Enjoy Jamaican Staples and Laid-back Jazz in Flatbush
Fisherman's Cove is a nook for authentic, better than above-average jerk chicken and Jamaican delicacies with a comprehensive menu that includes tender jerk chicken, oxtail, and curry goat—all with sides of warm, steamy rice and peas, plantains, and savory cabbage. The flavors of the food and the hustling, homey feel of the place will transport you to the warm Caribbean. Big portions mean you get to load up on gooey mac and cheese, chicken, and sweet, tasty plantains in the generous heaps they deserve. For a sweeter sauce, try the flavorful Stew Chicken. It’s the perfect place to dig in and forget you’re smack in the middle of NYC.
When your bellies are full and satisfied, head over to Brooklyn Jazz and Sports Club to unwind over some coolly casual live jazz and classic, cheap drinks that’ll get you to kick back, relax, and enjoy the tunes. They also make a mean Rum Punch that’ll really hit the spot after that jerk chicken. It’s a spot where you’ll find locals lounging in the dark, and you can feel at ease tucking yourselves into a corner and canoodling over your drinks while the music swirls around you. Low-key and laid-back, it’s where you want to be on a date night.
