Pearl’s is on a quiet side street in Williamsburg, but it’s a Caribbean party in here and it’s one of the places we plan on hanging out regularly this summer. A restaurant from the team behind Sweet Chick, this place serves authentic stuff like accra (salt cod fritters) and shark bakes (sandwiches made from traditional fry bread, and yes, shark meat), but you can also get jerk ribs and braised oxtail and plenty of island-y cocktails. On a warm night, head here with a few people and eat on their excellent back patio. Or come for an outdoor bottomless brunch ($15 for an hour of all you can drink).
