Lunch at Lexington Ave in The Hugh Jumieka was an amazing experience. I gotta say the food was Flavorfully. The aesthetic, atmosphere, was island vibes. Between the interior design lay out was authentically Jamaican in Manhattan. It definitely was a memorable moment the music dancehall as you wait to order your food . I definitely had a great time and will be going back to Jumieka.
My favorite dishes were the following VEGETABLE PATTIES was seasoned well and delicious. The VEGETABLE ROTI Roti Skin with Vegetable Medley was spectacular what a good meal. IZON food rates “Jumieka ” a ten for the proper service every one was kind and respectful, nine for the food. A seven for the design aesthetic and all the art on the walls, dancehall music. Head over to Jumieka for the unique Manhattan experience at The Hugh.
