Exposed brick, bare bulbs, and salmon beurre blanc all suggest ­bistro; the mostly Bob Marley soundtrack, tender curry goat, and coconutty rice and peas shout Caribbean kitchen. However you categorize it, the breezy corner spot has a homey vibe and a small but appealing menu that covers island classics like jerk chicken and braised oxtail. Particular care is taken with accompaniments like sautéed cabbage and fried plantains, and although the plates are hefty and fully accessorized, you shouldn’t neglect the sides. It’s a rare mac ’n’ cheese that can claim both a burnished crust and a curdy interior, and soft, smashed “stew pumpkin” shows the winter squash’s savory side. The lonely bar awaits the arrival of the beer-and-wine license; until then, thoroughly refreshing mint-flecked pineapple iced tea will have to suffice.
