Common mentioned us as one of his fave spots to eat in BK! Thanks for the Love!
Fisherman’s Dawta (407 Atlantic Ave.) – “My favorite Caribbean food. I used to go Brawta Caribbean Café which was my friend Jennefier’s spot, but she just closed it down and opened up Fisherman’s Dawta. Ate there the other night and it’s excellent.”

Conversations about where to find good Jamaican food in New York more often than not led to Brawta, only to be concluded by, “but it’s now closed.” So the foodie in me knew I had to make the trip to Fisherman’s Dawta after hearing that the much discussed grub had returned, only a mere block away from where Brawta was. “Everywhere we would go people would say, ‘what happened to Brawta?,’” Ms. Ewers says, explaining the simple rationale behind cutting her retirement short. “I love what I do,” she says. “So after careful thought Kamilah and I got together and started this venture.”Click the above link to read the full article.
The name is an homage to her 98-year old father, a fisherman and boat builder. “Being back home in Jamaica for those two years and being around my dad and the other fishermen inspired [it],” explains Ms. Ewers, as a customer walks in. Seeing Ewers, that same customer makes the connection with Brawta, exclaiming “I am so happy I found you!”

Jennefier Ewers’s zesty jerk chicken comes with a generous mound of rice, steamed cabbage, and a serious Brooklyn pedigree: The cheery reincarnation of the chef’s previous venture, Brawta Caribbean Cafe, is one block east of the original and just as delicious. The menu is small and changes daily, service—by Ewers’s daughter, Kamilah—is counter style and warm, and the sweet, spicy ginger beer hits the spot. While the simple storefront is clean and comfortable, it seems misguided not to park yourself on the umbrella-and-leaf-shaded deck out back, which, on a steamy Brooklyn afternoon, lends a tropical flair to the proceedings. (CECS: Jerk chicken, $10, plus ginger beer, $4: total: $14.)
