Nicki, Chef-Owner of the Jamaican Jerk Hut, graduated from the Culinary Institute.  Her last position before opening the Jerk Hut was in the kitchen at Philadelphia's Four Seasons Hotel.  Quite a change from the grandeur of the Four Seasons.

Jerk grilled chicken, pork, shrimp and snapper with an extra kick of hot.  For the more meek of palate, sweet and sour chicken, Dunn's River BBQ Chicken and Negril Garlic Shrimp.  I'm a big fan of Niki's curries, especially the Curry Shrimp.  For starters, Beef, Chicken or Vegetable Patties - warm, filled turnovers.

The sides are great too.  Jamaican Cabbage, Jasmine Rice and Fried Plantains.  Desserts, all home baked.  The pound cakes, either coconut or lemon, are especially recommended.
