D.C. Chef Jeffeary Miskiri is opening a Caribbean-influenced Southern restaurant in the Shoppes at Arts District Hyattsville.
Located at 5557 Baltimore Ave., next to Chipotle, Suga & Spice does not yet have an opening date.
The Miskiri Hospitality Group describes the new restaurant as “a vibrant and casual, Southern cuisine restaurant with a sprinkle of Caribbean flair.”
A native of Takoma Park who grew up working in his family’s restaurants, Miskiri is expanding in other ways, also opening a new cajun restaurant in the Shops at Penn Branch, on the southern side of the Anacostia River.
Although the pandemic hurt the restaurant industry, Miskiri told the Washington Business Journal last year that he was buoyed by efforts to support Black-owned businesses in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.
He also said he hoped to expand to Maryland and Virginia with the eventual goal of becoming “a national brand.”
