Mo-Bay is one of Brooklyn best-kept secrets.  An urban paradise located in Fort Greene, one of New York's hippest neighborhoods, the restaurant and bakery serve up a smorgasbord of new Caribbean, Soul and Vegetarian Cuisine in an upscale yet relaxed setting.

This eclectic mix does not stop at food.  You can sense it in the atmosphere which is warm and friendly with a feeling of the Mediterranean.

With a mellow Reggae Jazz beat flowing through the air one essentially transcends onto an island cooling off with one of Mo-Bay's home made juices, like,  sorrel, ginger beer, lemonade or fresh squeezed cane juice.

Beautiful fresh cut flower arrangements, sandblasted table tops, colored banquettes, and fine arts from some of New York's exciting artists in addition to the  intimate courtyard and the main dining room which is often throbbing on weekends and late nights with exuberant diners celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, or other special events makes

Mo-Bay a destination spot.

Best Bammie - Mo-Bay Bammie are the chewy white cassava cakes that one sees too rarely in New York Jamaican restaurants. What a surprise, then, to find an excellent rendition in Fort Greene's slightly upscale MO-BAY (the tourist nickname for Montego Bay), a small and handsome restaurant across from Fort Greene Park. The staff couldn't be nicer, and the jerk chicken (baked version), goat curry, and escovitched fish are all up to snuff as well.      -Robert Sietsema-

Taster's Choice

No need for jury deliberations. The verdict is in, and Judge Glenda Hatchett, star of the eponymous, syndicated courtroom show, enters a judgment in favor of Mo-Bay Restaurant (112 DeKalb Ave between Ashland Pl and Saint Felix St, Fort Greene,, Brooklyn., 718-246-2800). "The food is phenomenal. The curry coconut salmon was absolutely delightful," she says. "And although I had no room left for dessert, I had to take home a slice of the rich Rummy Rum cake a l a mode. What a treat!"


If Caribbean, soul and vegetarian food are what you fancy, then Mo-Bay restaurant is the place tonight. Mo-Bay's interior is upscale yet relaxing and the fresh cut flowers and reggae music gives the place a cool, island vibe. Popular dishes include the curried coconut salmon, pan-blackened chicken and oxtail stew. For vegetarians, the brown-stewed veggie chicken, curry veggie chicken and barbecue veggie chili are so delicious - you won't miss the meat. The dessert menu offers bread pudding with rum sauce and Mo-Bay's famous "rummy rum cake" - soaked in three types of rum and served warm with vanilla ice cream - a slice of heaven.
