A Jamaican style dinner, located on the far end of Greenwich Village, is best described as ‘a Caribbean oasis in the middle of downtown Manhattan’. That’s what Miss Lily’s Restaurant is all about!
To start, Miss Lily’s restaurant is a project by Paul Salmon, the designer Serge Becker, and the Jakupi brothers (Binn and Genc). Moreover, they are also known for having been an integral part of New York City’s most exclusive nightclubs including Bungalow 8, 1 Oak, and The Box.
Inspired in the diverse roots of Jamaican cuisine the kitchen offers delicacies like jerk chicken, escovitch fish, oxtail and curried goat seasoned with scotch bonnet peppers and fiery jerk spices.
Plus, Melvin Major Jr., a NY juice guru, runs their organic juice bar.
The décor is clearly inspired in the Jamaican lifestyle and vibe! Moreover, you’ll see references of hair saloons, music shops, small food joints and even bakeries! A mix-n-match of the best that this vibrant-hot-captivating culture has to share! In addition, the music is great too, so be sure to come prepared!
In short, Miss Lily’s is an island vacation in the middle of a busy city, plus hosting several cool people from the fashion industry like Giovanna Battaglia and hype New Yorkers.
Of course, their outdoor seating if obviously the most coveted place in the restaurant!
Lastly, they have a second location that is pretty cool in the East Village, right at the corner of Tompkins Square Park, called Miss Lily’s 7A Café. It’s also a pretty low-key place, with a great outdoor area, perfect for the hotter months!
