If you can’t make it to a region of the world where the ocean water is clearer than the stuff in your Brita, have some jerk “chicken” or chickpea curry at Ital Kitchen. This BYOB Carribean spot is covered in wooden masks, hanging plants, and mix match chairs under two-top tables, which makes it feel like a beach shack in the French West Indies. Grab a seat here, or if the weather’s nice, walk straight to the big back patio and order a few dishes from the entirely vegan and vegetarian menu.
