MENU

Pate

Patties of seasoned beef in a crunchy, homemade, puffed pastry. These popular street snacks are enjoyed by children and adults in Haiti. Growing up, Kay always looked forward to Sunday morning mass, because she knew these patties would be waiting for her after church. 

Vegetarian Option: Vegetable Patties 

Salade Russe

A staple in every Haitian household during the holidays and on Sundays, Salad Russe (Russian Salad) is mixture of diced potatoes, beets, onions, carrots in a light aioli. Served on a bed of lettuce, with tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, and sweet peppers. Dressed with Kay’s homemade vinaigrette.

Hibiscus Tea

Originating in North Africa and Southeast Asia, hibiscus grows in many tropical and subtropical climates. Kay's hibiscus tea is deep red in color and has sweet and tart flavors, similar to cranberry. The tea can be served hot or cold. We'll be having ours chilled. 

Griot, Haitian Ratatouille & Duri Djondjon

One of Kay’s favorites, griot is served at special occasions, but it can also be found in street vendors stalls at night. Marinated chunks of pork and turkey fried to perfection: crispy on the outside and succulent inside. Served with a homemade gravy.


Haitian Ratatouille; You can rest assured that this dish will be served at least one day during the week in every Haitian household. It is delicious, healthy and very satisfying with a generous side of white rice, red or black beans soup. Each area of Haiti has its own version. Kay’s ratatouille includes eggplants, chayote, spinach, green beans, watercress and beef. 

Vegetarian: Vegetarian Ratatouille 


Dari Djondjon: Long grain white rice infused with rehydrated dried mushrooms, with herbs and spices. This departure from the usual rice and beans, is a special treat served on Sundays and for special occasions. Vegetarian. 

Morue & Banane Pese

Morue: Hefty flakes of salted Cod fish sautéed in olive oil, onions, garlic, and lemon juice.In Haiti, this dish is frequently served for breakfast with boiled green or fried plantains. Whenever Kay recovered from a bout of sickness, this is the first dish she’d request.


Banane Pese: Green and ripe plantains flattened and fried with a light sprinkle of salt and pepper. Plantains are often served boiled during the week and with meat dishes that have a nice gravy. The fried version is always paired with dishes such as morue, and especially griot. It's just like fried chicken and French fries. Vegetarian.  & Banane Pese

Gateaux au Rum with Homemade Nutmeg Ice Cream

Our members have spoken and they've voted for Kay's rum cake! Pound cake infused with dark Haitian rum basted with a sweet rum sauce. Served with a scoop of Kay's homemade nutmeg ice cream.

About the Chef

Kettely (Kay) Jeanty

 

Kay was born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Growing up, she always hung out with the cooks. She enjoyed the privilege of tasting in advance what would be on the table later. Kay would watch them cook and ask questions. Sometimes, she would get chased out of the kitchen.


Kay immigrated to the U.S. at the age of 15, leaving behind her sister, family members and her beloved country. It was hard being in a new country where she didn’t speak the language, but her mother was already here, which helped with the adjustment. 


As a high school student in New York, Kay became the family cook, preparing two to three meals a day. She learned by trial and error, relying on her memories of the cooks in Haiti andy her family's critical reviews. Although Kay majored in nursing and business, she continued to cook Haitian food, catering weddings and special events.


Kay loves how food brings people together. Her goal is to introduce  people to delicious, healthy Haitian food in a small, family-style setting.


“I want to counter the misconceptions of Haiti being a place of just poverty and voodoo,” says Kay. “In my beloved country, I remember people who laughed, cried, worked hard, took trips to the beach, and ate delicious and satisfying food.-
