The Edge is the kind of place you wish you had below your apartment, instead of the artisanal vape shop or bodega you only use to buy single rolls of toilet paper. This is a cozy all-day spot with low ceilings, red brick, and a handful of tables, and (maybe because it’s run by two sisters) it feels like eating in someone’s home. The menu is a mix of Jamaican stuff (jerk chicken), British dishes (fish & chips), and American classics (burgers), and while they do dinner here, it’s an especially good place for brunch, which they serve daily.
