The garage doors are broken in at Pimento Jamaican Kitchen, where erratic weather has forced staff to open and close them several times each day.
“The Jamaicans are learning what a Minnesota spring is like,” said co-owner Tomme Beevas.
He said customers are buying up Red Stripe beer, and they’re aiming to be the No. 1 seller in the country. (So far, they stand at No. 2 in Minnesota.)
He recommends checking for each day’s specials, which include curry goat meat marinated for 24 hours, the way Beevas’ grandmother made it. The menu also includes slow-roasted jerk pork, roast fish, house made sauces and sweet fried plantains.
“If you’re on Eat Street, you better bring the flavor,” Beevas said.
