DUNN'S RIVER RESTAURANT

From the mural of natural scenery on the wall, to the wooden placemats on the tables, nowhere in Hartford gives off the ambiance of an island quite like Dunn’s. Their offerings span the menu of Jamaican cuisine, from ackee to oxtail, and there’s nary a miss in sight. Wash everything down with imported Jamaican soda or coconut water.
