The Islands -- as great as ever...

Peter | Feb 7, 2007 06:01 PM

Just had a great meal at The Islands on Washington Ave near Eastern Parkway (across from the Brooklyn Museum) and wanted to remind everyone how great this hole in the wall is.

Jerk Chicken, Oxtail, Pepper Pot Soup, Bread Pudding... all great Jamaican staples. Best of all is the utterly bizarre little space and the wonderfully charming woman who runs the entire operation.

Oh yeah, you usually have to wait a bit so come with a laid-back islands attitude and if you want to sit, make sure you're relatively spry. The "staircase" to the seating is more akin to a ship's ladder. ;)
