The Jerk Shack
Celebrated chef Nicola Blaque has closed the original, just off Commerce Street, and opened a bright and shiny, order-at-the-counter location near SeaWorld. Dishing out jerk chicken and ribs to a loyal crowd, Blaque proves that her small-batch philosophy is holding up just fine. The regular fried chicken is a treat too, and “Likkle Tings” like the fried cauliflower and caramelized plantains are great add-ons (but don’t skip the masala-seasoned sweet potato fries). A mix-and-match menu makes it easy to serve all manner of diners, from vegetarians to full-on “bring me meat” eaters.
