Janet's Jerk Stop is the place to go for Jamaica food in Poughkeepsie. I have known Janet for years I first met her at the culinary at an event we both participated in. A few years ago she had to relocate from s Academy Street and I did not see her as much.
This Tuesday I was at a closing on Mill Street and I asked the attorney's for direction to the closest Jamaican restaurant and they mentioned Janet's on Academy Street, I thought they must have been talking about a few years ago but no! Janet had return 3 weeks ago at a location across from the old location.
I knew my clients would love the Janet treatment so off we went. She was delighted to see us and even though what we wanted was not on the day's menu she said "No Problem" and set about cooking us Ackee and Salt fish. Okay if you don't know what that is I suspect you have not been to Jamaica, but now you know you can discover it at Janet's.
The resturant decor was very pleasant, African and Jamican Artwork on the way and nice space between tables.
So what I am going to do next is to show you what the inside of the restaurant looks like and a glimpse of some of the food.
