This casual Caribbean restaurant in Fort Green serves jerk chicken that we can’t currently remove from our dreams. Whether you get this chicken in wing form or as an entree, it’ll be covered in a smoky dry rub and doused with sticky, spicy sauce. Island Shack’s menu shows a range of influence, with everything from Jamaican oxtails and rice and peas to Trini-style roti and curry goat. Although the restaurant is currently waiting on their liquor license, it’s already a high-energy place to meet a date or a couple friends for a group dinner (and the scene will probably get even rowdier with rum cocktails in the mix).
