Jamaican restaurant to open in historic Asheville space this weekend

The Jamaican restaurant One Love II opens its doors on Sunday. The restaurant is located in downtown Asheville, in the Market Street building that housed the soul-food eatery The Ritz since 1942. That restaurant held its last lunch buffet on Valentine’s Day.

Now the new restaurant appears ready to open on Mother’s Day, boasting a menu of traditional Jamaican dishes like curried goat and jerk chicken. This is second incarnation of the One Love restaurant. This first is located in Hendersonville.
