The Food Sermon is a small counter-service spot serving Caribbean-influenced build-your-own rice bowls. Proteins include jerk chicken and braised lamb, and the panko-crusted salmon here is better than most of the $32 salmon entrees you’ll find at run-of-the-mill bistros around the city. Our favorite combination is the jerk chicken with brown rice, chickpeas, and spicy tomato sauce - it’s a huge portion, and at $13, it’s one of the best takeout lunch or dinner options in the neighborhood.
