Negril Village (Greenwich Village)

Negril Village is one of those restaurants that I first visited during my early years in NYC. However, I have not been back in years and somewhat forgotten that I liked this place. Then a “friend of a friend” wanted to have birthday drinks/dinner at Negril Village and I was eager to re-taste all the lovely Caribbean dishes that I had forgotten about. Perplexed as to why I stayed away so long, I savored every delicious bite. My only regret was that I wasn’t extremely hungry, but luckily leftovers make great lunch.

The Food: The food is always well seasoned, delicious and fresh. During my last visit, I really enjoyed the jerk wings the best. My friend swears by the snapper and orders this frequently. The Bahamian Mussels (scotch bonnet and coconut broth) was delicious as well.

Ambiance: Negril Village offers Caribbean music and a fun atmosphere. Overall, expect to have a good time. The downstairs lounge area is“live”. You can eat and dance, all within 20 feet of each other. The music is pretty good and coupled with the strong drinks; you will not regret your experience. Eating upstairs offers a more laid back yet fun experience.

The Service: I won’t go into details, but during my last visit we had a slight “misunderstanding” with the restaurant/manager. Nevertheless, the manager handled things in a very respectful and professional manner and even threw in a couple of free drink for our troubles.

Happy Hour: Discounted Island Specialty Drinks (delicious)
