A relatively new restaurant (open since 2011) that is wildly popular among Metuchen residents is the Breeze’s Café & Grill.
Breeze’s serves authentic Caribbean cuisine in a friendly and colorful atmosphere. Adorning the cozy establishment’s walls are photographs and paintings of multiple Caribbean islands’ celebrations and festivals. The artwork usually includes smiling faces of people dressed in traditional clothing.
The pictures truly help set the scene for an exploration of a new culture, but the real trance happens when you are greeted by the native, friendly staff, especially the bubbly owner Donna.
One of the most popular meals at Breeze’s is easily the Jerk Chicken Wings. Spicy, fall off the bone, and messy, these authentic wings are a one of a kind, tasty experience.
The sautéed cabbage medley is another popular meal. When the talented chef mixes fresh, bright reds and greens into the dish, it is executed beautifully and deliciously. Sweet golden fried plantains on the side finish off the perfect Caribbean meal.
Among the more exotic foods includes braised oxtails and curry goat. For the adventurous restaurant-goers, these dishes are well worth taking the chance.
Besides their signature food, Breeze’s is also known for its long list of music-themed events. These include the popular steel-pan/drum artists during the monthly Sunday brunch buffets as well as the talent-filled live jazz dinners.
With professional musicians from New York City, these events always receive great responses from Breeze’s dedicated customers.
Breeze’s Café & Grill’s current home is 567 Middlesex Avenue in Metuchen, NJ. Any experience there is sure to be a great one. Call (732) 902-6220 to make a reservation and visit Breezesgrill.com for more information.
