In the city, sometimes its difficult to grab some time and relax. New York, which as we know, has relentless energy and verve, sometimes seems a million miles away from the chilled out vibe of the Caribbean.

However, head over to Lafayette Ave, opposite the BAM, and open the doors to La Caye, an atmospheric, yet trendy Haitian restaurant in Brooklyn. Right from the start, you will get a taste of the vibe of La Caye, from the chairs and tables that spill out on to the pavements, to the activity and buzz that can be seen through the large, inviting windows. As well as serving up some of the most delicious Haitian dishes in the neighborhood (we’ve been reliably informed that the Legumes D’Aubergine is a delight to eat and that the Poulet en Sauce was to die for), La Caye has an excellent bar with a good range of drinks to enjoy.

La Caye prides itself on customer service, and in showing people true Haitian hospitality. Restaurants in Brooklyn often nail it when it comes to a warm welcome and great service, but La Caye brings a little extra Caribbean personality to the table. Guests are assured a great ambiance and will find themselves kicking back and chilling out for far longer than they originally planned! Perhaps the best thing about

La Caye, which really helps it to stand out from other restaurants in Brooklyn, is the excellent events that they host, on a weekly basis. Jazz nights are a regular event, and La Caye present a wide variety of artists, from traditional Jazz bands to exciting Latin Jazz sounds. For more information on what’s on, simply phone up (+1 718-858-4160) or pop in and ask about the famous ‘Sip n Chat’ evenings; for the perfect opportunity to enjoy some fine Haitian food, quaff some drinks with friends, and enjoy the excellent music.

If you’re looking for something a bit fresh and new to tickle your tastebuds, and you require something different from your restaurants in Brooklyn, don’t delay, head on down to La Caye, and indulge in some fine dining and soothing Jazz sounds, Haitian style.
