Located Inside the Market House and open Brunch/Lunch/Dinner: Sunday -Thursday 10:30 am to 6pm; Friday 10:30am-4pm. Closed Saturdays.

Jamaicway was recognized as "Best Comeback" for a Scene Writers' Choice Award in 2011-here's what they had to say...

Jamaicaway has been a reliably delightful lunch spot since Ouida Bradshaw opened it in the Farmers' Market in 2003. A cafeteria lineup offers a bounty of Caribbean comfort food: jerk and curry chicken, oxtails and goat, excellent greens and some welcome vegetarian entrées. But last year's Great Flood hit the Bradshaws hard, and financing to reopen was difficult to secure. In a show of devotion, patrons gathered for a Save Jamaicaway benefit party in December. Further help came in the unlikely form of Food Network celebrity Guy Fieri. The episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives where he visits Jamaicaway has been airing occasionally since December, generating curious new customers with each broadcast. Jamaicaway reopened earlier this year, and at a recent Night Market, the line of eager diners stretched out the door all evening long. DANA KOPP FRANKLIN
