Air Jamaica posters on bright-pink walls beckon you to the islands via beautifully lush landscapes, but the food at Errol and Carol Whyte's cheery downtown restaurant lets you know you don't have to get on a plane to enjoy authentic Caribbean cooking. We mean the real deal: oxtail, cow foot, curry goat -- this place ain't for timid nibblers. Jerk pork and chicken are spicy, not fiery, and juicy within; chicken in yellow curry sauce and fish stewed and splashed with brown sauce are worthwhile as well. Lunch and dinner entrées, nearly all under $8, come with iceberg-tomato salad, a side of coconut-infused rice, and a couple of slices of fried green plantain. Some of the same meals are available for only $5 during a lunchtime special running from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The service is friendly, not fast, so take slow sips of refreshing homemade island juices like soursop, fruit punch, Irish moss, or the most famous island juice -- Red Stripe.
