Thursday, August 10, 2017

The terrace at Boisdale Canary Wharf has been transformed into a Jamaica getaway, with a vibrant Jamaican theme creating an inviting spectacle for diners and passersby. Boisdale, a popular Scottish restaurant, has added pizzazz to its menu offerings with the inclusion of Jamaican delights. Officially launched by His Excellency Seth Ramocan, Jamaica's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, the Jamaica Garden Terrace will be open until September. The three-month promotion gives patrons to the World Athletics Championships in London opportunities to celebrate Jamaica.

The Jamaica Tourist Board and Boisdale, in partnership with Wray and Nephew, Grace, Appleton Estate Rum, Koko Kanu and Red Stripe Beer, are offering patrons a taste of Jamaica in the heart of London. On the menu one can choose from Reggae Rum Punch, Jerk Chicken, Jerk Pork, Jerk Chicken Wrap and the jerk meal of the day. Jamaican reggae ambassadors Freddie McGregor and Luciano as well as the UK's Yolanda Brown will serve up a delightful music feast.

Long after the World Championships have ended, Londoners will be able to savour the Jamaican experience at the Jamaica Garden Terrace. “There is an undeniable magnetism about Jamaica that keeps attracting people,” said Marcia McLaughlin, deputy director of tourism, marketing at the Jamaica Tourist Board. “As London takes centre stage for the 2017 World Championships in Athletics, many sports enthusiasts and Jamaican supporters will experience a taste of our cuisine, our music and our warm hospitality at the Jamaica Garden Terrace at Boisdale.”
