If summer were a restaurant, it would be Imani. People seem to always be having the time of their lives at this Caribbean spot on the corner of Dekalb and Adelphi. Usually, you’ll hear reggae music blasting from their newly expanded outdoor patio, where almost every table is topped with glasses of rum punch. Most of the food is Jamaican like curry goat and jerk chicken wings, but they also do some mashup dishes like saltfish spring rolls and jerk ramen.
