"At its worst, conch can be tough and chewy, with a pungent seawater taste. Not so at La Caye, a small Haitian restaurant in Fort Greene where three friends cook up authentic and subtly spiced island cuisine. There, the lambi, as the sea snail is known in Haiti, is served grilled, accompanied by a cool, slightly spicy mango sauce. Like thick strips of confetti with a satisfying char, the lambi is tender with just the right amount of bite. You may not feel like you're at the beach, but you can at least eat like it. Bon mangé!"

"At twilight, broiled conch with Creole sauce and black rice superimposes Caribbean warmth on the “new” Brooklyn." Steve Cuozzo

"The restaurant sits right across from Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), which makes it a popular destination for Haitians and non-Haitian patrons alike. The atmosphere is great. It’s just right size with a cute garden in the back. The service couldn’t be better, and the owner is extremely amiable. I absolutely recommend this restaurant for the Haitian food. It’s perfect for after-work drinks and appetizers, and dinner for couples and small groups. I will return very soon, and I’m planning on trying the “Lambi Boukane” (Grilled conch), “Mayi Moulin”, and the “Legume D’aubergine”.Besides fantastic food and a relaxing atmosphere, the restaurant is usually packed with Haiti’s finest performers and actors. La Caye hosts live jazz and poetry readings twice per week. Emeline Michel and Jimmy Jean-Louis have been spotted there having a great time." Paola Mathe
