Although the restaurant is officially closed on Sundays, customers who place their orders by noon on Fridays can arrange to have the five-person meal delivered between 12 noon and 6 p.m. The $45 package includes a dozen pieces of chicken; mac-and-cheese; lima beans; yams and rice. A gallon of iced tea or lemonade costs an extra five bucks.
In addition to the Sunday delivery option, Georgean’s plans to offer downtown delivery throughout the week, and the restaurant’s installing tables outside the store.
“People can get their food to eat in the sun,” owner Deborah Grant says.
Jackson’s short menu features jerk chicken and fish; curried chicken and fish and fried chicken and fish. Available sides include red rice; spicy slaw; mashed cauliflower and pigeon peas. “Of course, we have a double cheeseburger,” Grant adds.
On Thursdays, Georgean’s will suspend its Caribbean menu in favor of “a salute to the Southern style of cooking.” According to Grant, that’s the day to get a single portion of mac-and-cheese.
The restaurant is located at 8-D Line St., the former address of Thai House Wings, which closed last October. (Eagle-eye points to reader Pinaki Santra for spotting the new restaurant sign first.) Georgean’s is scheduled to open Wednesday, keeping an 11:30 a.m.-8 p.m. schedule, Mon.-Thurs. On Fridays and Saturdays, the restaurant will stay open until 11 p.m.
