“A meal at Jerk Shack takes you someplace else”

…one can willfully trigger vacation mode at almost any time and in almost any place. For instance, dinnertime on a weekday in Belltown.

“That’s what we’re after,” Trey Lamont, Jerk Shack’s owner and head chef, tells me later over the phone. “I want Jerk Shack to be the food of the sun. When you walk through the doors you feel like you’re teleported to a place in the Caribbean.” ~ City Arts Magazine, Jonathan Zwickel
