The Breadfruit, a cheerful, casual Jamaican restaurant, fits right in with other independent eateries that have cropped up on the sleepy periphery of downtown's bustling core. Owner Dwayne Allen, originally from Jamaica, considers the restaurant an extension of his kitchen at home, which means customers are treated to the same succulent, spicy jerk chicken, fragrant curried tofu, and moist escovitch fish that he's been making for friends all these years. Vegans and health-conscious diners will find plenty of options here, while those with a sweet tooth will love not only the desserts, but also unique imported drinks like Ting (grapefruit soda) and spicy ginger beer.
