The people and food at MCG Grand Cafe make us want to set Google Flights notifications for Grenada right away. This small Caribbean spot on Nostrand doesn’t have much on the walls besides a few Grenadian flags, but the very friendly staff and chef will come make small talk if you look bored. The menu ranges from jerk chicken wings to lots of seafood dishes, and we particularly like the jerk salmon with mango salsa (which comes with rice and peas that help sop up the extra sauce). Keep this place in mind for takeout and delivery, too.
