Jamaica in a Box Dinner for 4

This taste of Jamaica starts with Miss Lily’s world-famous jerk chicken, which takes three days to brine, marinate, and slow-cook, and it’s served along with mango chutney, cucumber escovitch, rice & peas, jerk corn, and old-fashioned banana pudding!

The bright and sunny Miss Lily’s opened on New York’s bustling West Houston Street in 2011, and was immediately hailed as one of the best Jamaican restaurants in the entire city. With checkered floors, vinyl booths, and walls decked out with album covers spanning 50 years of Jamaican music history, it’s a fun and welcoming restaurant and a must-visit for anyone looking for a true taste of Jamaica.
