That I could find, this address does not house this restaurant. It appears to be a catering business not a restaurant, and the name on the glass front had nothing to do with the name in Tripadvisor.

Althea will brighten your life. Had the jerk chicken that was a burst of flavor in my mouth. No hot spicy, just flavor spicy, it was wild. Friends had goat & a steak special which they loved. Small place, real home cooking, delightful!
