Glady’s Jerk Center is from the same people behind Glady’s (a Caribbean restaurant we like in Crown Heights), but this place is counter-service, and it’s a little bigger. It has two interconnected rooms filled with tables, and there’s also a full bar where you can get a cocktail, frozen or otherwise. The menu is pretty short, with a few things like jerk chicken, curry goat, and oxtail stew, as well as some sides like rice and plantains. Stop by the next time you don’t want to cook for yourself, or come with a bunch of friends when you want to eat in a tropical-themed space with loud music.
Glady’s Jerk Center is permanently closed.
