After three years of serving homestyle, made-from-scratch Jamaican fare at its 20-seat restaurant at 1070 N. North Swan Road, CeeDee Jamaican Kitchen is planning a second location.

The new restaurant, 5305 E. Speedway, could open as early as next month, said Charlene Wilson, daughter of owners Cardell and Deon Harrison.

Wilson said the new location will seat 50 to 60 diners.

CeeDee Jamaican Kitchen’s menu draws from the family’s extensive background in Jamaican food. Wilson said the family does not rely on recipes so much as memory, creating authentic Jamaican dishes that employ curry, oxtails, beef, chicken, fish and goat.

The Swan Road restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and from noon to 9 p.m. Sundays. It is closed Mondays.
