Jam'It Bistro offers traditional Jamaican dishes, Irie Soul dishes, and Italian Fusion. Founder Dawn Skeete says, "I decided to do a fusion that represented the various cultural cuisines in Brooklyn: Italian, Chinese, soul food and Jamaican. Along with the Caribbean classics like oxtails, curry goat and jerk chicken, I also grew up eating spaghetti and meatballs, fried chicken with mac and cheese, and shrimp fried rice. Creating a menu reflective of my childhood meals was easy to do. I pulled together all the favorites, mixed and matched them with Jamaican classics, and Jam’It was born." Opened February 2019.
They have been a very strong and generous player in Red Hook mutual aid response to Covid. A community refrigerator with free food is in front of the restaurant, and Jam'It cooked free hot meals for months with the support of World Kitchen
