Last time we checked in with Washington Ave. between Lincoln Rd. and Lefferts Ave., we were lamenting the departure of Lenny's Roti Shop. And even before that, we discussed the fact that the space next to Lenny's was "under renovation" for about seven years.
Much to our surprise, the space previously occupied by Lenny's lay vacant while the perpetually renovated storefront next door will soon (relatively) be occupied by a tenant. Based on the new signage, our best educated guess is that the place will be a roti shop named "Caribbean Sweet Hand."
The phrase "sweet hand" is one that we have never heard before (except upon viewing a newborn, perhaps - and in that instance the word 'little' is usually inserted). Does the phrase have any sort of cultural significance?
