Even in a city filled with authentic Caribbean cuisine, suburbanites flock to "the Breeze" for fine fakin'-Jamaican food. Sometimes the wait is more than an hour - not necessarily a problem if you spend it drinking a mojito made with fresh-squeezed sugarcane out on the huge outdoor bar deck that comes complete with a stunning view of Kendall Drive. Servers here aren't waiters; they're "tour guides" who wear garish tropical-print shirts. There are faux tropical plants galore, and Buster Poindexter's "Hot Hot Hot" is on constant loop. Try appetizers such as chicken with tostones - this restaurant's surprisingly addictive version of nachos - and jumbo coconut shrimp. Entrée standouts include a leafy, crunchy, and flavorful salmon tostada; creamy calypso shrimp linguine; and guava-barbecue-sauce-glazed West Indies baby-back ribs. For dessert, give the mousse and brownie concoction Chocolate Island a whirl, or sip a strawberry-swirled ultimate piña colada.
