There are egg-shaped swings and cocktails served in mugs that look like Easter Island heads, the island-theme at this Caribbean spot in Bergen-Lafayette doesn’t feel forced. That’s partially because the strong drinks, reggae on the speakers, and everyday Happy Hour keep it relaxed, and also because they’re not trying to make up for forgettable food. Everything from bakes - sandwiches with jerk chicken or short rib inside fried dough - at brunch, to the curry goat with roti at dinner, would be fantastic no matter where it was served.
