Larger appetites can find plates that highlight jerk-spiced meats and seafood including chicken and salmon and coconut curry shrimp served platter-style with coconut rice, sweet plantains, and a side salad. The weekend brunch menu offers Caribbean classics like curry crab and dumplings, an oxtail grilled cheese, jerk chicken hash, and a traditional ackee and saltfish.

Sprouts has opened the doors to its new Homestead location as it continues to grow across the South Florida region. Headquartered in Phoenix, the grocery chain is one of the fastest-growing retailers in the nation, best known for its selection of healthy products and presentation of fresh produce at the heart of the store. The company says its Food Rescue program will be in full force at the Homestead location — meaning the new store will donate to Feeding South Florida groceries that are no longer fit for sale but remain fine for consumption and just as nutrient-rich. Daily 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
