Upscale and artsy, Rock Steady is loved by Atlanta’s West Indian community for its convivial space with dope vibes. Each work of art stems from the owners’ Caribbean and African travels. Meet and mingle over modern Nu Caribbean cuisine with Afro-expressionist wall art alongside a cultured mix of afro-beat and reggae music—and that is just the upstairs. Downstairs, you’ll find a chic and elegant dining room adorned with bold portraits of Lauren Hill and Grace Jones. The food, like the design, is an ode to the first generation Caribbeanite, a montage of cultures overlapping in a foreign space to form a new identity. On the menu, beef patties become beef empanadas, suya shrimp pairs with grits; oxtail is served with hash & eggs alongside griot and pikliz. Each inventive meal brings you an inviting taste of the Caribbean but in an adventurous new medium.
