Bringing my son to U of Rochester in a week and a half. Thought maybe there'd be a good Jamaican restaurant since it's a decent sized city. (We have nothing authentic near Appleton, WI.) Maybe if I could have some delicious food to remind me of home - it will ease the pain of leaving my "baby" so far away? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Reggae Jam Restaurant & Bakery on Jefferson Avenue.......not a great neighborhood, but great authentic food. Rochester just had their CariFest (all things Caribbean) and their food was outstanding. Leaving your "baby" is tough, I did it last year. Rochester is a pretty cool city...and U of R is a fantastic school.....hope this helps :-)
Jefferson Ave is actually not very far from the U of R campus (no more than a couple of miles), but like I said, it is not a great neighborhood, so I would suggest going during the day :-) Just do not confuse it with Jefferson Road if you use a GPS!
