Adriel and Kamonti McFarlane are planning to open a Caribbean/Jamaican restaurant and bar called Likkle Jamayka at 235 S. 2nd St. by the end of the year, according to documents filed with the city of Milwaukee.
Adriel McFarlane declined to comment on the details of the restaurant.
Michael Spooner, who owns the building, said Milwaukee restaurateur Julia LaLoggia, who has operated Ginger since 2008, has decided to move on, so she sold her assets to the McFarlanes who are now leasing the space.
“I wish them a lot of luck,” Spooner said.
LaLoggia could not immediately be reached for comment.
Ginger opened in 2008 in the space formally occupied by Barossa. Barossa was operated for three years by LaLoggia and former business partner Deanne Wecker.
