Serving up a litany of Caribbean dishes packed with flavor such as plantain chips with guacamole, jerk chicken & fish tacos, Imani is a spot you have to visit whenever you’re in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, or live in the borough. Executive Chef and part owner Chef Banta, has done an amazing job curating a menu that brings so many flavors of the Caribbean to life. The staff: aces. Food presentation: beautiful. Oh, and they have a soca/dancehall playlist going on that’ll have you moving in your seat. On summer nights, the outdoor seating is a perfectly quaint place to linger. I’ve got real love for this place: the great food, the brownstone vibes, and the Caribbean joy.
