The spirit, sounds and flavors of Jamaica will bounce through the lounge at PB Catch Palm Beach Saturday night. That’s when The Shack, the lounge’s summer pop-up series, turns its focus to spicy bites and laid back island music.
On the menu at this “Jamaican Seafood Fest:” conch souse (marinated conch with citrus, chili, cilantro, $16), crispy whole yellowtail snapper (with braised callaloo and spiced sweet potato, $34), Jamaican banana fritters (with Blue Mountain coffee and crème fraiche, $10), among other a la carte items.
In the backdrop: a reggae band playing live tunes.
Each summer, the seafood-centric restaurant turns its lounge into a beach-themed “shack” that serves as a backdrop to island-y sips, bites and tunes.
