Like Rigatoni For Roti

Okay, so the Caribbean chef cooks Italian -- it's still bene

A terrific sweet potato purée, accented with nutmeg and allspice, gets wrapped in large, sailor cap-shaped ravioli and plunked in a pool of smooth, sage-flecked cream sauce. And while the one island-influenced entrée, roast pork raviolini covered in black bean sauce, was just fine too, it served mostly to remind me of my dashed plans for dasheen.

It's a classy joint with lots of flavor, even if the Caribbean spice is missing
