Recently a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at The Island Caribbean Cuisine and Drinks, a family-owned-and-operated restaurant with a full bar that specializes in the unique tastes of foods of the Caribbean Islands through authentic cooking and beverages. The grand opening event was attended by Mayor Gary Christenson, Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley and family and friends. The restaurant is located at 118 Ferry St. (the site of the former Ferry Street Food & Drink), and Owner and Chief Operating Officer Chantal Quessa (a Malden resident) anticipates creating employment opportunities for 12 individuals. She brings a wealth of health-care management, cooking and customer service experience to the new restaurant, which she hopes will be known for its food as well as fabulous customer service.
