Former international cricketer Courtney Walsh, who represented the West Indies as a fast bowler between 1984 and 2001, is part of a cabal of businessmen in Trinidad & Tobago behind the twin republic's newest restaurant and bar aptly called 519 — after Cuddy's number of test wickets.519 is located in the C3 Centre Courtyard — minutes from San Fernando and immediately off the Solomon Hochoy Highway — which is one of the newest malls in Trindad & Tobago.

The much-buzzed-about eatery opened on Friday, May 26, is some 4,300 sq ft, seats 225 and features a casual environment designed by noted restaurant interior designer Kami Jerome.

The menu offerings are handled by Chef Marlon Spencer formerly of the Table Talk Food Awards — The Trinidad & Tobago Edition's award-winning restaurants Krave, Buzo and Chaud and include (no surprise, really) several jerk options. Word on the street is that the festival is still a work in progress, but is getting there!

The signature item on the Limited-Overs tasting menu is a sweet potato oil down which has become quite a talking point as, traditionally, oil down is a breadfruit powered dish (get it!)

Thursday Food affords an exclusive peek.
