I was having my usual sorrel & ginger beer at Spur Tree catching up with owner/chef Sean John and I see a Maxim magazine on the bar. The Braised Oxtail is the 2011 #2 Best Dinners in America according to Maxim. And reggae artist Sean Paul wrote the review “When I’m in New York, I like Spur Tree down on the Lower East Side for authentic Jamaican food. It’s a small restaurant, but the taste of the food is huge. It keeps me coming back, especially when I’m homesick. They do an oxtail Jamaican-style, so it’s braised and stewed down. The meat’s really tender, and it’s served with a really thick sauce and rice and peas covered in gravy. It’s bone-lickin’ good. I was home recently and thought, Lemme make some oxtail. I did, but it wasn’t as good as theirs.”
I coax Sean outside and ask him the small story with Maxim, new items on the menu, we happily sample the new Jamaican-asian mini-jerk steam pork buns..so good….so good..u cant go wrong. ..and where the name Spur Tree originates. 2011 is Sean’s year. He was also selected by MACY\’s as 1 of the Top NYC Chefs.

Heya i am for the primary time here. I came across this board and I in finding It really
useful & it helped me out a lot. I am hoping to offer one thing
again and aid others like you helped me.
Thanks for your useful post. In recent times, I have come to be able to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by this build up associated fluid relating to the lining in the lung and
the torso cavity. The infection may start inside chest place and
multiply to other limbs. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include weight reduction, severe
breathing trouble, nausea, difficulty swallowing, and puffiness of the neck and face areas.
It must be noted that some people existing with the disease don’t experience any serious indications at all.
