Hipster Caribbean Vibes At Miss Lily’s
Restaurant and nightlife impresario Serge Becker (of La Esquina, Cafe Select and The Box) has done it again! He created yet another spot with a cool-ass vibe, and put a hipster spin on ethnic food. This time it’s Miss Lily’s in the West Village/Soho. The low-key, kitschy-chic resto specializes in modern Jamaican/Caribbean cuisine. The menu is filled with traditional Jamaican staples with a twist. The food is rich, flavorful and tasty.
Miss Lily’s is more than a restaurant, it’s a highly curated scene. The front room has a diner feel while the back room is more edgy. The walls are laced with reggae album covers and the corner houses a resident DJ spinning Reggae, Soca and Calypso.
I went to Miss Lily’s this past weekend and I was really digging the vibe. The apps and the soundtrack were the real winners here!
Cod Fish Fritters- These scrumptious bite-sized fish cakes were delish!
Hellshire Style Fried Whole Fish with Escoveitch Veggies- I was really hoping for more- it was bland and uninspiring.
SIP: Good menu filled with tropical brews and cocktails.
3/25/11 Addition- CHAT: We headed back to Miss Lily’s for late night eats and good beats. The DJ was killing it. It definitely turns into a jumping spot after midnight.
