This place has been boarded up with flies buzzing around the doorway for as long as I've been working here (7 months) and now all of a sudden there was a guy today handing out menus and the flies are gone. It's at 1803 Webster at 19th, and I assume it is sort of Caribbean cuisine, though I've never had that so I don't know what it is like. The menu looks intriquing, with Chicken, Fish, Steak all served with rice, beans, and vegies, ribs, beef brochettes, and breakfast fare as well. Prices $6-7 for entrees and they have fried plantains among other things as a side. Never had those before. The architecture looks like it might be pretty cool inside, though I didn't look in.

Anyone tried this place yet? I'm not sure how long it's been open, but it can't be that long. Their phone on the menu is 510-465-5658. I'm going to check it out soon myself and wouldn't mind knowing what to expect a bit. It's a big event when places open around here in Oakland as it isn't the most vibrant of downtowns.
