Chef Peter Prime Of Cane Restaurant Is Bringing Trini Flavor to D.C.
If you can’t make it over to the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Cane in Washington, D.C. is the next best thing. Chef Peter Prime, together with his sister Jeanine, created a restaurant on H street with an environment reminiscent of their Caribbean upbringing.
The African and Indian roots of Trini cuisine feature heavily on a menu that includes doubles, jerk wings, pholourie, cow heel soup, and a variety of curries and chutneys.
Chef Prime was trained at the French Culinary Institute in New York City and perfected his craft at establishments like Poste Modern Brasserie, Citronelle, Equinox, and more recently Spark at Old Engine 12, where he refined his Caribbean smokehouse style.
The 33-seat restaurant opened in April 2019 and has taken off. Last September, Cane nabbed ‘New Restaurant of the Year’ at DC’s annual restaurant-industry gala, the RAMMY Awards. Like any good West Indian liming spot, Cane also boasts a robust rum selection. Get a taste of authentic Trini fare the next time you’re in the D.C. area.
