Yes, Jamaican on St. Patty's Day!!!

There's no limit since there's plenty of seating in the market. The food is AMAZING! I scheduled a little later for those who go to church or like to sleep in.

For those not interested in Jamaican, there's also AM@FM, Green Asia, Swagruha Indian, Chicago Gyro, B&C Market BBQ, El Burrito Mexican, Bella Nashville (wood fired pizza) and The Original Nooley's (Cajun) served in the market.


Serves great Jamaican food - jerk chicken (choose mild or "authentic"), Ackee-N-Saltfish, goat, mutton, oxtail (yum) and talapia (or whole Red Snapper) escovich. Veggies include: fried plantains (my fav), sweet potatoes, a variety of greens (collard, mustard, callaloo). They are also very vegetarian friendly with Veggie Fri Chikn with Mango Chutney Sauce, BBQ portobello mushrooms, curry tofu, etc.

All entrees (Meat or Vegetarian) include a choice of any 2 side items, and complimentary Jonny Cake or Cornbread. Don't forget to try the bammy (if available). The Menu can be found at:  http://www.jamaicawaycatering.com/index.html#/restaurantmenu

Save room for dessert and coffee, there's also Buttercake Babe's and Randy's Famous Cheesecake. And walk it off through the market, pick up some veggies and shop Shreeji's International Market and Wild & Local.

    I had ox tail for the first time and loved it! My younger sister now finds me repulsive :-) Everyone was so friendly and nice. I had a great day!

    Hi Rose!
    Because of the "no limit" seating availability, can my husband attend as a guest?

    February 21, 2013

    • Rose L.

      Absolutely! Invite anyone and everyone.
