description/

This Jamaican-themed jerk shack faced a tough battle before the Community Board, partly waged by a prominent neighbor, Vogue's Anna Wintour, who was concerned about the noise it might generate. Finally allowed to open, the small nightlife venue is strictly monitored by a doorman and has an acoustic tile ceiling for soundproofing. Since it's co-owned by nightlife king Serge Becker (The Box, Joe's Pub), Wintour was right to have her concerns, but Miss Lily's is actually a sweet little restaurant with a Formica bar serving up lots of Red Stripes and baskets of savory ackee dip with plantain chips. Other Jamaican specialties (via chef Bradford Thompson of Negril's Rockhouse Hotel) include jerk chicken, a jerk pork burger and codfish fritters.
