Jennefier Ewers’s zesty jerk chicken comes with a generous mound of rice, steamed cabbage, and a serious Brooklyn pedigree: The cheery reincarnation of the chef’s previous venture, Brawta Caribbean Cafe, is one block east of the original and just as delicious. The menu is small and changes daily; service—by Ewers’s daughter, Kamilah—is counter-style and warm; and the sweet, spicy ginger beer hits the spot. While the simple storefront is clean and comfortable, it seems misguided not to park yourself on the umbrella-and-leaf-shaded deck out back, which, on a steamy Brooklyn afternoon, lends a tropical flair to the proceedings.
