About Us

OUR STORY

The word “Dukunoo” may be strange to some, but it is steeped in history and has a very simple meaning. Its roots are west African and simply means “sweet thing” or “sweet mouth” when directly translated. Depending on where your family hails from, your recognition of this sweet staple may be a tad bit different, but the basic formula is the same. The sweet treat will always be a starchy pudding-like consistency wrapped in a leaf, tied, and steamed.

In this sense of history and culture that the owners of Dukunoo Jamaican Kitchen, which consists of the mother/daughter-wife/husband team of Leonie McKoy, Shrusan Gray, and Rodrick Leighton, wish to bring to their guests. According to Shrusan Gray, “It is our missing to open a Caribbean restaurant in this electric, chic, artsy and upscale, that will positively represent Caribbean culture.” Her mother, Leonie McKoy, stresses that this restaurant in the heart of Wynwood welcomes locals from all over the world. “Wherever you come from in the world, you will find a vibe here at Dukunoo” says, Ms McKoy.

“Caribbean-owned doesn’t equate to poor service and shabby establishment. We are refining that thought process with our elevated level of service and attention to detail in every aspect of this restaurant, from the quaint lighting, rustic signage and decor, to our modern and utilitarian bathrooms.” states Rodrick Leighton. At Dukunoo Jamaican Kitchen, you can expect an elevated level of service, dine by candlelight, with exquisitely prepared meals presented on proper dinnerware, and never in a Styrofoam box. Our warm and friendly staff will greet you with a smile and show you what real hospitality means. See you soon at Dukunoo.
