If there’s one genre of fare Austin could use more of, it’s Caribbean cuisine. And the genius culinary minds behind prolific local restaurant group Emmer & Rye are happy to lead the way with their newest local showpiece: Canje. The “new-age Caribbean restaurant,” helmed by executive chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph, features an inspired menu that pays tribute to the chef’s Caribbean roots, including some unexpected offerings influenced by the various cultures of the Caribbean, such as Indian, French, and African dishes. But Bristol-Joseph also makes sure he’s appealing to Texas palates, so there’s plenty of beef and pork and peppers to be enjoyed. It all melds together in a tantalizing menu of uniquely succulent cuisine that virtually transports diners to Bristol-Joseph’s grandmother’s home for an authentic Caribbean meal.
