Miss Lily’s Restaurant, Greenwich Village/ West Village, NYC

 

Miss Lily's on Urbanspoon

 

 

Food: ☆☆☆

Service: ☆☆☆½

Ambiance: ☆☆

Cost: $$$

Must try: Ackee Dip And Plantain Chips , Jerk Chicken

 

Jerk chicken does not get better this!

 

 

Miss Lily’s is my new Mecca for Caribbean food in New York City.

The menu offers modern Jamaican food, which maintains its authentic roots. Chef Bradford Thompson is French trained and has racked up accolades from Food and Wine and James Beard for best chef. All his skills are evident in just one dish – the Jerk chicken! I have never had a bird more tender yet spiced and grilled to perfect crispness.

I really enjoyed everything I tried there. The plantain chips with Akki dip was fabulous and the curried goat with roti was yummy too, albeit a bit watery for my taste. The hot sauces were really spicy and added all the more to the fun and flavor of this wonderful Caribbean oasis!

Multifaceted in its structure – Miss Lily’s weaves in and out of avatars in its Houston Street location. There are three facets to this spot that you can enjoy.

 

 

One is the Miss Lily’s bar/ restaurant part. Then there Miss Lily’s Variety & Bake Shop and Melvin’s Juice Box. This is a West Indian Boutique, record store, casual café, bakery and juice bar all rolled into one. The variety store is home to Radio Lily which is Miss Lily’s Internet radio station where a DJ is live streaming Reggae beats. This creates what they refer to as a “cultural social club”.

Basically what is – is a really cool space to hang out at with great eats at arms reach!

 

Here is some of what we ate:

  

Ginger Beer

 

 

Jaquitos

 

 

Ackee Dip And Plantain Chips

 

 

Jerk Chicken

 

Curried Goat

 

 

Roti and Rice and Beans
