Sugarcane

Chef Phoebe Blake brings Caribbean cooking with a Trinidadian influence to Prospect Heights and gets rave reviews for her seafood, especially the sugarcane shrimp skewers and curried shrimp. Owned by Chef Phoebe’s sister, Charmaine, and Gaspa Rodriguez, the restaurant’s menu features many West Indian dishes, including a Jamaican favorite, jerk chicken. Diners can choose from delicacies like rum-and-thyme-marinated stew chicken and soursop flan. Since Sugarcane’s opening in 2003, patrons have been clamoring for the callaloo, made with okra and taro root leaves, which is Trinidad’s national dish. For dessert, Sugarcane is “famous” for coconut bread pudding with coconut cream anglaise sauce, according to Gumbs. Sugarcane hosts live steel pan jazz performances and a healthy amount of hip-hop and calypso. This restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner, and Sundays for lunch and dinner. Closed Mondays.
