Listen, before you dive headfirst into the warm waters of the weekend, ask yourself one question:
“Have I consumed my daily quota of rum-spiked sugarcane drinks?”
If no, please proceed directly to Zest, a place for sipping those very drinks, as well as eating conch from Cindy Hutson of Ortanique on the Mile fame. It’s open right now in Downtown, here’s the menu, and here’s the slideshow.
Oh, and if yes, well… congrats on getting life right.
It’s about time someone turned a corner of Downtown into a breezy island retreat. The kind of spot where you can kick back and partake of some refreshing libations while gazing at a living plant wall from your perch at an indoor/outdoor bar.
You’ll abate the hunger beast here with fish dip adorned with breadfruit chips, followed by plates of cast-iron-charred calamari and root-beer-braised pork belly.
Oh, and you’ll want to cap the whole affair off with the apple pie à la mode with cheddar cheese whipped cream.
