Caribbean Restaurant Week NYC

Restaurant Week NY is one of the most foodie events in the city. Did you know there is a Caribbean Restaurant Week hosted each year during Caribbean American Heritage Month?

What is New York Caribbean Restaurant Week?

Founded in June 2014, Eat Caribbean is a week for New York City residents and visitors to enjoy authentic Caribbean cuisine. Participating dine-in and take-out Caribbean Restaurants in NYC offer prix fixe menus/specials throughout the five boroughs.

Think the same prix fixe benefits from NYC Restaurant Week with a Caribbean twist. Not knowing about this event at all, I reached out to food-loving friends to share their recommendations. If you’re looking for some great Caribbean food in the NYC area, here are some of the best restaurants that are participating.

Chicken with Rum & Raisin Waffles at Suede NYC


Sugarcane is one of my favorite Trinidadian Restaurants in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The vibes are good and the food is amazing. They’re not cheap with portions either. I definitely recommend the Stew Chicken and a Jumbie (Hennessy and Sorrel) as a drink. Sugarcane has a sit-down area for lunch or dinner and a bar for happy hour and light bites.

Negril Village

This was actually the first “traditional” Caribbean restaurant that I’ve been to. My best friend and I love it and have dined here several times. Popular dishes are the salmon crab cakes and jerk shrimp. I’ve enjoyed their oxtail, stew chicken, and curry goat entrees as well. A bonus for this restaurant is its lounge on the lower level, offering sounds of Reggae, Soca, Hip-Hop, and R&B.

Suede Restaurant

Suede is a Caribbean restaurant in Brooklyn and offers “Modern Caribbean Cuisine” with popular appetizers like Oxtail pizza. A plus for this restaurant is that you can eat for free on your birthday. Reservations must be placed in advance and your birthday must be in that week.
