Fisherman’s Dawta
407 Atlantic Ave., nr. Bond St., Boerum Hill718-855-7555
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.)
