Dawn D'Aguilar graduated from a pair of Wall Street lunch carts to this underlit, bare-bones garment-district joint, where Bob Marley's on a muted video loop, Steel Pulse is on the sound system, and the powerful flavors of Jamaica emanate from the (sometimes plodding) kitchen. "Cha-cha" chicken, tender morsels of hacked meat, are swaddled in a mildly spicy sauce studded with pineapples and onion; crispy codfish fritters come with a fiery dip so popular D'Aguilar's planning to bottle it. And truly spectacular homemade drinks (subtle sorrel, frothily sweet soursop, and bitter mauby among them) soothe the slow burn.
