20 Black Chefs and Black-Owned Restaurants & Bars in Washington, DC


This family-owned bar and grill now sports two locations in DC – one on H Street NE, the other in Shaw. Caribbean recipes are interpreted with a Cajun flair on the robust menu, which features signatures like the District Po Boy (sirloin steak, bacon, provolone, shrimp, remoulade sauce) and the Gumbo on H (andouille sausage, shrimp, Cajun-style chicken, scallion rice). Po Boy Jim also offers brunch and late-night dining, meaning it should be on your list of late Saturday night AND early Sunday morning destinations.
