Reggae tunes, a subtle island vibe and authentic yet affordable Jamaican cuisine is the goal at this lounge named after a Bob Marley tune. The jukebox and ornate wooden bar from the space's previous bar, Sak's, remain intact, joined by bamboo-trimmed furniture and reggae record covers to lend a subtle island feel. In the kitchen, Chris Douglas, a born-and-raised Jamaican who will be cooking professionally outside of the islands for the first time here, cooks up classics like jerk chicken on the grill, curried goat and oxtail served with plantains, rice and beans (or peas, as they call 'em in Jamaica). Look out for some American classics with an island twist, such as a well-spiced mac 'n' cheese made from a family recipe. Think warm-weather thoughts with a Jamaican rum punch or the singature Mr. Brown, a mix of Kahlua, Baileys and cognac. On the beer front, order bottles of Red Stripe or a smattering of Ukrainian beers kept on board for Sak's regulars.
