Area 501 is possibly the city's only place to get Caribbean food, specialty rum drinks and genuine, vibrant, island-vibe conviviality. Dishes are made with a blend of tropical tastes and multicultural influences; aromatic, sweet and tart, piquant and mild citrus flavors, like traditional jerk chicken, rice & peas, Caribbean fish stew, spicy chickpea curry, and cassava pone. They've got vegetarian and vegan options too.
