BEST JAMAICAN/CARIBBEAN RESTAURANT
Rocksteady Jamaican Bistro
2399 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton; 561-465-3167; RocksteadyJamaicanBistro.com
Curried goat, vinegary whole fried snapper escovitch, oxtail stew, ackee and jerk chicken are island staples found in many South Florida eateries, but too often they are served in bare-bone cafeterias with chafing dishes and Styrofoam containers. At Rocksteady Jamaican Bistro in Boca Raton, chef and owner Duane Morgan provides a comfortable and sophisticated bistro setting where the Jamaican flavors are balanced and not overwhelmed by spice.
