  • hey anybody know what this place is like? saw a decent amount of people there passing by last time we were at moroni.

  • It’s a restaurant/bar with a mix of Jamaican and Ethiopian food. It’s also got a bar and a dancefloor in the back. I think they have live music on the weekends. The food is very good and cheap and the overall vibe is very friendly and laidback.

  • The food was incredible and the staff were very friendly. There is no alcohol but the Jamaican iced tea is great. This is becoming one of my favorite spots.

  • Gang: They have a full bar and ‘2 for 1’ happy hour drink specials until 8:00pm.

    @Andy – I fell for Ras on my first visit. I was hooked! Great stage, great food, and a wonderful staff! That’s why I choose this location to produce comedy.

    @JRL @Brian – Exactly! Everything I’ve tasted was amazing!

  • Sounds pretty impressive, go RAS. That block is turning out to be quite a hot spot – if only they could put a beer garden in that building that just went for sale there. . .

  • the bartender at ras is great…talk about a long pour

    they also have dance music on thur and live music fundraisers every friday for progressive orgs

    i love this place
