Negril Icon restaurateur Cosmo Brown JP

It was a pleasure to meet Negril Icon Cosmo Brown who runs the popular Cosmo’s Seafood Restaurant and Bar on Negril beach. His history explained why his relaxed eatery is so well-managed and impeccable.  Born in Negril, Cosmo had migrated to the US as a youngster, and became a trained chef, managing a busy restaurant in downtown Chicago, “right across from Union Station”. 

He returned to Jamaica in 1976 to establish his restaurant, and now employs a team of 25, 11 of whom are permanent. As well as he did abroad, Cosmo, who is a Justice of the Peace, said he is glad he returned to Jamaica.  “Let me tell you something – Jamaica is the greatest country in the world!”  Cosmo’s wise eyes are full of great stories.  Thank goodness he is here to help keep Jamaica the beautiful destination that we are.
