Tavel Bristol-Joseph and Emmer & Rye team to open Caribbean restaurant

2 min read

Chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph left Guyana for the United States when he graduated high school. Almost 25 years later, he is turning back to his home country for inspiration as he and his partners in the Emmer & Rye Hospitali Group prepare to open Caribbean-inspired restaurant Canje this fall at 1914 E. Sixth St. in East Austin. 

The new project, named after the national bird of the small South American coastal country, will give Bristol-Joseph the first opportunity of his culinary career to explore the flavors of his home, a country rich with influences from Africa, India, Europe and East Asia. 

The chef, who last year was named one of Food & Wine magazine’s best new chefs, knows that many Austin diners likely have limited knowledge of his home country, and he is excited to share Guyana’s array of flavors through dishes like jerk chicken, spiced beef patties, roti, ceviche and pepper pot.
