The Real Jerk is coming to the Beach
There was a time, not too long ago, when it looked like the Caribbean restaurant’s days were numbered, so this expansion story is a heartwarming one. Owner Ed Pottinger has confirmed rumours of a second Jerk location opening shop in the Upper Beach. According to Pottinger, the new Jerk will be housed in the former Burger Palace space at 1004 Kingston Road, and will serve all the original restaurant’s staples (chicken, ribs, rotis), plus booze. He wasn’t able to confirm the opening date, but the storefront in question has a sign reading “Oct. 5” propped in the window, so that’s probably something to go on.
