Ms. Icey’s Kitchen and Bar has returned from a 3 month hiatus with a new twist. 

Officially relaunched on March 17, the new escovitch-style cuisines and crafted cocktails have transformed Ms. Icey’s into a modern restaurant with an infusion of R&B and hip hop culture.

The new menu consists of Caribbean classics including red snapper, jerk steak, jerk pork chops, and fresh ackee and saltfish and Ms. Icey’s menu staples chicken and waffles and warm skillet cornbread paired with blueberry jam and house-made praline butter.

Owned by hospitality gurus Tasha Cyril, Clive Ruddock, Yusef Walker, Sopeak Pang, Glenn Wilson, and Sim Walker, Ms. Icey’s management used the restaurant’s hiatus to give the menu a new flair.. 

“We’re super excited to return. We miss the energy from our guests. We’re very proud of the fact that we’re able to deliver great service, amazing food & cocktails, and an even better atmosphere,” said Cyril. “This is a hard combination to master and we’re really glad we’re able to set the standard for our guests.”

The restaurant’s namesake is Icelyn Walker, Yusef and Sim Walker’s late grandmother. The Walker brothers credit their grandmother with surrounding them and the restaurant in their family’s unique background with roots in New York, St. Lucia, Cambodia, and Jamaica.
