A restaurant on the edge of the Fan has closed after nearly two decades of serving up Jamaican flare.

The Jerk Pit at 2713 W. Broad St. closed late last month, said Nathan Hughes, a broker with Richmond-based Sperity Real Estate Ventures who is leasing the vacant space.

Jerk Pit operators Henry Davis and Ethline Caldwell could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.

Founded in 2001, The Jerk Pit served traditional Jamaican and Caribbean specialties, such as braised oxtail and jerk chicken and pork, in the 1,000-square-foot space.

Hughes said he is actively marketing the restaurant space, which is fully equipped and ready for immediate occupancy.

The restaurant sits across Broad from the Science Museum of Virginia, and along a block with other eateries including Sabai and Gus’ Bar & Grill.
