Both of them. Blessed. Jamaica's kiss touched two brothers – breddas in Jamaican, apart for way too long. One under the island's sunny skies — the other rooted in the windy city. Ease up, everything cook an curry now. Executive Chef Chris Douglas made the long journey from Jamaica to the city by the lake… and brought the family recipes with him. Joined by Chicago native, brother Terry Meghie, and his wife Carrie, a partnership was formed to launch the first Mr. Brown's Lounge in 2009.
Let's get together. In 2015, Mr. Brown's Lounge became the downtown destination for authentic Jamaican cuisine with the opening of its second location.
Mr. Brown's Lounge showcases an authentic Jamaican vibe with a modern twist. Black bamboo, a framed record album wall and Rasta hat art pieces enliven while greens, gold and creamy white hues warm the space. The dining atmosphere is inviting and relaxed with reggae beats mingling among recipes passed down through generations. Jerk chicken, fried plantains, oxtail, and jerk filet mignon has guests all likky-likky, a Jamaican term that captures the feeling of a meal so good that you are greedy about eating everything in sight.
You will be left feeling happy, or irie as Jamaicans might say, when an escape from the frenzied city lifestyle is much needed and well deserved. Much love.
Caribbean cooking & tropical drinks served in a sleek, casual setting with reggae album art & DJs.
