Come and join the communal table of 12 as we pass around platters, of flavorful, colorful, spicy dishes from Jamaica and Trinidad! Come alone or with friends and make new friends in this very intimate setting. If you are new to these dinners, these take place in a loft in West Oakland, in a room where the kitchen and dining room are together, so you can watch all the dishes created in front of you. The chef is even the server so there is no alienation in this model of food production and service.
