If an island getaway is not already a part of your summer plans, there is no need to worry. 2 Sisters 2 Sons can provide a taste of the Caribbean. The family-owned and operated restaurant specializes in authentic Caribbean and Jamaican cuisine. Despite operating as a takeout-only business, the energy at 2 Sisters 2 Sons has been non-stop since it opened in July 2020.
“Me and my sister were born in Jamaica,” said co-owner Denise Josephs. “We are true-blooded Jamaicans.”
The name, 2 Sisters 2 Sons, comes from Denise and her sister running the restaurant with their two sons. The family business is true to Denise’s cooking roots.
“I actually started cooking at a young age. I think I started cooking when I was 12 years old. It was fascinating to me, and I just tried it. I used to always watch my mom you know cook and stuff like that, and then I started doing it, and I really liked doing it. “
As for the food, Denise says 2 Sisters 2 Sons has become a local favorite, being named on several best Jamaican restaurant lists. Customers keep coming back for a variety of signature menu items.
“Our top-selling item is oxtail. We sell lots and lots of oxtails here. That’s number one, and then our jerk chicken, curry chicken, curry goat, and some of our vegan options. We sell a lot of tofu too.”
Upcoming for 2 Sisters 2 Sons, they will be celebrating their second anniversary in July and will be participating in the annual Jerk Fest in Highland Park next month as well.
Since becoming an entrepreneur, Denise has discovered more about herself than she knew previously.
“I’ve learned that I have a lot of patience, and that’s very important.”
