NYC - The Official Guide

The Islands


Drive or walk by too quickly, and you’ll miss The Islands—a tiny, unassuming restaurant sandwiched between a grocery store and an apartment building. The Islands' oversized portions of Jamaican food make it a popular stop—but there are just four tables, which means there may be a wait. Patrons rave about the mac and cheese appetizer (not for those on a diet), jerk chicken, calypso shrimp and mouthwatering oxtail. There’s good value here, too: meals come in sizes small and large, with the small often big enough to feed two people.
