Jamaica is best known as a Queens transportation hub. It's the primary transfer point for trains to Long Island and the JFK air train. Travelers can find plenty of restaurants along Jamaica Avenue to grab a bite between trains. For decades, Jamaica was a mostly African-American neighborhood, but recent immigrants have come from the West Indies, South Asia, Guyana, and other parts of South America and the Caribbean. Soul food and Caribbean restaurants dominate the dining scene in Jamaica. Use our New York Restaurant search tool to learn more about restaurants in Jamaica.
