About Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen

About Chubby's Jamaican Kitchen

Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen is a modern take on traditional Caribbean cuisine tempered with the warmth and vitality of Jamaica’s people and culture. Gusto 54 CEO and founder Janet Zuccarini and Chief Culture Officer Angela Lawrence co-founded the restaurant as a side endeavor. Chubby’s honors their friendship of more than 20 years, their love and admiration for the island’s cuisine, and all the wonderful Jamaican cooks they have come to know. They even gave the restaurant the moniker of a Jamaican cook, which stands for the satisfaction you have in your stomach after a tasty meal prepared at home.

Angela was tasked with turning their mutual vision into a reality. She relied on her enthusiasm for Jamaican food and her history to carefully create Chubby’s building design and guest experience, working closely with a close-knit team of collaborators and creators to ensure that every detail was filled with unforgettable memories.

Reviews

  1. The food was great, and the service and vibe were great. We tried the Cajun shrimp, jerk chicken, and sides. Peas and rice, fried plantain, and jerk fries, all more than met our expectations.
    Will definitely be back to try more menu items.
  1. Chubby’s lives up to its inclusion as a Michelin-recommended spot. All around everything was on point here. We were seated right away by the friendly host, and the service was quick and attentive. The vibe in the place is mellow, and great reggae music is playing.
