Taste the African Diaspora in Central District.
From continental African to southern soul, vegan to greasy spoon, the Central District presents a menu of unique flavors form the global African experience.  

Some of our favorite restaurants in the CD are...

Lake Chad CafeLake Chad Cafe

Coffee and a fusion menu featuring specialty items from the central African country and Cajun. Great atmosphere for meetings with live music and DJ's throughout the week.

Taste of The Caribbean -

Taking the Caribbean offering of Central District from Haiti to Jamaica. Continues to tradition of caribean food in Central District at the location that was previously Waid's Haitian Restaurant. Authentic and probably as close to Jamaica as you can get outside of say Flatbush Brooklyn or Miami. 

Jerk Chicken, Curry Chicken, Patties and more. Whagan!

Chef Cafe

One of my favorites and a hidden jewel. Affordable and delicisous. Asa Wot. Fish and spaghetti, doro tibs, green chicken, veggie combo.



EzellsEzell's Fried Chicken - 

Oprah's favorite fried chicken, what more can we say?!  Ezells has been a mainstay at 23rd & Jefferson since 1984. Spicy is the best plus the peach cobbler.

Simply Soulful -

Chicken and waffles. Biscuits & Gravy. Mac and cheese.
