Shawn and Noyan Edmond specialize in stews, jerks, and patties at Rite Spice Caribbean in Lynn.
Just ask Jamaican-American cashier Natisha Dunnbar, who couldn’t be more enthused about what’s coming out of the kitchen. At the heart of the restaurant is Noyan’s husband, Shawn Edmond, who presides over the open kitchen in crisp chef whites and a towering toque. With a background at Ritz-Carlton and Sandals resorts in Montego Bay, Shawn is re-creating the soulful dishes he learned to cook as a child back home in Jamaica. The family opened Rite Spice in August. Stews, jerks, and patties (traditional Jamaican hand-pies filled with meats and vegetables) make up the menu.
