on the menu -- jerk pork! I ordered a medium dinner of that and oxtail for my wife. We both enjoyed our dishes. The jerk pork was appropriately spicy and flavorful, the oxtail tender. The sides that came with the dinners were so-so; iceberg lettuce and flavorless tomato, with a little plantain and good rice. Glad to see that it's changed. I just need to get the name of the place straight.
