Get It Inn Island Cuisine, a new Jamaican bar and restaurant, has opened its doors in Locust Point.
The restaurant took over the former home of Sweet Caroline’s at 1401 E. Clement St. Sweet Caroline’s closed in October, and Get It Inn replaced it in mid-November.
The Jamaican hangout is owned by wife-and-husband duo Cassandra and James Samuels. Cassandra Samuels said they searched for space for about a year before finding a fit in the former Sweet Caroline’s space. The couple wanted to open a Jamaican restaurant and felt Locust Point was a good fit because the neighborhood lacked diverse dining options.
“Everyone would love the Jamaican cuisine,” she said.
With items such as oxtail, jerk chicken and goat curry, the menu offers a range of Jamaican dishes with prices from $2.50 to $17. Both of the restaurant’s chefs hail from Jamaica, Samuels said. The bar also offers draft beer from six taps as well as bottled beer, rum punch and other cocktails.
Baltimore-based food writer and personality Allison Robicelli has spent the past two days firing off tweets in response to sexual harassment and abuse allegations levied this week against celebrity chef Mario Batali and New York City restaurateur Ken Friedman.
