Two Eighteen Gourmet by Andre Sewell is The New Lunch Spot You Need To Visit

There’s a local’s favorite lunch spot on Mountain View Avenue called 218Gourmet. It’s on a quiet street corner, relatively unassuming and charmingly rustic in appearance, like most Jamaican cook shops are known to be.

Walk in, take a turn around the very small lobby and two table dining room before heading to Raphaelita who will greet you with the familiarity of a long lost friend.

Despite what the name would suggest, it’s not your typical gourmet, but it is a fusion of iconic Jamaican fare with a global influence by young chef, Andre Sewell. After a successful career in tech, Andre took over the family’s catering business last April and has not looked back ever since. By adding gourmet dimensions to typical Jamaican meals, Andre has managed to fuse his technology background with tantalizing pictures of his meals on Instagram and mouthwatering quality.

It’s comfortable, very refined; rustic, yet sophisticated and the food cannot be faulted. From ribeye steak, to lasagna, to red herring & ripe plantains quesadillas, fried chicken and chocolate mousse and everything in-between, the story of the decadent menu is better told through images.


In any case a must-visit and in all cases you must try everything on the menu.

Find the 218 Gourmet at 218 Mountain View Avenue, but call in your order early 946-1878 and tell them PATOO sent you.
