Glady's Jerk Center
Where we've featured it
Glady’s Jerk Center is from the same people behind Glady’s 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 frozen (or non-frozen) cocktail. The Caribbean 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.
Counter-service places are, by definition, casual - which means if you plan a dinner at one, it’ll make you look casual as well. And if you’ve ever seen someone leaning on a car with their hands in their pockets, you know that it’s cool to look casual. So take someone to Glady’s Jerk Center. It’s a counter-service Caribbean spot in Prospect Lefferts Gardens with loud music, a full bar, and two big interconnected dining rooms.
