Miss Toya’s, a Cajun/Creole restaurant by local chef Jeffeary Miskiri, is coming to 923 Ellsworth Dr in Silver Spring, the former site of Eggspectation.
Eggspectation, a Montreal-based restaurant with locations across the world, closed back in September 2020 after 15 years in that location.
Miskiri is the founder and owner of Miskiri Hospitality Group, which describes itself as a unique collective of Black, family and woman-owned products and restaurants in the DC area. The group’s restaurants include Creole on 14th and Po Boy Jim’s in DC, as well as Suga & Spice, listed as coming soon to Hyattsville.
Construction on the restaurant is planned to begin later this fall according to an article by Source of the Spring.
Miskiri told Source of the Spring, “Miss Toya’s is the sister restaurant to my full-service restaurant, Creole on 14th, the reason behind it being to expand on Creole and Cajun food” and “The diversity and the body of language that that cuisine presents is so large that I knew that I could something similar but totally different at the same time,” and that he’s “just really excited to bring that Cajun-Creole flair and twist to the neighborhood.”
