Where can you find authentic Caribbean cuisine right near the water? That’s right you guessed it, on South Street. The Blue Banana Café was conceptualized by Owner Rod Millwood, recognizing that Philadelphia has no restaurants with authentic island taste coupled with the fine dining ambiance traditionally offered in metro Philadelphia. Besides being best known for the delicious menu the café also serves as gallery for some creative art affordably priced, import wines and even beer that is near impossible to
find in the States.
Rod Millwood, also head chef, has made it his personal challenge to create specialty items on his menu not to be found or duplicated anywhere.
His famous Mango Salsa which serves as a condiment is so well received its said to be requested by the bottle.
The Blue Banana experience is warm and attentive. Often working overtime to create affordable idea’s for customers during these tough economic times like.
South Street is host to Philadelphia’s most diverse crowd and is often overlooked in comparison to the heavily populated Center City market. Next time you are in search of a great meal in a relaxed fine dining atmosphere try The Blue Bananas Café, where Caribbean cuisine meets inner city sexiness.
