For authentic Caribbean cooking, head to this casual old-school lunch spot in a former 18th-century stable on Back Street. The brick-and-wood dining room has windows looking onto the street and a comfortable feel. Look for classic island dishes with an emphasis on seafood, especially lobster and fresh-caught fish. Conch comes in a variety of preparations, from curried conch to conch Creole to conch fritters. You can make a genuine West Indies meal out of the sides alone, which include fungi (cornmeal grits), peas and rice, fried plantains, and island coleslaw.
