A word about the experience
The Pimento experience and studio highlights the traditional aesthetics of Caribbean cuisine by presenting a new wave of seasonal dishes. The Family-style menu is a modern take on Caribbean family dinner featuring a curated medley of seasonal produce and fresh ingredients. To complement the experience, I paired signature beverages to mirror the menu, which allows the distinct flavors to shine.
At this time, guests are limited to private dining for intimate parties of 3-8 guests to provide everyone with a safe and comfortable experience.

What to expect
Venue was beautiful. Immaculate. Toya delightful and attentive. Food was nothing short of spectacular. Highly recommend this event. Our group will be back and bringing friends.
It was a wonderful meal, prepared with care by Toya and her mother. The presentation was excellent. The room was super clean with extra touches such as fresh flowers on table and extra table decorations.
Words aren’t enough to describe our meal & Toya’s delivery between The Caribbean & The East was PERFECTLY MATCHED. One of the BEST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS we’ve experienced. I highly recommend The EATWITH Community to sample Toya’s presentation & ambiance
10/10. The second you enter Toya's space you feel a sense of warmth, almost as if you've arrived at your own home. You are greeted with booties for your feet, hand sanitizer, and the most delicious smell of home fragrance and food. Toya's home is phenomenal but her food is OUT OF THIS WORLD. My taste buds were having their own little dance party. Every dish was a new adventure into an unknown world of flavors. The first dish, Garden Petite Porridge gave me an instant flashback to my grandmothers porridge in the Dominican Republic, I mean wow, wow, wow. All in all I cannot wait to go back and dine with Toya, the world needs to know about this incredible experience. Thank you Toya for the most amazing brunch!
